Follow-up on Secure (on Not) Email

A few weeks ago, we asked which is the most secure email. See the original item here…

One reader felt that Hushmail was no longer any more secure than the rest of the pack. Is that your understanding? If so, what are our options these days? One reader, Ed, mentioned he was using an encryption tool with Gmail. But I would think that slows down the very reading/composing/sending process that has helped make Gmail so popular. Another reader felt we had been a bit biased when we used the phrase “made a deal with the devil.” If you felt the same, please forgive. We just wish/hope that some company can create truly secure communication. Do you know of one?

Your Favorite Super-Secure Email Service?

It’s been some time since we looked at super-secure email services. And since we all know (or at least suspect) that Microsoft and Google have both made a deal with the devil, so to speak (in that certain governments have forced their hand, refusing to give bandwidth unless Microsoft and Google would give them a backdoor into email accounts (if for no other reason than in the name of fighting terrorism), what super-secure email service might you recommend to workers today (if they positively have to keep things on the down low)? Maybe Hushmail has finally managed to modernize a bit?

Are they the standard against which all other services are judged? What’s YOUR opinion?
