    Happily I encrypt all my mails, but still...

    When asked if Safe-mail has received court orders issued by an Israeli court on behalf of a non-Israeli law enforcement agency, such as the FBI, Ofir replied with a short “Yes.” My followup email, asking if Safe-mail has the ability to decrypt information without a user’s key, went unanswered.

    No, there isn't but if only 10% of the population would be using secure communication, say a combination of strong encryption and steganography, the whole surveillance system would come crashing down. There simple isn't enough landmass on this planet to house the computer farms required to deal with the "problem".
