In case a paid mail service provider is acceptable, I have good experience of Lux Scientiae. I have no connection with the company other than as a customer.

Between Hushmail and Lavabit I will go with Hushmail and this is why:
Quote:
On a final note, the Lavabit e-mail servers do record the IP address used to send an outgoing message in the header of an outgoing e-mail. Because of this, it is possible for the recipient of a message to identify what IP was used to send a message. We record this information in the message header so that law enforcement officials in possession of a message that violates the law can identify the original sender. Lavabit does not retain this information.
That's from Lavabit privacy policy.

Encrypted E-Mail Company Hushmail Spills to Feds | Threat Level | Wired.com

Quote:
Hushmail, a longtime provider of encrypted web-based email, markets itself by saying that "not even a Hushmail employee with access to our servers can read your encrypted e-mail, since each message is uniquely encoded before it leaves your computer."

But it turns out that statement seems not to apply to individuals targeted by government agencies that are able to convince a Canadian court to serve a court order on the company.
Personally, I am now with Autistici/Inventati; they are an Italian collective which provides email addresses, blog and web hosting, and other communications-related services to non-commercial users free-of-charge and while retaining minimal server logs.

Quote:
A/I was born more than 10 years ago when individuals and collectives dealing in technology, privacy, cyber rights and political activism met in Italy. Our fundamental aim is to provide free communication tools on a wide basis, while pushing people to choose free rather than commercial communication modes. We would like to arouse people's awareness about the need to protect their privacy and to escape the looting which is indiscriminately perpetrated by governments and corporations alike on both data and personalities.

We try to accomplish all this by offering internet services (web sites, e-mail, mailing lists, chat, instant messaging, anonymous remailing, blogs, newsletters, and more) both to individuals and collective projects who agree to our same aims and sharing our ideals, and use our best skills and knowledge to defend our users' privacy.

Standing outside the commercial attitude of paid services and web spaces, we happily welcome those unresting towards cultural and media censorship, towards the globalized imaginery that is prepared, packed and sold to us day after day.
