This paper provided, briefly and concretely, an interesting proposition of merging e-mail and chat systems. The fact that an active mail remain connected even after the user logs out of the system, should be considered in more detail. This has some implications for cooperation and implementation. If it would be possible without a server (except for sending the e-mail) and each machine would connect directly to the other machine, this seems as a very useful system.
