Emailing personal data to clients

How much of a risk do people see in sending client information back and forth via email?  In particular personal data that falls within the scope of the Data Protection Act, such as practices may do with personal tax and payroll clients?

We have taken the view that this is a risk area for us and our clients, and have therefore deployed an email encryption solution to securely transfer data between us and the client.

Are we the only ones or are others doing similar things as well?
