So far it's the best option for private, secure email. You'll have to do some 
reading about it (and compare with other email services) to know why. Either 
you want end-to-end encryption, and other privacy/security features, or you 
don't (yet) care that much. 

My only other option seems to be to roll my own (that is, host my own email 
server on my own machine). I know of several people who do that (such as 
Richard Stallman, if I recall), but it's a pain in the behind, and a lot of 
work just to host your own email accounts with your own domain, etc. 

I will try to make some enquiries about what is involved, if anybody else 
really wants to know. So far, I've just been doing a lot of reading, and it 
seems a little too much trouble. In lieu of that kind of hassle, then, there 
is ProtonMail.
