We could just as well say that "encryption of remote server sessions is rare in everyday use". It's just that only geeks even do remote server sessions, so they use SSH instead of telnet. The thing is that email is in wide use (unlike remote server sessions). Personally I doubt that anything other than a small percentage of email will ever be signed, let alone encrypted (heck, most people on this list don't even sign their mail).
