At one point, I signed all my messages.. but it was tiresome trying to explain the "gibberish" to family and friends.

Nobody ever sent me super secret important encrypted emails either..

Do you work for the government? no? then you don't need such privacy.. just encrypt files using OpenSSL ..or another tool, whatever the recipient prefers even.
