I understand that.
The thing is, if you have to exchange confidential information and you
go through the trouble of making it secure, why not add some additional
effort and exchange such information in a different way. Email by its
very nature can never be considered secure. Try an encrypted filesystem
on a USB stick handed over in person, or by certified mail. Distribute
the key seperately.
I would think that the confidentiality you speak of allows the extra
effort to keep it that way. If not then I guess it's more a "sorta
confidential", or "keeping up the appearance of confidentiality but
isn't really, as long as "they" are happy". :-)
