Where to get a free Swiss .ch email address?

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know of a site where I could get a free Swiss email address which would end with .ch or something similar?

Many Thanks!

Bumping an old thread to share two more Swiss email providers which are on top of the list for digital rights.

https://protonmail.com/ @protonmail.ch email available
https://bitmessage.ch/ @bitmessage.ch email available

Re: Where to get a free Swiss .ch email address?

Heard about a new email service based out of Switzerland on radio this morning, similar to protonmail is now available (20GB free, two step security, calendar, mobile app) but I don't think I heard the domain accurately

I thought it was ikme but I couldn't find it. Idea was being promoted to disengage from google

Interested to know what would constitute "similar".


Does anyone know if gmail is still the only one with blocked geo-location, i.e. no-one can use the email headers to find out from where the email was sent?

Is that an option in gmail?

Doesn't apply to any recent emails I received from gmail, they have the original sender IP address in them.

None of the above - I'm the recipient of the (g)mail, not the sender!
