That's a good question.  What I'd imagine is that the emails would go  
back to WordPress.com and then WordPress.com would communicate with  
your WordPress.org powered blog and add the new post or comment.  In  
that regard it would follow the same pattern as adding a new comment  
or post via email to a WordPress.com blog.

I don't know how that impact the various laws for email logging in  
other countries.
