zima,

I was thinking of that too. For better or worse, SMTP is entrenched everywhere. Replacing it universally would require coordination across hundreds of thousands of organizations, not even google could do it alone. Realistically it would need the cooperation of microsoft and apple too, and I'm not sure how keen they'd all be working together.
