Email is not secure at all. In general, you shouldn't email anything that you don't want the whole world to read. However, it is very easy to create encrypted PDF files that you can include as an attachment.

I wrote some instructions on how to do this (on a Mac) and have attached them as an encrypted PDF file. The password is FIRE.

If you receive electronically delivered financial statements, you can use the same trick to encrypt them and safely save them on your computer.
