I do hope all providers will allow for end-to-end encryption, especially if if makes it hard for surveillance agencies to decrypt the e-mails. The NSA knows too much about all of us already, especially given the fact that e-mails can be acquired without search warrants.

Do you really think there’s no backdoor for the agencies?:wink:
I bet this move is more to prevent information theft by the casual hacker or malware writer…

Since the encryption is end-to-end I’m willing to bet malware devs could probably read e-mails with or without this encryption.
