If we want to leave our stuff to the archeologists, we can store our  
own mails unencrypted. So do I (just because it is easier for me AND  
because I can keep my computers - hopefully - safe with other measures).

If we want to jam the sniffers from the secret services,(I wrote about  
this motivastion in the very beginning of this discussion!) then it is  
totally enough just to encrypt the mails end to end on their way.
