Title 18, Chapter 119, sections 2510 through 2522. It forbids "interception" of electronic mail. Interception is defined as "acquiring the contents", but it's defined broadly enough that if you get the message onto your hard drive and don't deliver it, obviously you weren't acquiring it for the purpose of delivering it, so you have intercepted it for reasons not related to providing the service, and thus have committed a felony for EACH email intercepted.
