 What About E-mail Security?

"One mode of communicating over the Internet, however, is done shockingly, overwhelmingly in the clear. I'm talking about e-mail. It doesn't have to be this way, though. With all the excitement about SPF and other mail authentication methods, it struck me that people haven't done even the base work to secure their communications--myself included. If one can eavesdrop on communications, one can spoof those communications. In my mind, authentication schemes are going to be of dubious value without an attendant amount of effort spent securing the line as well."
