    What the hell? Microsoft now reserves the right to search through a person's hotmail account based on suspicion?

    Yes. Read the Microsoft Services Agreement [microsoft.com], section 3.5. It's right there in black and white.

    Be careful what you agree to.

    In Europe, TOS, internal rules, contracts, etc can not overpower national laws, they automatically became invalid.

    you can not sign a contract saying you want to be a slave or want to be tortured (but many companies try to do that)

      The same is true in the US, it's just that the national laws are weaker.
