Disk Encryption
Notes

2014-05-28: TrueCrypt currently has security issues and is not recommended.

If you’re running GNU/Linux, dm-crypt with LUKS is the recommended encryption option.

Gentoo GNU/Linux maintains a guide for dm-crypt with LUKS.

Arch GNU/Linux maintains a guide to dm-crypt with LUKS. Also useable for Parabola GNU/Linux.

A beginner’s guide to running your own mail server is available here: “NSA-proof your e-mail in 2 hours”.

What is an MTA?

“Within Internet message handling services (MHS), a message transfer agent or mail transfer agent (MTA) or mail relay is software that transfers electronic mail messages from one computer to another using a client–server application architecture. An MTA implements both the client (sending) and server (receiving) portions of the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol.

The terms mail server, mail exchanger, and MX host may also refer to a computer performing the MTA function. The Domain Name System (DNS) associates a mail server to a domain with mail exchanger (MX) resource records containing the domain name of a host providing MTA services.”

Operating Systems
Notes

Apple, Google, and Microsoft are a part of PRISM. Their proprietary operating systems cannot be trusted to safeguard your personal information from the NSA.

This leaves us with two free alternatives: GNU/Linux and BSD.

GNU/Linux has a much larger community to help you with the transition. It's recommended that you begin your explorations by looking for a GNU/Linux distribution that suits your needs.

Why not Ubuntu? Ubuntu is a poor choice because it contains spyware.
