All we need now is for them to remove advertising lol.

Google has announced a pair of new security upgrades for Gmail and proposed a new industry standard for secure email transport (VentureBeat). The security updates are new full-page safe browsing warnings if you click on an email link that leads to a page in Google’s database of malicious content providers and extra information on what to do if Google detects that a government is trying to access your account, including guides on setting up two-factor authentication. Meanwhile, the company, along with other electronic communications companies, has submitted a draft specification to the Internet Engineering Taskforce (IET) for SMTP Strict Transport Security (SMTP STS), which would allow mail service providers to flag their support for TLS encryption, thus allowing SMTP servers to ensure that they only send messages through channels that support encryption.
