So surely the problem here is a matter for user interface design: users should be in the habit of "classifying" certain emails, web transactions, etc. A big red button marked "this ought to be secret" would cause your mail client to mention if the SMTP server doesn't support encryption, if it can't verify the server's key, and so on; otherwise it wouldn't care, because the user doesn't.
