Well, any service should be secure and private as long as you apply
good end-to-end encryption. PGP is a very common tool. With a virtual
server (or a real one) it's easy to run your own service where you
fully control its actions. There are several tutorials and guides
found on the web on how to achieve this. If you don't mind "getting
your hands dirty", you can adjust all the parts (MUA, MDA, MTA)
according to your needs. If this is not to your taste, just make
sure you have good transfer encryption in place. Keep in mind that
the biggest threat to your privacy and security is always the weakest
part of the chain in communication: If you mail to someone who is
running a compromised system, it's more or less "game over". Doing
some investigation on the web will reveal more truth. :-)
