This posting will self-destruct in 3...2...1...

For the paranoid type, there is a service that I found called VaporStream (https://www.vaporstream.com/ ). This is quite a controversial security service that claims it makes possible to send an email that leaves no record of their existence for confidentiality purposes. Messages sent using VaporStream can be viewed but not forwarded or copied. Also the sender and recipient information is not on the email (for protection of the identity!?!?) .

An individual subscription costs about $40 per year.

So, is this for "confidential messaging" or for "Spam availability to the masses"???

I also found this Self-Destruct email service. You would be surprised, but there are in fact several companies that offer the service. Are you willing to make a time-bomb of your email for pseudo-security reasons?... how about leaving a trace of your email on the service provider's servers??? can they truly guarantee that???
