Solved Email security from service provider

Specs: Windows 7, CPU/RAM
Is it possible for the email service provider to modify the contents of an email sent by a subscriber? Since they can view the contents, surely they can modify also.

I doubt they would do this unless there was a very important reason to do so. Just think about the thousands of emails they handle - it would be a mammoth task to make such changes on a broad scale.

Although I said "possible" earlier, in the real world it would be most unlikely and probably never.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

More likely your address book is corrupted/infected.

EXACT method of sending email please.

Anything is "possible" but it is unlikely they are removing text. They might remove a viral attachment or divert an email to a Junk folder.

If you tell us more about the problem you are having we might be able to help.
Also let us know what email service or program are you using?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Altered emails would eventually be noticed by subscribers and once revealed, wouldn't bode well for the provider.

As I told earlier, out of curiosity, I asked it. In fact I came across a news where, police people took stock of the emails of a person. So I became curious about, whether emails can be a valid evidence in the court of law. Now it appears, it cannot be an evidence. However thanks a lot.

I'm sure if email records were subpoenaed by a court the email provider would have to give them up. That's a different situation than you originally asked about.
