Re: [tor-talk] Secure email with limited usable metadata
I would think that simply finding a mail server that doesn't log
ANYTHING (like what StartMail is about to offer) and encrypting
everything should be enough. Of course, you'd need to trust that the
service really isn't logging anything but that could be solved by
accessing it via Tor.
So StartMail (when it opens) via Tor should do the trick.
Just a thought,

On a per account basis, every message that is not encrypted to the public pgp key of the address is dropped, too. users use pop3/smtp over a hidden server to download/send messages.
