Chris - remember though that law enforcement investigators will handle the content of stored communications very carefully, and will require the CSP to disclose it only when they have obtained a Court Production Order.

It's not just RIPA and the DPA that play a role here.

Hacking into your email box can however be prosecuted under the Computer Misuse Act 1990, which carries a maximum six month sentence. This would also apply to mobile phone voicemail if it is stored on computers, rather than on a bank of highly trained budgerigars.

I agree with the above.

The blog was to comment on the protection afforded just by RIPA and not any other legal provision or procedure. But I admit the title of the piece does not express that limitation.
