Power Privacy, a comprehensive privacy site featuring some of the most cutting-edge, up to date information about online privacy issues available anywhere, tested our services and published a detailed review of Neomailbox on August 5th, 2006, according us a "Power Privacy Recommended" rating.
Excerpts from their review:
Neomailbox embraces a veritable alphabet soup of leading security standards, such as SSL, OpenPGP encryption [...] hardware token authentication and access via IMAP, POP and SMTP.
Another point of technical distinction is the fact Neomailbox's services all run on OpenBSD servers, recognized as the most secure operating system available. The company has used an all-OpenBSD server infrastructure since its launch in 2003, with backup servers in hot standby in the event of failures.
Emails to support are answered promptly and politely. We received polite, gentle guidance via email to help us around our own ham-handed configuration errors; the service also provides 24/7 emergency support through its web control panel for service or account issues that need immediate attention.
Service appears run by principled, committed privacy activists who know their IP technology.
Neomailbox is an important link in the chain of private personal computing. For the same reasons that you keep your credit card in your wallet or put envelopes around your letters, it's only prudent to protect your Internet communications. For those of us who enjoy the functionality and convenience of traditional mail clients, Neomailbox offers real features, performance and value.
A review at Strike The Root, the Internet's premier journal of liberty, compares various Anonymous / Secure E-Mail services in the August 10, 2005 edition of the column The Invisible Pirate, and has some nice things to say about us:
NeoMailbox is the bargain of the bunch for onshore or offshore servers.
It offers everything: lots of storage, SSL, IMAP / POP / SMTP access, web mail, OpenPGP encryption (with a free plug-in), spam ID, antivirus, unlimited disposable aliases, hardware token authentication, and a 10% discount for paying with E-gold or GoldMoney.
In addition, the 1 GB offshore server package not only includes secure (SSL) anonymous surfing, it is also the least expensive package of the bunch, on a $/MB basis.
If you want it all, this deal is tough to beat.
