PGP is probably your best bet, easy to use and integrates easily with things like outlook / outlook express.  The official version hasn't been free for a while, but it isn't very expensive -

Full instructions come with the program, and it is a simple task to create keys, distribute you public key, and add your friends public keys to allow easy encryption and authentication.

Various free versions are available and actively developed but are not always as easy to use, have a look at -

if you want to investigate free options.
