For those who aren’t familiar with Lavabit, it was a service that offered encrypted email service that got cease-and-desist sort of letters form the government once the Edward Snowden event happened.  This was mostly a “we want those emails, give them to us!” email, which Lavabit eventually said “you want all?  you have none!”

Not really sure what they expected, though, when the US system is what caused the issue to begin with.
