Re: So, what are FOSS e-mail client /server options?

Did a US judge not recently rule that MS locating servers in Europe would not protect them from data-mining by US officials without needing a court warrant?

Actually, you don't need a judge for that, it's implicit in the combination of 5 federal laws that make it impossible for any US company to protect personal information, even if they wanted to. If you're a multinational, just about the worst place to locate your HQ is in the US (at least, from a privacy and IP protection perspective).
