Welcome to your new email account!

We know you are busy making trouble and changing the world…(注:说实在的,第一次读到这句话的时候把我逗乐了) but can save yourself and us a lot of trouble by reading this email.

First steps

Visit from there, you can change your password, add email aliases, set up email filters, change your quota, and request help.

We automatically destroy the information you gave us as part of your account request. You should consider removing any identifying information from your account settings, such as your name, birthday, secret question, and alternate email. However, if you forget your password and this information is not set (or you’ve forgotten what you stored, or the alternate email is no longer accessible), then you will lose access to your account.

Important things to know

(1) Protect your password

The Internet is crawling with people trying to steal your email account. At some point, you will probably receive a fraudulent email from someone pretending to be These emails will claim that you must perform some action in order to keep your account.

. Never give your password to anyone, especially someone claiming to be

. Never trust that the “From” address of an email is from who it says, because this can be forged easily.

. Web links in email messages are often fraudulent. To be safe, you should retype the link rather than clicking on it. Also, be careful about misspellings, like instead of

(2) Automatic deletion of messages in some folders

Messages in some folders are automatically deleted after a certain number of days:

. Trash: deleted after 21 days.
. Spam: deleted after 7 days.
. Sent: deleted after 120 days.

(3) Quota

For many reasons, we do not provide much storage space for email. If you need more space, consider downloading your email using a mail client or increasing your quota by visiting More information on this can be found at

(4) Use an email client

Although the web-based interface does not have many features, you can use your email account with a feature-rich desktop application designed specifically to handle your email.

Riseup recommends Thunderbird, a free and open source mail client:

Thunderbird will automatically configure itself correctly if you just give it your email address and password.

What is special about email

Your email account is a wonderful thing. Although we don’t provide as much storage quota as surveillance-funded corporate email providers, email has many unusual features:

(1) We encrypt traffic whenever possible.

When you send email from to another secure email provider, the email is encrypted for its entire journey. (see for more info)

(2) We don’t disclose your location to email recipients.

When you send email with, your internet address (IP address) is not embedded in the email(注:国内的邮件服务商普遍比较脑残,喜欢把发件人的 IP,邮件软件等信息放到 Headers 中,示例内容见本文末尾.). With corporate email providers, anyone who receives your email can figure out your approximate physical location from the internet address included in the email.

(3) We don’t log your internet address.

Our commitment is to keep as little data on you as we can. Unlike corporate providers, we do not log internet addresses of anyone using services, including email.

Mutual aid

There is no such thing as free email. Services like gmail, hotmail, and yahoo make their money from surveillance: they build a profile on your behavior and your desires and then bombard you with advertising specifically targeted to you. (注:其实很多服务也是这样的道理。他们看似提供免费的服务,实则是以 “你” 作为代价的。记得看到过一个比较经典的评论:如果他们不是在向你出售他们的服务,就是在出售你.) is different. This service is a labor of love by activists like you committed to building movement-run and secure alternative infrastructure.

The email service takes a lot of time and money to keep running, and is funded entirely by small donations from its users. Please do your part and contribute today at

In solidarity, The Riseup Collective
