Though the big email providers provide encryption, they are liable by United Law to produce the details of a particular user including emails on production of warrant.
So what does a user who values his/her privacy and anonymity do? We bring out a list of top quality email service providers who will provide you anonymity as well as privacy. All providers listed below are operating outside the US hence the US law is not binding on them. Furthermore all of them support SMTP TLS.

Confidant Mail is a new service in development. Confidant Mail is an open-source non-SMTP cryptographic email system optimized for large file attachments. It is a secure and spam-resistant alternative to regular email and online file drop services. It uses GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) for content encryption and authentication, and TLS 1.2 with ephemeral keys for transport encryption.
You can choose any of the above service for your private and anonymous email needs.
Remember, do not trust any service, do encrypt all your communications.
