I think this is an excellent idea.


Lets say my current Email server is located at mail.elliottaviation.com and mail.elliottaviation.net

I would prefer two .mail extensions at: mail.elliottaviation.com.mail and mail.elliottaviation.net.mail that would work well and be easily understood for all domains.


I think the cost to setup a .mail at $2,000 is expensive.


I would like to see a different fee structure:

For domains existing over 2 years with verifiable information $200.00

For domains existing over 1 years with verifiable information $500.00

For domains existing less than 6 months with verifiable information $1,000.00 with a $1,000.00 bond that would be refunded after 1 year.

All renewals to be no more than $100.00 annually.


Remember there are a lot of small companies that a $2,000.00 charge would not be worth paying. That means they would not adopt the .mail system and this entire idea would fail because of a lack of critical mass.


Just my thoughts. :
