I didn't say that.  What I *said* was "one should *expect* a nation-state
adversary to go after your mail hosting company via multiple avenues of attack,
because it's already been tried before".  Google is indeed one of the better
actors.  But if you're a target, maybe it's time to reconsider whether the
phrase "hosting company" should be included in your environment *at all*.
