Yep. I started reading this thread because of my concern/worry over my hushmail account just being deleted yesterday because of their stated 'violation of terms of service' nonsense. And now I can't stop cracking up over Jewy's reply, "...reduce my computer to silicon and plastic dust...." Seriously, LMAO :-D

Hushmail sucks.

Hushmail is quite possibly the worst choice in terms of having a private and discreet email provider that respects the privacy of it's users IMHO.

I couldn't agree more. In all seriousness, one is better off "hiding in plain site" via the use of a Gmail or Yahoo Mail account than entrusting their private communications to Hushmail.

No doubt. I learned that lesson that hard way.

I always wondered why most of the vendors use Gmail or Yahoo vs safe-mail and I think I now know - IMAP. Very interesting concept. Is there an IMAP web based client to read, move and then destroy?

 

What about www.anonymousspeech.com ?  It is not free but they claim to be outside of the reach of the G and also provide the ability to create unlimited aliases with a few of their related domains. You could theoretically create an email for each contact.

Safe-Mail is from Israel, if you use this service for communication, you could as well directly send copies of all your documents to Homeland Security. Seriously, don't use it.

If you are looking for an email provider which will not spy on you, choose one from Europe! They are bound to Europe's General Data Protection Regulation and far away from US / China standards. In Europe, no one would even think of spying on their customers, I can't believe that US companies would do something like this.

The difference between European and American email providers is, that the European ones usually charge money for providing IMAP and other features that Google offers for free. If googled a bit and found three maybe interesting email providers for you, they are all available in English:

Disroot based in the Netherlands. They offer IMAP for free and 1 GB mail space:
https://disroot.org/en/

Mailbox.org based in Germany. IMAP and 2 GB mail space for 1 Euros per month. Encrypted mailbox.
https://mailbox.org/en/
https://restoreprivacy.com/mailbox-org/

Mailfence based in Belgium. IMAP and 5 GB for Euro 2,50 per month. Kind of  a Google Alternative with Docs and Calendar, etc.
https://mailfence.com/
https://restoreprivacy.com/mailfence/

 

If you would like to stick with an American company, then maybe get a Microsoft Office 365 subscription for 56 Euros per year. It includes IMAP, EXCHANGE, OneDrive, ms office apps, ms office online, calendar etc. I also have a subscription with them. If you register as a European citizen, their servers will be located in the Netherlands and in Ireland and protected by European privacy laws. The trick would be to order the serial number from e.g. amazon.DE, they won't ask for your home address. B00ISRZFES

You can trust all of them in handling your personal stuff with respect and not spy on you like Google or Hushmail do.

 

If you are looking for something special, then use CTEMPLAR based in Iceland. They are not suited for everyday mail, but the best in terms of protection. While Google never physically deletes a "deleted" email, and Switzerland and Germany and all of Europe have data retention laws that force email providers to keep backups of deleted content for e.g. in Germany 6 months long, in Iceland there is no such thing as a data retention law. If you delete an email with CTEMPLAR, it is immediately gone, physically deleted. Also, CTEMPLAR keeps no logs and encrypts your mailbox. If you use CTEMPLAR together with privnote.com or temp.pm and don't forget to delete your emails, there is no way you could be tracked. I think the free version is good enough if you use privnote.com.

PS: If there were no data retention laws, POP would be safer than IMAP since with POP emails are being deleted from the server after they were copied onto your device.
