Enigmail is an extension to the mail client of Mozilla / Netscape and Thunderbird which allows users to access the authentication and encryption features provided by the popular GnuPG software (see screenshots). Enigmail is open source and dually-licensed under the GNU General Public License and the Mozilla Public License.
Having tried e-mail encryption of many flavors over the years, this sounds like it might just work. Integration has always been the killer. Either the system used a standard encryption tool such as PGP or now GPG, or it used a built-in system that didn't necessarily play nicely with others.
Enigmail seems to solve both of those problems.
Now, if only I could find a GUI mailer that could happily coexist with mutt (and, more importantly, my client-side Maildir e-mail storage).
