Thanks for transcribing that!
I realize you are only the transcriber, but if I understand the table
correctly I see some errors/ambiguities for Hushmail. Note that I have
a free acct. and so have no personal knowledge of their paid accounts.
-- My understanding of that table is that Hushmail can only receive
email. That is not true. It is perfectly possible to use Hushmail as a
normal email acct. (receive *and* send*) via their web interface. I do
not know if SMTP is available on a paid acct.
-- IMAP and POP3 are only available for paid accts. Hushmail's business
model is selling email accts and they impose quite a number of
restrictions on the free accts. to persuade you to pay. This includes
requiring you to log in at least every 3 weeks to keep the account
-- This was left blank in the table but I am pretty sure that Hushmail
provides aliases with its paid accts.
-- this was also left blank in the table but according to a reply from
Hushmail to a question of mine, messages between Hushmail users which
are marked for encryption are stored on the server encrypted. Emails
with non-Hushmail users that are sent/received as plain text are stored
as plain text.
