    ChainMail and Sigaba are among the companies promoting encryption technology designed to render any captured e-mail meaningless to third parties. Meanwhile, developers like Privada and Zero-Knowledge offer anonymity to both sender and recipient, so a third party has no idea whose e-mail it is reading. In most cases, you need to rely on your Internet service provider to implement this level of technology, which keeps private your e-mail--right down to its address.
