one idea I just had to hide the jobscripts completely was to encrypt  
them by the public ssh-key of each user before the job is submitted.  
Then it might be possible to use a special starter_method in SGE, to  
decrypt them again with the private key of the user before executing  

Same for the eMail address: encrypt them and configure a special  
mailer to decrypt and send the mail.
