Looks like your link might be broken - here's a working one:

I guess if they are outside the US then it makes it harder to be shut down the way Lavabit was.

Re: Snowden-inspired crypto-email service Lavaboom launches

The following article is a update on crypto email.

 

(DIME for your TOP SECRET thoughts? Son of Snowden's crypto-chatter client here soon)

 

By Darren Pauli,

 

 

DefCon Lavabit founder Ladar Levison will within six months carve out a military-grade email service from the ashes of Ed Snowden's favourite email client.

As many of you will remember, Levison killed the service to prevent his clients' information from getting into the clutches of the Federal Bureau of Investigations.

 

The popular thorn in the side of the US spy apparatus updated the 2,000-strong audience of security hacks and privacy pundits on the Dark Mail project announced late last year.

Levison shot to fame in tech circles after he responded to a FBI demand for access to the private SSL certificates used to encrypt all traffic on Lavabit by printing the keys on reams of paper in a 4-point font described by one prosecutor as "largely illegible".
