Interesting how some here cited outlook.com as the place to go for more secure messaging...

Quoting Mortyman (Thread starter):
Company says it is legally compelled to comply

Indeed so, that's why the market will favor jurisdictions that are not compelled to comply.

Inspiration, move me brightly!

Guilty as charged. I stand corrected...

Not at all surprising though. Internet and privacy really can't be in the same sentence anymore.

I like how Microsoft is singled out for this despite the fact that they probably had zero choice in the matter and basically every other company probably did the same thing.
but no, Microsoft is evil

Since Telcos apparently charge the US Government for wiretaps, can we assume that Microsoft will be doing the same when granting access to encrypted data?

Quoting Mortyman (Thread starter):
Your privacy is our priority

What a joke. Kudos to ISP owner Mr Pete Ashdown who actually seems to do so.

If you want secure communications got to use one time pads.
