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". :-)

Best regards,
