Hushmail wasnt as secure as they claimed. Their claim was that nobody would ever read your mail. Not even hushmail employees could view it. That wasnt the case. Recently they gave up 3 steroid dealers email transactions to the Canadian government. The reason I mention this is just to alert people that there is no such thing as absolute anonymity.
Furthermore I think most of these types of companies fail because they require software to be installed. If you own a business (Like myself) and you require people to send you sensitive data but its only once ina while you cant expect them to install software. We had a big issue with this. Recently we found the best solution. Private Information Exchange (im sure there are many others like this, this just happens to be the one we use) offers a simple solution. You initiate a request for info which is sent via email. However, the recipient gets the email with a link. they click the link and are asked for the info. The info isnt emailed back, its sent back to the requestor via SSL to their private information exchange account. The requestor simply gets an email that the request has been fulfilled. They log in and can see the info. If you want to find out more about it the website is Private information exchange

No system is fool proof, but this seems to be the most efficient that we have found.
