By default internet traffics is not encrypted from point to point (some do but if you have some kit at the end point then you can still read it) and generally considered to be a bit like popping a postcard in the post. The same with e-mail the header has to be readable to it can get to the recipient and then its more like sending a sealed letter and the better the encryption the harder it is to open but you get into having to have both sides know how to open and close the letter.
The problem was that ip v4 was designed when security wasn't really a problem/interest so there is no way to ensure total security.

All Email is Under Surveillance - Testimony of an Owner of an Email Service
All U.S. email servers are being monitored. Most, if not all, foreign ones are too. Talking face to face and handing over written notes are your best option for privacy. Make your notes by hand or on a machine that is not tied in to a network or use an old fashion type writer. Make sure the information you give him doesn't end up in a computer somehow either.
