TechLife Australia - - HOTSPOT -

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.
