What about the privacy of my messages ?

When you send an email to our service, we store it until we send it back to you. We don't store anything past that time, we don't need it! Emails are only sent back to the email address used to send an email. For example, if sends an email to, the email is stored for 5hours, then sent back to and deleted from our servers.

We don't store any list of email addresses, usage or anything else, except the emails for the time you decided.
