I suspect that's half the point. Only like equipped users can communicate. Guess there could be a use in the financial or military markets, or other intentionaly "closed" environments... There again, I'd also guess they have such systems implemented already?
Servers, nothing to stop you delivering directly, as many corporate systems do already, ours included, so long as you know the IP or domain address of course... I suspect for the above type of users, regular POP/SMTP/IMAP etc incompatability would not be a problem! Have to say though, spam is primeraly user driven from personal experience, from website form filling and so on. And what happens when a spammer gets hold of one of these secure mailer clients etc. Wonder why PGP or Open GPG is not as popular as it could be? There are "plugins" that integrate OK with the likes of Outlook (ugh!) Thunderbird, Pegasus etc... Ah, of course, the powers that be, like to watch what goes on.... Silly me... Cheers.. I'll crawl back under my rock, it's a bit too bright out here...
