How secure is email?

Not very.

Don’t ever send anything via email that you wouldn’t be happy for a random sysadmin to read.

These are words I live by now, thanks Pete.

When you send your email off into the ether it follows a journey which I’ve illustrated below. And guess what? A copy is kept on each server along the way. Which means that the sysadmin for each of those servers has access to your emails if they want to.
