So you are saying that the existing email exchange network is not scalable because it is non-hierarchical? It looks like its scaled pretty well so far. Maybe I'm not understanding something. The entire paragraph quoted appears to be entirely content free except for some various assertions. Could you elaborate further on 1) how the existing non-hierarchical email exchange network is not scalable. What are your definitions of "scale" and what are the current choking points that you see? 2) the email exchange overlay network and the similarities to the underlying ip network with elaborations on how the hierarchy of IP maps to the hierarchy in email overlays. thanks /vijay
