Discreet Email

We are the only ones who obfuscate our infrastructures across four continents so no single court system has jurisdiction.

Thanks

Hmm.. I just tried twice to set up an account. It confirms that I have but then it tells me that login has failed. I know I used the right credentials.

What's the advantage of Discreet Mail over any other email service, where both sender and receiver use some sort of PGP to encrypt messages?

I love how they say in their Terms section if you have any questions "contact us" but there is no visible way to contact them. Who are they, what is their contact information? I always wonder with a service like this how you would ever know if they aren't just reading your emails.

Maybe it means "you should be discreet to use us" ?

Or maybe so 4 separate courts can claim equal jurisdiction? Maybe if no single country possesses the full data of a single email I guess? Interesting thought experiment. Would be interested to hear the explanation of how intentionally increasing the number of relevant jurisdictions improves privacy.

Exclamation

It prevents someone getting the data by getting direct access to a data centre, but that's not the way that court orders usually work. For example Fastmail is an Australian company that uses a US data centre. It's under Australian jurisdiction.

I think it's probably just a gimmick. I think they'd be giving more details if it were otherwise.

(the ! icon was accidental and it doesn't look like I can remove it)
