Hello,
various methods exist for e-mail encryption. Yet, what use of them if the encryption is not both-sided?
As an ordinary user, I have never received an encrypted email or had a strong compelling reason to do so. Under email I consider here Gmail service. I am sure that majority of users are of similar thinking.
E-mail encryption makes sense only if contacts share their keys. I can do that with a couple of friends (given that they are willing to install the software and keys and actually use ecrypted option instead of unecrypted), but that is rather exception than rule.
So in my view e-mail will remain unencrypted form of communicating, given that it is impossible to mass-enforce e-mail encryption - as far as mainstream is concerned.
Any thoughts on this?

(I have little concern over the NSA and assorted alpha-bet agencies reading my e-mails, anyway....; but, certainly encryption can not be one-sided; but, get your friends to use the browser add-on if it concerns you)
