This is not a task for GnuPG.  This is a task for an encrypted file
system.  On OS X, look into using encrypted home directories (System
Preferences-->Security).  On Windows, I've found TrueCrypt to be a
pretty good solution.  On Linux, look into cryptoloop.

It does.  You need your IMAP server to run the encrypted file system.
