Why does this need to be a "service?"

Why not just write the e-mail in your current e-mail client and then store the draft in its own folder?

People have been doing that for centuries. They'd write a letter to themselves and then store it in a box somewhere instead of sending it.

Some people took it a step farther and would write the letter, and then burn it if they were angry. Very cathartic.






This was my first response, too. Just email yourself with subject "diary", then the next day, reply to that email, etc. You can even have multi-user versions by sending it to someone(s) else and everyone just replies all. If you self-host your email then it's fairly secure, and has all of the advantages but none of the disadvantages.
