Services

CounterMail keeps your online communications private and secure. Each email is uniquely encrypted before it leaves your computer. A CounterMail account lets you communicate in security with any other OpenPGP-compatible email user anywhere in the world. You can see how it works here. There is no known method which will allow a person or group to break OpenPGP:s encryption by cryptographic or computational means.

To be able to use our services you need to have Java and a web browser installed, most computers already have it installed, read more about this on our Support page.

We provide services both to the business community and to individual private users and organizations.

You can try it one week for free! Sign up here.

More about our storage prices.

Here are the reasons that our extra storage prices is higher than some other providers:
1. Our server have full disk encryption, which uses extra CPU and harddrive resources
2. Our server PGP-encrypts all unencrypted email inside your account, which uses extra CPU and harddrive resources
3. Our webmail have SSM-MITM protection which uses extra CPU resources on the server.
4. Your connection to our servers always passes through a tunnel to prevent IP-adddress leaking, this takes both CPU and bandwidth resourses.

A provider without these features will of course have lower prices, because they can take on much more customers per server. If you don't need the highest level of security, we would suggest using another lower-security provider.
