Yes - if you send a PGP encrypted email (from with-in or outside mailfence), your recipient will receive an encrypted (unreadable) email and will require his/her private (decryption) key to decrypt and read that email.
See this 'how to' manual for more details.

There's no inactivity period for paid plans.
