It baffles me why anyone would send unencrypted e-mail with even the slightest expectation of confidentiality. We've been saying for *years* that you shouldn't put anything in unencrypted e-mail that you wouldn't be happy putting on a postcard.

Lots of mailservers do opportunistic encryption of the SMTP channel these days, too, so you can't eavesdrop as a passive attacker anymore.
Now you have to ~intercept the envelope, open it, read it, put the mail in a new envelope, and send it on the the destination~.
