Mailbox.org: Privacy made in Germany.
Many providers claim to be storing their users’ e-mails on encrypted hard drives. While this may suggest security, it actually means very little in practice. In order for the server to work, the hard drive needs to be remain open without encryption during operation – around the clock. No matter if it’s hackers, the government, or your provider: Whoever has access to the server also has access to your e-mails. The only way for your data to be safe would be to turn off the mail server.
