    Are we good with this definition for zero-knowledge email systems?

    I'm making some corrections to the Compare - Encrypted Email Service Providers

    I'm also a bit puzzled about some of the zero knowledge claims since it seems that zero knowledge should require encrypted metadata.

    If zero knowledge should require encrypted metadata why does the chart show the half shaded circle for encrypted metadata while the zero knowledge shows a green check.

    Even though the word "should" is used,there seems to be some doubt.
