They will only do that kind of stuff if you are doing anything illegal and are under investigation...

But they can do it at any time they like to for training purposes and such.

They(your ISP) can learn the following.

What phone number you are using.
What modem you are dialing into.
What kind of computer you have.
What browser you are using.
What IP addresses you visit.
What files you download.

And with any type of legal action being done they can
record and read your email.
Thats why you should use the free email service at

I believe its the same with newsgroups.
