Subject description: Very secure email server
 

If you don't want any personal details being given to 'interested parties', then try 'bitmessage.ch'.
You can acess this with Tor or a re-configured Seamonkey.
I use this for all my email, thus no need for gmail and the like.

It's worth noting that the NSA, CIA, etc. aren't breaking any U.S. laws by reading email that's stored in a server outside the U.S..

The only way to be sure that no one but the recipient can read your email is to encrypt it before you send it. Of course, even the recipient can't read an encrypted message if he's lost the key. Laughing Plus, encrypting your email could be a red flag singling you out for special attention by institutions looking to justify their existence and increase their budget. Shocked

Barkin:

I was just reading about that a month or so ago. Interesting concept. Are there any tools you can share on this?

Best,

I think this is probably an example of the sharp end of "operation chokepoint" which seems to be the current method of choice for controlling public activities where military options are not possible.

"Proton Mail" seems to have a reputation as being the most secure email provider - if you can actually get an account...
