ziplip secure services
Thank you for using ZipLip's free secure mail service. We appreciate your patronage and wish to inform you that we will be discontinuing our service on June 30th, 2005. For various reasons, including new U.S. legislation which significantly impacts the individual's privacy rights, ZipLip is no longer able to provide its free secure email services with any reasonable assurance of privacy and security, particularly in the context of a hosted service. We will revisit the service issue when our legislature reinstates our privacy rights.
Please make the necessary arrangements to use another Webmail service before June 30th. We are unable to offer any data migration services. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused.

So what does this mean for the other web based email services? I can open and use accounts with resist and riseup, but I am wondering if it is worth it. I also wonder what this ultimately means for all web based email services.
