I am surprised that noone has made the obvious statement, if you are  
in a position that you could use the APRS Email service, you are in a  
position to post a position to the APRS-IS. Now f your point is to  
'email' that position to someone else (not some APRS-IS linked server  
that handles posits) it would be much easier to wire an application  
for that person to run on their machone to get your posit from Findu  
and compose an email.
