    Your Linux boxes can use GNU Privacy Guard ( which
    is a free (as in free beer or as in free speech) implamentation of PGP.

    Most Linux mail clients (Evolution, T'Bird, Sylpheed, mutt, pine) support
    it. Enigmail for Thunderbird works especially well.
    Also, there are some programs that intercept all
    incoming/outgoing mail and decrypt and encrypt as needed
    seamlessly -- no user intervention needed at all.
    You might look at Hushmail as well.
