It would be fairly straightforward for the vendor to start scanning drafts, though.

You would have better luck setting up a private webserver (ideally not hosted) and having users save encrypted text files for one another (the encryption would need to take place on the client). Users SSH in to share information.

Since we're on this topic, and purely for theoretical reasons - it
would be impractical as a general means of conducting business -
another way to communicate privately with someone using public webmail
accounts is to set up an account and share the password with the
person you wish to communicate with. The correspondents write messages
to each other by saving them in the drafts folder, where they can each
read and respond to when they log in.

Since the messages are always 'draft's and never leave the server as
'sent', they don't get scanned either by Google or by anyone
eavesdropping on internet traffic. Sharing the password of a Gmail
account with someone else probably violates Google's terms of service
and could lead to your account being suspended if detected (which they
might do if you're regularly logging in from different sides of the
world), but like I said, I mention this only out of technical
interest.
