50,000 Beta Testers Already on Board!
Since first announcing StartMail, we've been amazed at the overwhelming response we've received. Over 50,000 privacy-loving people have signed up to participate in our launch as beta testers. (Thank you!)
We've closed the beta test enrollment period so we can move forward with the roll out, but don't worry if you missed it. You can still sign up to get first dibs on a paid StartMail account, which will be issued on a limited, first-come, first-served basis. Just leave your email address and check the "Advance Reservation" box at the bottom of this page.
And now, because we know you're eagerly waiting for StartMail to launch, here's where we are in the rollout plan.
Beta Testing is in Progress — and It's Going Great!
Starting this winter (2013/14), we've begun rolling out StartMail test accounts to our 50,000 pre-enrolled beta testers. We are fortunate to have one of the most passionate and committed group of privacy lovers anywhere participating in our beta launch. (We are so grateful to you all!)
Each beta tester was asked to fill out a survey about their use of email features. All surveys have been sent and now we're grouping each survey respondent into beta testing batches. Each beta tester will receive a free 90-day StartMail trial so they can test drive the program and give us feedback. Due to the high demand for StartMail and the large number of beta testers, we are rolling out the test accounts in batches over the next several months.
If you are a beta tester who has not yet received your account, we appreciate your continued patience, as it may take some time for all groups to receive their invitations. However, you can rest assured that the beta accounts are rolling out steadily and surely, and that yours will soon be on the way.
Official Launch of Paid StartMail Accounts (2014)
Members of the general public will be able to purchase StartMail accounts at our official launch. This will take place after the beta testing phase is fully complete and we've made all needed changes to StartMail based on beta user feedback.
How Much will StartMail Cost?
We are still working out the pricing details for StartMail. Once we complete the beta test, we'll determine how accurately we've projected our costs based on the level of traffic and usage, encryption computing resources required, customer support needs, bandwidth, and other pricing details. Although we can't give out a price just yet, we can guarantee that we will keep the price as low as possible.
Although Beta Testing Sign-up is Now Closed...
Based on the overwhelming demand for StartMail test accounts, we anticipate a similar rush when our paid service launches. Based on supply and demand, paid StartMail accounts may have to be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
To guarantee your spot in the queue, please leave your email address and check the "Advance Reservation" box below. By reserving an invitation, you will be given an advance option to purchase an account, but will be under no obligation to do so.

In Freedom and in Privacy,
The StartMail Team
