+3 I have been using S/MIME for over a year now. It is natively available on all my iOS devices by simply importing a .mobileconfig or .pcks profile. Likewise it's supported by Thunderbird on Windows out of the box. It doesn't get easier than that. What remains cumbersome is where or how to get a certificate/profile - same as with PGP.
I looked at PGP in the 90s as well, great to work with privately, but it's not supported natively by most applications. Quite frankly, if it's so difficult to integrate PGP (an add-on of sorts every time?) then it should exactly NOT be recommended for personal use, in my humble opinion.
SMIME is much more ubiquitous. Therefor, please reconsider adding SMIME support. No one is asking that you abandon PGP, but please add SMIME? Many will appreciate it, you may even win new users.
