Thanks Pedro, actually I understand cryptography and I agree with you.
Sonebody replied to me off-list and wrote me about ProtonMail
<https://protonmail.ch/>, actually they are doing exactly what I wanted (I
think), so maybe I will try to cooperate with them and/or use their open
source source code. Anyway thanks for the feedback!

Uri.
