One way that I really wish would catch on more would be public-key
encryption using GPG (also goes by PGP). You can combine it with an email
client like Thunderbird, which has some good tools that use PGP keys
(Enigmail plugin) to securely send attachments. If you encrypt and sign
something like a zip file using GPG, you can also securely share that file
via things like dropbox, or google drive, and still be assured that only
the recipient would be able to decrypt and see the contents. Here's the
link to the Mozilla support page for Digitally Signing and Encrypting
Messages:
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/digitally-signing-and-encrypting-messages#w_installing-gpg-and-enigmail

The only disadvantage of this, is that you must exchange GPG public keys
with your recipient (or use a key-server) and have a little bit of
understanding about how the tool works. But it's all open source, free,
proven secure, and has some decent tools for encrypting / decrypting.

I believe that there are plans this year to have GPG support build directly
into the Thunderbird client, so, it should get even easier!

Good luck!
