    That would work after the user has been targeted, but not on any emails they received before that (if the system I suggest could be implemented). What I'm imaging is not perfect, but perhaps better than nothing.

    What's the alternative exactly? Getting an email service in a country that can't legally force this on someone?

    Tutanota: AT&T is blocking Tutanota. This shows why we must fight for net neutrality.

    That sucks of course, but the simple solution is a quality VPN. Sure lets keep screaming at them, but in the meantime I want access to my Tutanota as needed.

    Naturally, the alternative would be to use PGP/GPG to set it up in an E2EE manner yourself. But, obviously, this would mean that your contacts are required to do the same.

    Another option would be to host your own mailserver - which in turn requires skills and effort to set it up and keep it running smooth and secure.

    I love Tutanota. Flawless performance on my end. Hopefully they can prevent further DDOS much more quickly. Luckily for me I wasn't using their service during the past critical time.

    USA still the best. But barely.
    I suspect the 3letters. Stupid of them not to ask for ransom. Like I've said dozens of times if you have top notch anonymity & advertise it. Then you are sure to be attacked until they have a way in that is not detected. That's why (& I'm lazy) I don't learn how to have nation-state security. Besides my info is already available to them. But I could be wrong.
