Yeah, they read that Gmail is encrypted, or that this service now uses TLS as 
well as SSL, or that they offer this or that security feature, or promise 
more privacy; and then they think there is nothing more to do.

see why here: because encrypting all alone is like having sex all alone. 
Unless you do it together with others, it's just wanking.
