    I'm thinking about signing all emails with PGP to let people know who also use it.
    However, this might confuse novice users.

    So I can:
    -Sign all emails, that will show:
    -Sign all emails with PGP/MIME.
    The email itself stays clean, but they will have the signature.asc file as attachment.

    -Not sign the emails, and add my Key ID into the standard plain text/HTML signature of the email client.
    Less confusing than the other options, but unsigned.

    For confidential stuff you should not only sign but also encrypt your message.
    Signing message is like your real signature plus pgp/gpg signing protect message from MITM (when 3rd person want to edit your message)
