Dead Man's Switch
What's the gist?
Dead Man's Switch is provided without any guarantees of
anything, not even that it will do its job properly. If you
want your emails to remain private, or to not be sent before your actual death,
or anything else, please don't use this service. I provide it for free in case
anyone finds it useful, and that's pretty much the extent of its use case.
If you have any doubts, please use an alternate service.
