This is a good question. In certain countries, I would 100% not be comfortable with law enforcement having automatic access to my email history. I would make every effort to ensure my email was not being stored in such a jurisdiction. In a country like Australia, the US or the UK, I do not think the current risks are huge. However, it is not impossible that governments will appear in those countries which could grossly abuse subpoena power. Other things being equal, a country with better privacy protection would be preferable.
