"I suspect the folks that conceived email and the standards around it would be/are shaking their heads at the way things have gone."

Our gaster is well and truely flabbered! There is no security in email, never has been, and there never will be (there are secure-ish options that look kinda like email, but email they ain't). Hell, email isn't even guaranteed to be delivered! It's best effort, at best. Don't get me wrong, it's a great tool for what it IS good at ... but security and guaranteed delivery? Faggedaboudit.
