But look - my point from the beginning was this - I, personally, don't trust mail transport encryption - because of all discussed above. If I have to, I'll encrypt message itself - PGP or S/MIME...

What I care is a reputation of the provider I use - if there is a widely available tool, which shows that FastMail is inferior - that's a bad sign... And needs to be fixed, even if it does not help from technical point of view that much...
