Things are looking bad. Lavabit is out. Fastmail is paid only. Nothing 
wrong with paid, only it beats the anonymity. Vmail.me has closed the 
gates. And it has big problems anyway: gmail bounces all my emails. 
Openmailbox has closed its gates. The system works well. The 
registration is off. Tormail is shutdown and unreachable.

Even large guys changed lately. Lycos imposes a SMS ID with only a 
handful of countries in its list. Gmail imposes the SMS, even if their 
list is far greater. Gmx and Mail refuse account creation. They say it's 
tech problems, but it looks like Tor allergy. And Mail.com is a mask for 
more services. Hushmail shows only paid plans. Cyber-rights mask gave me 
access, but hushmail said it's suspended and gave me a chance to pay.
