StartMail is an upcoming secure email service from the people behind anonymous search engine StartPage. They are not live yet, but I thought they were interesting enough to include.

They look technically secure, offering end-to-end encryption and they promise minimal logging. They are based in the Netherlands, which means better slightly better protection of the right to privacy than the US. From their privacy policy:

Any request or demand from any government (including the US) to deliver user data, will be thoroughly checked by our lawyers, and we will not comply unless the law which actually applies to us would undeniably require it from us. And even in that hypothetical situation, we would refer to the fact we have no personal user data to share. In the fourteen years we’ve been in business, we have never received such a request.

Exact features and pricing is unknown. I’ll update the site as soon as there is more information.
