SNOWDEN’S EMAIL SERVICE OF CHOICE, LAVABIT, HAS RETURNED
THE FLOOR IS LAVA ONCE MORE.
On January 21, Lavabit re-launched its webmail service after having to suspend its operations mid-2013 due to a US investigation into Edward Snowden, one of the service’s users. Lavabit offers a private and secure encrypted webmail service using the newly released “global standard” Dark Internet Mail Environment (DIME) and Magma, the mail server itself. Two paid options are available with 5GB or 20GB of storage for new users, while existing users can migrate their accounts to the new system.
