(Privacy aware) non-US email providers
10 Aug 2013
Lavabit was taken down a few days ago in an attempt to stop government snooping on their customers.
This was an admirable move by Lavabit, but resulted in me needing to find a new email host.
(You can always reach me on the mail on my contacts page which I host myself. Lavabit was used for an organisation I am running which I do not have the time to be email admin for).

Did I miss something? Comment!
Other alternatives include hosting your own email address and not trusting third parties, this puts the security in your own hands, which can be both a good and a bad thing.
(and remember, do not rely on Hushmail!)
