IRS claims it can read your email without a warrant

In this CNET article some disclosed documents reveal that the IRS claims it can read your email without a warrant.

An IRS 2009 Search Warrant Handbook obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union argues that “emails and other transmissions generally lose their reasonable expectation of privacy and thus their Fourth Amendment protection once they have been sent from an individual’s computer.”

This is another reason why it’s probably a good idea to host your own email, as opposed to going with a service like Gmail or iCloud.
