Submission + - PayPal freezes MailPile's account (mailpile.is) 1

rysiek writes: Remember MailPile the privacy-focused, community-funded FOSS webmail project with built-in GPG support? The good news is, the funding campaign is a success, with $135k raised (the goal was $100k). The bad news is, PayPal froze MailPile's account, along with $45k that was on it, and will not un-freeze it until MailPile team provides "an itemized budget and your development goal dates for your project" . One of the team members also noted: "Communications with PayPal have implied that they would use any excuse available to them to delay delivering as much of our cash as possible for as long as possible.". PayPal doesn't have a great track record as far as fund freezing is concerned — maybe it's high time to stop using PayPal?

Submission + - New privacy oriented FOSS web-mail: Mailpile

Juggler writes: Mailpile, a new Free Software project out of Iceland, launched at the #OHM2013 hacker festival in Holland today. The talk's brief demo garnered rounds of applause and was followed by the launch of an Indiegogo campaign which, if funded, will allow them work full time on building a modern e-mail/web-mail client. The team's main goals are to address the usability issues that prevent non-technical folks from taking advantage of secure e-mail today, bring new life to FOSS e-mail development and provide a realistic alternative to keeping e-mail in the cloud.
