Who Let the Carnivores Out?
Hushmail is a free e-mail service that offers transparent, end-to-end encryption of your e-mail without requiring correspondents to install and use complicated software.
ZipLip closely resembles Hushmail. You can set a time limit on the messages that you send, so that they expire-- and can't be retrieved, even from the recipients' systems-- after the specified date.
1on1 is a commercial service and uses dedicated software, but it offers an additional, cool feature: You can remotely retract and delete mail that you decide, after sending, you shouldn't have sent.
GNU Privacy Guard is free software that offers strong encryption services to Linux users; GNUPG is increasingly supported by Linux-based e-mail packages.
