I tried Tutanova, but it was lacking and I didn't like the domain name for my e-mail. I also don't think their end-to-end encryption is all that practical since you have to somehow give the receipient a password. You also have to trust them to hold your "key". I think the PGP method is better, although I do like how Tutanota encrypts the subject line.
I recently bought an account from Kolab Now (it's around $5/month). Their servers are in Switzerland where they have some of the strongest privacy laws; they have "libertymail.net" as one of the e-mail domain options. I know this doesn't give you pure privacy since e-mail is inherently insecure (unless the entire message is encrypted), but I was tired of giving Google and the NSA an easy "smorgasboard" of personal information. To me it's a minor cost and it's very functional.
I've recently started playing around with PGP encryption and it's relatively simple to set up (on one machine) but it's not useful if no one else uses it. I think everyone here should use PGP; it's a good way to protest surveillance.
Here's a good tutorial for those unfamiliar: https://ssd.eff.org/en/module/how-use-pgp-windows
I'd really like to use it more, so if if you have it set-up, send me an encrypted e-mail!: email@example.com
