@sneak something tells me they corrupt the emails at-rest, and need to uncorrupt them first. But even if you want to trust Google to protect you, this "service" is redundant because most browsers support Google Safe Browsing. My theory is that, since they got caught spying with GSB and had to do a less leaky implementation, they decided to snoop people's emails instead.
