Sungod, sorry for the e-mail. Should've gone to the list.

> Several friends and I were debating the other day about the gains and losses that would be imposed if the entire Sendmail-based email system as we know it were scrapped for an XML-based system. This is purely hypothetical, as a complete replacement of the entire Internet email infrastructure as we know it is practically impossible, (techish snipped)
Would it? It would take a lot of time, yes, but I don't see it as impossible. Alternative means of communication are indeed capable of gaining acceptance (see ICQ, which is proprietary and doesn't cover everything conventional e-mail does). A well-though-out system like the one you described, capable of sender authentication, nonrefutation, spam protection, powerful formatting, seamless encryption/signing etc etc etc... could very well be built up and thrust upon the unsuspecting public. If it does everything e-mail does, I'd bet in 5 years SMTP would go the way of typewriters.
