Re: top 5 safest and most secure email providers ?
There is no such as secure email providers. Why do you think, companies like Google, spend a lot of money to maintain "free" email servers? But if you want one, you need search for email providers in more democratic countries, like (no, not USA, Iran, China, Russia and most EU countries) Iceland and Sweden.
said by Velnias:For the truckloads of ad revenues it gives them, which most certainly far exceeds the amount of money necessary to maintain the service.

The service is essenitally paid for through advertising. No such thing as "free".
That doesn't stop me from using AdBlock Plus though!
Back on the original topic: there is no such thing as 100% secure email unless the message is encrypted by the original sender and then decrypted by the intended recipient. The mail provider has not much to do with it.
All the mail provider can really do is ensure security of the communication between your computer and their servers (ie: SSL encryption) and keep their servers and web access free of exploits that would enable hackers to gain access to your inbox. Anything more than that is strictly the end-user's responsibility.
