    Other emails can be searched by Google. Yes, you can peep on it.

    The idea is, one Google advanced search string is filetype: . It is used to find out any file only. Now I'm using this string as a tool,I am searching for filetype:eml eml intext:"Content-Type: image/jpeg".
    Look at the keyword. It is finding a file with extension eml and that eml should have a Line Content-Type: image/jpeg. Now remember the old days, MIME encoding of a email. When ever we are attaching a .jpg file, that line should come in .eml file. So, the full keyword is searching for filename any with extension .eml which is email file extension, and it should contain a .jpg file, may be some photo or other picture from the web. You can't belive if you are not checking it yourself.

    Code:
    filetype:eml eml intext:"Content-Type: image/jpeg"

    if ur looking for conspiracy theory , heres one for all ur x-files fans .

    New desktop tool could be used to scan ur whole system to search for files and content which can be used by security agencies around the world . I think u even have to be online after u install google . u dont have to be worried if u dont do anything illegal . TRUTH is really out there . prob is , its truth abt u ;)

    Firewall, we need a firewall even in Google search now :roll: Good info mate. But none of the pictures get displayed. They are just a bunch of ASCII characters on the screen.
