ePOST is a cooperative, serverless email system. Each user contributes a small amount of storage and network bandwidth in exchange for access to email service.  ePOST provides
• A serverless,  peer-to-peer email service
• Secure email emong ePOST users
• An organically scaling service that requires no dedicated hardware
• Very high availability and data durability
• Compatibility with POP/IMAP clients, SMTP mail servers
We have deployed ePOST to show that a cooperative peer-to-peer system can provide availability, reliability and security that matches or exceeds that of server-based solutions, while reducing hardware cost and administrative overhead.
