"Some recipients use services that don't support encryption" - I saw this message when sending an email. And it's not to someone who runs their own email. It's an email address from a large cable company. Disappointing?

What are those services - transport encryption or content encryption (like PGP)?

You could always encrypt the message contents, then phone them to provide the key phrase(s).  Still I'll just send the message using the encryption, it may encourage them to adopt more secure practices.      

This is even more or a worry; UK banks and their lack of implementing transport protocols

Tim,
I don't know. I was sending an email to a recipient using cox. It's not like it is a sketchy provider.
