I'm not convinced that XML could have a huge role to play in delivering 
email. But I do think that the current mess of transport and store 
protocols could be successfully replaced by HTTP(S), along the line of 
Paul Prescod's


Presumably, within such a message store, the "folder" collection 
resources would return representations in XML (lists of message 
metadata). It would then be trivial to implement an XSLT-based webmail 
front end in HTML (modo GMail or Hotmail) to manage your mailboxes, or 
write a mail client that accesses the XML/MIME resources directly.
