You can also use UUCP addressing if you really want (or if you're really
insane you can use a combo of internet, UUCP and BitNet addressing and send
it via FidoNet using tin cans), why would you want to an email set up
should be *SIMPLE* and even then it has problems with delivery (why add
even more failure points).

Case in point I use gmail not because of its ease of use per se (even
though it is better then most standalone MUA's) I use it because it is an
off-site backup of years worth of correspondence that is too valuable to
worry about losing in a hardware failure.
