A bit off topic but related I think...

I've started using gpg to encrypt org-mode entries and it's amazing. I then
started to realize that I wasn't paying enough attention to security of my
own sensitive data. Scan of documents spread around without encryption
(also looking for a pragmatic way to encrypt whole files in OSX) and
specially email of sensitive data and documents.

I've then found out about S/MIME? I don't see it as widespread, I only
found geeky tutorials (some are quite comprehesive) but nothing really
mainstream. I also found a bit of material talking about encryption of
emails with gpg.

Do you guys ever encrypt your emails? I must say I never did, but it
doesn't sound bad for sensitive data, and if you have a business and or
need to deal with services that require your business or personal documents
(or any other sensitive data for that matter) I think that it could be a
good choice.

What do you think?

- Marcelo.
