    "The interface is pretty much simple. The safebox is where I got to create my password and where I save my log in credentials. I've tested my logs and digital footprint in this email service and found that this indeed does not keep my footprints. So I availed the expandable version through BTC. This worked so well indeed."

    "I use Hushmail because this allows me to create email aliases which allows me to have unique email addresses for things that I go. This is secured enough for me especially with their encryption feature."

    "As I do bitcoin transactions all the time, I use Tutanota to send and receive emails that are confidential. The UI is easy on the eyes. It's so easy to set up password encryptions on my mails. Been with this service for 1 year and I'm so satisfied already."

    "I like how runbox groups together the tools and command that I would want to use atm. I must say this shouldn't be for non-techy peeople because the itnerface can leave a noob daunting around the software. This could have been greater if there would be an available mobile app too."

    "Kolab borders on being a secure mail provider and a collab suite. The first thing I noticed about the UI is that this looks like an office suite. Kinda looks like a GDrive with all its available features. I've got a thing for Swiss-based software providers because I've proven them to be secure and not selling your data even to the government, so I trusted Kolab with my cryptocurrency tools and transaction saving. Mail doesn't come with encryption tho but I do hope they do have in the future."

    "I love that this has lots of encryption options. The mail design is nice. Although the font family or size could use some improvement because by default view, the font is a bit hard to read. However with the encryption activated, I cannot do email searching anymore. I don't know if this is a good thing but I'm living with this."
