It seems that Yahoo is censoring my forwarded mail. They won’t let me share your page with my friends. Is there another way I can get your message out?
Our reply: Dan, is it time to leave the outdated Big Brother platform called Yahoo? AOL is also a problem. These platforms do not permit free speech and yours is being curtailed. But what do you expect when you want your email for free? They have to sell something to make money – so they read and scan your emails and harvest your personal data and sell to advertisers and others.
We are able to provide AIM Patriots with private, secure email boxes through Leader Technologies, but it will cost $10 a month. Right now we do it for folks upon request. We have to be paid the old fashioned way – a check through the mail. Eventually we will streamline this process to make it easier to sign up and pay, but for now, early adopters follow these instructions:
Send a check to Leader Technologies for $120 for the annual fee. Leader will not read your emails or harvest your personal data. You know how patriot Michael McKibben feels about privacy on the internet!
It’s a two-fer. You get the privacy you deserve. Plus the added bonus of helping out a great patriot Michael McKibben! Be a LEADER!
Anytime you communicate with another person holding a Leader email account, the correspondence does not leave the internal system so this provides you with even better privacy. If two or more of you are on the Leader Private Email system, all of your emails between you stay on the leader server and do not enter the Internet.
Make sure to share this info with friends and family who are looking for this security. If you have questions, please contact AIM@Leader.com.
We think this is a great way to give Michael McKibben and Leader Technologies financial support for the marvelous research they are doing, while providing you with a better email platform. What a great gift to give (birthday, holidays, special occasion) for patriots concerned about internet privacy.
Be the Patriot LEADER that you are and get your whole team on the LEADER board!

Our Reply: Of course you don’t have to give up your Yahoo account, Connie. You can keep those treasured letters in your Yahoo account for as long as Yahoo is around.Then open a second box at leader.com and over time your friends will catch on — just like moving from a physical location and address. People will move with you.
But if you want to transfer them, Mike says that you might check to see if Yahoo has a backup/archive feature that will prepare some sort of archive zip file with your messages in *.eml format. That is a universal archiving format. You needs to first download that archive to your computer.
