    I am looking for a way to make my mail as secure as possible, similar to Hushmail, countermail or Cryptoheaven. The problem with them services you have to have the mail hosted on their server. Is there a way to hide my IP and any other data when sending emails to people? Is there a mail client in Cpanel that will do this or will it require some addon? Also, is there a way to have encrypted emails?

    That is not something an email client can do. When you send an email the receiving mail server sees the IP where the email comes from and adds that to the email's headers.
    I suppose you could hide the IP if you use a proxy.

    What would it involve to achieve something like this then? Would I need to change to MX records to domain company who supports this?

    MX records have nothing to do with outgoing mail.

    I suggest you google for "email proxy" or "smtp proxy".

    Hiding your IP when sending emails is not something that should be supported nor recommended. It is typically only used by spammers to avoid getting their server blacklisted. I cannot think of any reason a legitimate email sender would want to hide their sending server IP.
