It's completely true what other people say, but I'd like to add that the EC would be sabotaging its own efforts in strengthening citizens' rights with a directive mandating backdoors.
Technologically speaking, a distributed approach such as email encryption via PGP doesn't allow for hoster-provided backdoors. The EC would have to forbid such technologies, and thereby sabotage innovation in this field.
It's a bad idea all around.
