    On their website:
    "We have suffered catastrophic destruction at the hands of a hacker, last seen as aktv@94.155.49.9
    This person has destroyed all data in the US, both primary and backup systems. We are working to recover what data we can.
    "

    I wonder if they will keep the same slogan, 'Making email safe for the masses'. ...

    Let's hope for their customers a local copy of their emails.
