That's because you don't know what you are talking about (either about
my focus or about mail system design).

Oh man!  What a 2 year old!  Keith,  I'm sure you more mail system product
design, development and market experience than I do.   If its more than 25
years covering design, development and marketing with every form of mail
software from MUA to mid ware to hosting, then by gawd, I don't know
anything and you are far better than me.   I am sure you also have more
experience in a "File System" and "Hosting System" too.  Do you have a web
site to check out your feature list?  Maybe I can steal a few tips for our
new versions.

I ask the QUESTION hopefully to get an intelligent discussion going, but I
guess that was too much to ask of you without pulling teeth!   if your focus
(any only answer) is user needs was a way to address MAJOR industry
transport problem - Hey, knock yourself out!   But tell us SMTP developers
that it can't address it at SMTP  - its flawed thinking.

Of course "us" not you, SMTP developers now it is a transparent process, but
"us" SMTP developers know better as the market helps mold the process.

Keith, with all due respect,  you seem to have a fundamental flawed premise
about new IETF participants having little experience and young,   I am not
making that up.  You said it yourself in a 2001 article:

I found it during research to find out why the IETF is so resistance to
solving problems and also see the mindset of the what seem to the key closed
mind participants.   Maybe you should reread the response to your message:

If I had to say it myself,  the response pretty much says it all.

All this started with a simple pertinent question!  Yeah, I know. You don't
think it was pertinent.

My apologies to OTHERS on this. What a complete waste.
