How about pop3 and smtp? There is no secure alternative beside using pgp,
isn't it?

Most modern pop3 and imap clients and servers support TLS.  That protentially
gives you a certificate protected channel between the client and server.

A nice setup is dovecot server and thunderbird client using all TLS.
