Read the paper.

One of the principal reasons the NGO in the study avoided using crypto
was because they were concerned about appearing to outsiders as if
they were paranoids with something to hide.

Why do you want to sign everything?  Because you want to detect if
someone's tampered with your messages.  What are you, some kind of
paranoid who's worried about people screwing with your email?

Seriously.  Read the paper.  It's worthwhile.
