No. There is a standard called OpenPGP already and this service is not
relevant in any way.

See the how it works page[1]. They can't and don't change how email,
i.e. SMTP works. They just send the receiver a link to their web service
and both their client and recipient use a browser to do their
"emailing". The world is full of services like that.

GnuPG and other OpenPGP compliant software sign and / or encrypt the
/contents of email/.
