You're part of the revolution, baby! - the revolution that started in the 1960's with the creation of the first e-mail systems.
Having not spent a dime on webmail for the last decade, you've realized that the telegraph operators of the world have been keeping copies, and it's time to change that. Thanks for helping us help you!
You wish us the best of luck and support our efforts. In return you get access to Mailpile's online source code and the warm, fuzzy feeling of knowing you supported something worthwhile.
You care about our mission and applaud our attempt to use modern mathematics to secure peoples' e-mail. You become an official member of the Mailpile Community, which means you will have a say in how Mailpile develops in the future. We are working for you. Unless you choose to remain anonymous, your name will be listed on the project's official thank-you page.
You get so much e-mail you're convinced there must be an entire data center dedicated to processing your inbox in the cloud. Except it still all fits on a 32GB USB stick... maybe you just need Mailpile? You get all the previous perks, plus if this perk turns out to be popular, we will make sure there is a super compact, no-frills theme available for the info-junkies in the crowd.
With a brain the size of a planet, how could you not support this project? In addition to the above perks, if over 200 androids sign up, we'll make sure there is a fjord-themed background shipped with the Mailpile Alpha.
You support your ideals with actions and expect us to do the same. In addition to us making you a Community Member, one of our actions will be to mail you a postcard from Iceland, personally thanking you for your support. In addition to your name on the thank-you page, you will be able to specify a web-site URL which we will link to.
You value the ability to hack and tweak and fully control your computing environment, your e-mail included. You will get all the benefits from above, plus we will put your postcard in a nice thick envelope so the government can't read it. And we'll throw in some stickers.
We know, we know. You want a t-shirt. Everybody loves t-shirts. So, here's the deal: you support us with $256, we'll send you an awesome exclusive t-shirt AND all of the above perks AND you will get an awesome mail client as well!

Not only do you have 8 bits, you also have parity! So, you want a t-shirt AND some Icelandic dried fish? Okay, okay. We'll send you some. Also, if we reach the USB distribution stretch goal, we'll send you a USB stick that runs Mailpile!

So, you're a spook, eh? We understand that as an underfunded intelligence agency, you need help securing your e-mail. We can help. We'll give you the above perks, feature you prominently in our credits and send you a reasonably sized volcanic rock that you can throw through your own window. Spy agencies should be glass houses, right?

Our guess is, if supporting Mailpile is worth $2048 to you, then you probably move a lot of e-mail and probably not just your own. The more people go for this perk, the higher we will prioritize the multi-user stretch goal when we update our road-map after the alpha release. In addition, our designer will make a custom theme just for you. You will be prominently featured in our credits and of course receive all the previous perks!

In addition to the previous perks you and your logo will be the most prominently featured in our credits. You also get a custom feature / design theme per your specs (see the FAQ for some fine print). In addition, if you fly to Iceland we'll meet with you to discuss the implementation and then take you on a road trip through the Icelandic countryside, taste fermented shark and our traditional alcohol Brennivín, whilst we talking tech, politics and security.

Same perks as the Icelandophile except you buy a flight to Iceland for New Years and we'll take care of everything else: a roof over your head, volcanos, bonfires, Icelandic Pirates, fireworks and PGP key signing. It's exactly as dangerous as it sounds, but don't worry, we'll take good care of you.

As a road-raging venture communist you're going to want to access your Mailpile directly from your mobile with no questions asked. If you get this perk, we will hire an Android application developer to start binding Mailpile into a native app as soon as Mailpile's outward facing APIs are stable.
