Hey guys. I just wanted to let you all know my feelings about Countermail after being a full subscriber for 6 months. I used to have a Lavabit account until the closure of Lavabit and found Countermail was my only real alternative that included encrypted storage. I will say Countermail offers more then Lavabit, but a lot I don't even use. I can say with honesty after my year is up I wont be re-subscribing. Not because the service is bad, its just three little problems. (1) Lavabit: $6 a year. Countermail: $59 a year. (2) Lavabit: Clean UI, very simple no hassle for Thunderbird/Outlook. Countermail: Clunky UI. Complex, big hassle configuring Thunderbird/Outlook. (3) Lavabit: HTTPS web/Thunderbird/Outlook. Countermail: JAVA web, requires JAVA, complex Thunderbird/Outlook Setup. I'm not saying Countermail is bad, I'm just saying its very overpriced and with StartMail in the works what is the point really? I could not even get Countermail to work on my phone, and I'm no newbie. Also very inconvenient if your phones browser does not have JAVA if you try to do it that way, it flat out won't work. I would be happy to stay on if they severely reduce their price, make the UI cleaner fix it so it does not have to use JAVA and just add simple HTTPS web based message access, it would very much make the whole thing simple for people. I hardly even use it, its just going to waste because its such a bother to access sometimes. Anyway, Just stating my opinion on the matter, as of now I'm not going to renew. Its just not worth the huge price tag for what your actually getting.
