What a response to a privacy complaint Indiatimes-22 oct 2008

Sir,You have not addressed the primary issue of what right do you have to create undeletable folders in my email account?and put in undeletable mails.You presume that these undeletable mails make our experience of reading our mails "pleasant".By any internet standards this violates the spam and privacy policies.You are in violation of the country's and world cyber laws.I have very very serious concerns about your ability to respect individual privacy.There are many other email services which do not invade user privacy in this fashion.
However I reserve my right to complain to any authority I choose on this issue.Therefore I may choose to close my accounts on this issue without any further reference to you.Sincerely yours,
