I am really angry over this.

    Just a week back I created my email account with Lavabit in order

even putted it as my official email id for some sites, I newly created

shutted down.

    Remember when word circulated that Edward Snowden was using
Lavabit, an email service that purports to provide better privacy and
security for users than popular web-based free services like Gmail?
Lavabit's owner has shut down service, with a mysterious message
posted on the lavabit.com home page today. The full message is here on
