    Proton Mail vs StartMail opinions
    Most users think Proton Mail is a great alternative to StartMail.
    JohnFastman

    Protonmail is probably the best alternative to Startmail at the moment. Both services are fairly bare-bones in terms of functionality, but both also offer end-to-end encryption using the tried and tested PGP standard (unlike Gmail, Outlook.com, Yahoo). Consider Tutanota also, which is very good for the same reason/purpose.

    Tutanota vs StartMail opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments
    JohnFastman

    As with Protonmail, Tutanota is a good alternative to StartMail. All of these services might not be as feature-rich as Gmail and its kin, but unlike those, they offer end-to-end PGP-based encryption and enable truly private emailing. That's worth a lot in an age when intelligence agencies simply save all the emails travelling through the web in plain text (such as Gmail, Outlook and Yahoo offer).

    mailbox.org vs StartMail opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments
    JohnFastman

    Mailbox.org is a good StartMail replacement because it offers PGP-based encryption (you choose if you want them to handle your private keys or not), and it comes with Calendar and Contacts features that are better than StartMail's. But you have to pay a little to use it. A closer 1-for-1 replacement for Startmail in terms of functionality might be Protonmail, but it has fewer features than Mailbox.org.

    Mailfence is the only secure email solution listed here that offers interoperability with any other openPGP solution. In addition, Mailfence is much more than just secure email, Mailfence is an entire suite with Calendar, Docs, Contacts and presence all included. A true alternative to Google Apps suite
