The majority of people are no more capable of GnuPG than understanding why
RAM can't be solely used on a computer.

GnuPG has some weird defaults that are difficult to change as well without
some command line commands.

Ultimately your system will have a major flaw: passwords are typically have
low entropy, and anyone with the same password will read the same mail
unless you concatenate a salt the user has to remember.

The ideal system would be to use Tor in conjunction with guerrillamail. Or
to use a preshared key with a block cipher, and hide the encryption (since
evidently you want to avert the attention of the NSA to be encrypting in
the first place) using steganography.
