It's true, I worked for a company that made an email client, which shipped
with a service, the client is for portable use (like hotmail) but not web

The program runs off the floppy, requires a passphrase, and stores all user
information in DES encrypted files on the floppy. It tries not to let
anything get swapped or written to the host computer.

The trouble was finding a market for it. They're still looking.

Nobody knows, nobody cares.

Perhaps someone should expose the truth of the general lack of email
security to the media, and let them scare everybody!
