They say they encrypt messages upon receipt before saving to disk (which sounds silly, considering the attacker would be more likely to just sniff the inbound network traffic rather than try gaining access to the disk of the recipient server, and also because the recipient server must have saved the encryption key in order to perform the encryption upon receipt).  And if you want more information, there's a link to, which is a broken link for obvious reasons.
