    If X sends message to Y through gmail, where X and Y are email ids, is it possible to some one to know X has sent the email to Y and vice versa.

    Thanks

    Is it possible for someone other than X or Y to know? It's possible Z knows.

    A compromised account could have Z watching the inbox, monitoring over IMAP, or receiving a copy of forwarded emails.

    Z help desk or some other team could be looking at your screen if you login from work.

    If X or Y suspect there is a problem they should change their passwords, account reset information, and only login from trusted computers/

    Is this the kind of answer that you were looking for?

    Let my email id is x@gmail.com, I send emails to many people through x@gmail.com. A person Z knows my email x@gmail.com, this is the only information known to Z. Is by any means possible to Z to know whom I sent the email or who sent me the emails. In general is it possible to Z to know my contact details. If it is possible, how can I protect from this.


    Thank You

    Hello,

    No, Z should not be able to know that X is sending email to Y.
