I would certainly go with PGP, which means using PHP's program
execution functions
(http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.proc-open.php etc) and probably
GPG.

However, I would avoid sending sensitive info. through email.  If at
all possible, simply send a link, where these details can be looked at
via the web.

That said, PGP is pretty solid.
