I've gotten several messages this week about a new free Web-based email service called HushMail that offers secure, 1024-bit encryption in certain situations. HushMail offers the ultimate in privacy when both the sender and receiver are using the service, because a feature called "Public Key Cryptosystem with Roaming User Capability" is enabled that ensures that the only people who can read your HushMail are the people that you write to. But HushMail users can access their accounts from any computer that has a Web browser and Internet access, anywhere in the world, like any other Web-based email service.
HushMail is catering to the security conscious, and on that note it's worth a look. For more information, please visit the HushMail Web site
