Encrypted Email Venture Exceeds Crowdsourced Funding Goals

MailPile, an open-source email client that will offer "user-friendly encryption", has smashed its $100,000 target for funding on Indiegogo with two weeks left to run on its campaign.

The company will be established in Iceland, which offers fast transatlantic internet links, but without the regulatory demands imposed upon companies by the US or European Union.

The packages range from $1 for supporters to $16,384 for "venture communists", although none of these packages (out of two) has yet been claimed. "If you get this perk, we will hire an Android application developer to start binding Mailpile into a native app as soon as Mailpile's outward facing APIs are stable."
