Dave - the problem with basic email is that is has no assured delivery
capabilities or receipt processes. These have always been its failings
relative to commercial transactional messaging and until they are resolved
there is NO hope that email will be usable for anything other than casual
messaging - and if you have any doubts see the ABA's recommendation on email
security and use.
