Mailpile is an e-mail client!
Mailpile is a search engine and a personal webmail server.
Mailpile is an easy way to encrypt your e-mail.
Mailpile is software you run yourself, on your own computer.

Mailpile is an effort to reclaim private communication on the Internet. A project to rescue our personal lives from the proprietary cloud and prevent our conversations from being strip-mined for corporate profit and government surveillance. Mailpile is taking e-mail back.

Born out of a belief that everyone deserves privacy and respect, Mailpile aims to provide an answer to the question: "How can I protect my privacy online?"

Mailpile is a big job, but we are making steady progress. Please feel welcome to read about our work so far, browse our source code or join our community. If you like what you see, maybe you can lend a hand!

Thanks and welcome,
    - Bjarni & the team
