Hi Dennis,

that is indeed a valid argument. My list of proposed locations must not 
be limiting, if there are other locations that fulfill the requirements 
plus guarantee security, that would be allright for me as well, of course.

If we basically agree that such a list as outlined by me is a way to go, 
I am happy to ask a friend of mine who has a very good reputation in 
being a mail server, mailing list and security expert, with a very good 
track record, including all sorts of certifications. He is offering 
e-mail services as business.

I just don't want to spread the name publically without asking him 
first, and I don't want to ask him, before we have some common 
understanding. :-)

But if we agree that such an approach makes sense, I can ping him in the 
next days and we can see if that would suite our security requirements.

(And, thanks for a senseful mail, indeed!)
