I am looking for an alternative for my current e-mail provider (gmail). I would like to gain back a little bit more "privacy" on the internet. I would like the following things:
- The e-mails I send and receive are not available in bulk for companies like NSA(so best is to locate the servers outside the USA).
- The company that host the e-mail server stores my mails encrypted so only me and the receiver can view it.
These are the most important 2 point which come in mind right now, but maybe there are more things that can be added.
I have founded 3 options to achieve this:
I am kind leaning towards the first one for the reason that that the only one is that is located in switzerland. The other two are located in (I hope this is correct) Germany. After some research became clear that Germany has worked in the past with the NSA and is not really what I want.
Question: Is protonmail.ch the way to go? Am I approaching the problem from the good angle? Any thought or advise is welcome!!
