And yet, you sent this email. (: It went to a server at USNA, which
apparently gatewayed it to another USNA server, which sent it to TAPR's
server where it was checked for spam, modified if you used HTML, copied
to the archive and finally resent to UAH's server which checked it for
viruses and spam, then relayed it to my server which checked it again
and forwarded it to my other server which delivered it to my mailbox.
(we're not gonna talk about what happened at the IP level between here
and there.) You asked for very little of this, maybe didn't even know
most of it was happening, had absolutely no choice in the matter, and
yet the message got here just as you intended. The network
infrastructure did the right thing.
The same concept works on almost every other network on the planet, it
can work for APRS, too.
