I'm considering building a lowish end mail appliance using DCC, but if I
do, it'll be running something unixish so it can run its own server, and
I'd charge a monthly maintenance fee which would include access to other

If DCC catches on, the economics are likely to be like those of usenet.
If you're big enough and/or clueful enough to run your own server, you can

access to someone else's server.
