A problem which could rise is the 'incentive' for peers to continuosly
providing bandwidth and disk space to store messages. I'm a simple dude,
with a mailflow of ~5 email per day. Why I should work for you, with
your ~10000 mail per day for all your mailing list?

Somewhere on this list (or p2p-hackers?) there was a post of mine,
regardings an economic incentive between peers, which could be a
solution, but as always technical problems arose, like pricing the
services and a fair exchange between peers.
