ShazzleMail’s Server-Less Private Email Application Renders Email Metadata Sending Trends and Patterns Nearly Useless

Share Article

ShazzleMail today announced a successful enhancement of their private email application that significantly reduces the exposure of metadata.


'ShazzleMail’s architecture avoids the exposure of a central server by delivering email directly from the sender’s smartphone,' says Cliff Boyle, CEO of ShazzleMail.

Email usually travels a client/server route. Standard email can be made secure through encryption. However, the metadata used to send an email is not encrypted, but instead received and stored on a central server complete with information of the sender, receiver, time of transmission and other information on the record.

“The concentration of this information at a central point makes it easy for the metadata to be served up to the NSA or others who can discern enough detail in the sending patterns to destroy any notion of privacy,” says Cliff Boyle, CEO of ShazzleMail. “ShazzleMail’s architecture avoids the exposure of a central server by delivering mail directly from the sender’s smartphone (or other device). The system can employ as many mail servers as there are users, making it virtually impossible to track,” says Mr. Boyle.

In the ShazzleMail application, emails are sent encrypted through randomly selected relays, further obfuscating any sending patterns. “Even if snippets of metadata were collected by the NSA or others from these diffuse sources, they would not be able to establish any patterns or information from the random message flow, allowing state-of-the-art privacy,” says Mr. Boyle.

About ShazzleMail

ShazzleMail is a private email application for iOS and Android devices. ShazzleMail can also be used on PCs or Mac with ShazzleConnect and either a POP3/SMTP email proxy or Microsoft Outlook via the ShazzleMail Add-In. ShazzleMail turns a smartphone into a mail server by creating a direct connection from sender to receiver, bypassing outside hosts and cloud services to insure privacy and security. Since ShazzleMail merely connects sender and receiver and does not store or forward any messages it has no access to the contents of an email and therefore cannot read or mine any data. Its patent pending technology is unique in the marketplace and offers significantly greater privacy than webmail. ShazzleMail is free for consumers. ShazzleMail Pro is a fee service for commercial entities. To learn more, visit
