I want at least my end encrypted. It is easy, (apart from the
sent-folder. Workaround could be to disable the sent-folder or keep it
locally, but that is not nice.)

Well the benefit is that all mail at the providers place are encrypted.
This is calming. I can only read the mails if I load the key from my
stick first, at home, work, laptop etc. 
(for example, on holiday, you can use any laptop, terminal to check
the mail without too much fear of exposing everything (different reply
