As for the “Mail part, it uses an italicized version of the same font, and a calm gray shade. Sometimes the inscription has a thin orange underline.

The Hushmail emblem in a solid black keyhole, set on a white background and enclosed into a diagonally oriented orange oval frame. And that is it. Very simple, light, yet memorable and recognizable logo with the color palette evoking a sense of confidence and energy.
