If you trust freenigma, then this is a great solution for users worried about their privacy. Unfortunately, making the process so easy and transparent to the user compromises the security of the encryption since a third-party (freenigma) is involved in generating the encryption keys. However, I think it's very promising. I've seen other email encryption programs that were too complicated to implement for most users, but freenigma is so simple that it could really take off. Maybe one day encrypting email will be commonplace because of this.
