Sounds like 'all crap' to me, but then I don't transmit anything important in email that I didn't encrypt.

This really smells like conspiracy to me. The NSA does not 'monitor' email for the hell of it.

Executive Order 12333, dated 4 December 1981, describes the responsibility of the National Security Agency and the Central Security Service (NSA/CSS) in more detail. The resources of NSA/CSS are organized for the accomplishment of two national missions:

* The Information Assurance mission provides the solutions, products, and services, and conducts defensive information operations, to achieve information assurance for information infrastructures critical to U.S. national security interests.

* The foreign signals intelligence or SIGINT mission allows for an effective, unified organization and control of all the foreign signals collection and processing activities of the United States. NSA is authorized to produce SIGINT in accordance with objectives, requirements, and priorities established by the Director of National Intelligence in consultation with the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.
