VaporStream Stream Messaging is a secure and private electronic communications system for confidential and recordless messagingAn American company has invented technology to produce the 21st century equivalent vanishing e-mails. For a subscription of $ 39.99 for a year for individual + $5.00 additional for mobile access and for Enterprise $5.00 per user one-time setup charge, + basic charge $39.99 per year + $5.00 additional for mobile access , the New York firm VaporStream guarantees messages will disappear in a puff of virtual smoke after being read once.

The company’s bosses believe the service will be popular with high-profile businesses which are trying to safeguard corporate secrets. But they admit it could help those involved in shady dealings, who might have other reasons for not wanting a permanent record of their dealings

They use their usual e-mail addresses, but when routed through the self-destruct portal, the names of sender and receiver vanish and so does the message after read once. The message cannot be copied, forwarded, or edited, and there is no record of it anywhere on any computer.

Amit shah, the company’s co-founder , said: It is much like a telephone call, in the sense that it doesn’t leave a record. But it has the convenience of e-mail.
