Unless you are going to implement S/MIME or PGP you email is not encrypted. And to my knowledge Yahoo/Hotmail/GMail doesn't do that.

Just because you sign into an SSL web page does not mean all the email you send is encrypted. It just means your sign on information is secure and the login page you are logging into is secure/legit.

And to have fully encrypted email the receiver of your email must have your decryption key... I most common instanced public keys (digital certificates).
