Private mail with Kolab Now


Kolab Now offers an intriguing option for users who want to keep their email safe both from government agents and from corporations that profit from exploiting user information. The goal of Kolab Now is to protect your data from snooping and post-processing as it resides on the server. The service is not intended to provide total anonymity in transit, and, of course, it cannot control what happens to your outgoing message once it reaches its destination.
