Please, get a sense of proportion. Nobody will be trying to get at the messages you send to other users. We have much more important things to worry about than the idea that somebody might go to all the trouble of trying to intercept our traffic (very hard to do) and sift through it just to see what messages you're sending to other users.

I am not worried about a attack against osm, but I know many places where the internet is legaly or illegally controlled, sniffed on and blocked.

If you do not use your own private internet connection this can also happen within your local network.

I prefere to be sure that no third person is reading my mails.
