That's a valid point , I don't think I've ever heard of an email host being
targeted except to subpoena evidence.  I know that web hosting providers
have though ; whether these provide file access via FTP or HTTP isn't
relevant.  The EFF has been active in this area for a while , I'd assume
that they're familiar with the relevant precedents.
