    And how does it differ from the protection of a normal hotmail account?

    Could you define what you mean by "most secure" email?

    If I know what you're asking for I might be able to answer your question.

    Well, my guess would be that most of them are going to be based on the Gmail/Hotmail template so if the email provider has been around a few years they are probably decent with their security. The problem with email is that it's very insecure by nature. As far as the government getting in, the only way you're going to manage that is if the email provider is hosted outside of the United States (if in fact you are in the U.S. to start with) and the reason a foreign server is preferable is because it's a huge pain in the ass for the government to get all the permissions necessary to get the country where the server is hosted from to agree to let them into you account.

    At least that's the way it's supposed to work in theory.

    This probably isn't the answer you were looking for and I am by far not an expert on this subject so maybe someone who knows more than I could chime in. In general terms, email is not secure and the best rule of thumb is that if you don't want someone to read something in your email account simply don't type or send it by email. Use a phone, send a fax but don't use email. Hell, use Skype as it is encrypted.

    We just started a new service, named: Cryptex.email

    You can send/receive encrypted messages via our services. Cryptex.email encrypt/decrypt the messages on client side, so it is one of the most secure solutions.

    hxxp://cryptex.email (yes the tld is .email :) )
