The emergence of iRedMail and Roundcube are great offerings but end to end encrypted privacy remains an afterthought. Self-hosting remains quite complex for even average techies; combining out of country mail services with GPG may be the best approach for most folks, at least until more sophisticated encryption-based services emerge. The Indiegogo-funded Mailpile client may also interest people.
Fools ignore complexity. Pragmatists suffer it.
Some can avoid it. Geniuses remove it.
