SSL will only go so far, and even that can have weaknesses.
With Snowden's leaks on how the UK and US governments intercept email and voice communications, and how the major email ISPs work in secret to provide access to your email, it has become more important than ever before to protect your data.
Encryption will not prevent hackers, or backdoor access to your emails, but what it does provide is an email full of seemingly random letters and numbers. This is completely useless to anyone apart from the key holder.
If you receive comercially sensitive information, or you are a political activist, your emails could prove disastrous in the wrong hands, but encrypted messaging would mean that your emails and attachments are unreadable to everyone but yourself.
If your business dealt with sensitive, classified or controversial information, the last thing you will want is to have to clean up after a data breach.
You may have an amazing data security policy - that's great, but it should never be thought of as an 'if we have a breach', but a 'when we have a breach'
Encrypting your email data before it gets delivered to your mailbox means that in the unlucky event that your security is compromised, and your data is copied, you can rest assured that it is useless to the attackers.
For personal email, keeping your day to day emails encrypted prevents identity theft - more and more financial information is sent by email instead of post - bank statements, credit card bills, and much much more. If your email was compromised, the attacker would have financial information, history of purchases, login details to other sites, and soon they have visibility of the most intimite areas of your life.
Encrypting your email will keep everything safe. Your bank statements under digital lock and key, your social networking accounts safer, and your identity still yours.
