Yes, inbound and outbound would ultimately be needed.
The most likely scenario would be POP3 inbound to a server bot (as
described below) and for outbound, to "help" insure that new postings
into the DDD Groove space are sent from the actual poster, new postings
to an e-mail enabled Groov Discussion tool would trigger the creation of
an outbound e-mail that would be posted to an SMTP server (the person's
regular remote SMTP server - most likely the same one their e-mail
client uses today).
Maybe I'm making too much of this but no local mail servers are needed
on each person's machine. However, the discussion does help clarify how
P2P architectures can/should be used
