Thunderbird offers several options for secure email, and the GnuPG-based Enigmail encryption add-on provides an additional layer of protection.

The small-footprint, user-friendly Thunderbird email client is rapidly gaining ground with the Internet community. Most Linux distributions include Thunderbird [1] by default. The Mozilla developers have ready-to-run versions for most current systems on their website. Debian does not have an official package for the current version, but test versions are available from the maintainer’s repository [2].
