I used to be on AOHell. Because it was my first IP, I never gave much thought to the feature that allowed email to be “unsent” to other AOL addresses.
Is there any compelling reason why that software feature cannot be offered inter-IP ? Not to be overly dim, I have thought about this.
I send an email from Hotmail ( MSN servers ) to Yahoo ( Yahoo servers ). I decide not to leave it , and wish to Unsend it. How hard would it be to have all IP’s agree to that software change, so that I could send a note that pulled that email off of Yahoo’s servers before it is opened?
-grin- No, I’m not in a pickle. It just occurred to me that only on AOL could you undo the written word with such ease. Is such a thing even feasable across IP’s, and if so, would it in fact lighten the burdern of email flow, or increase it ?
