Hey, I was just wondering if email , in any case, can be considered as a peer to peer application. This thing is driving me nuts as email,as i know it, just involves communication between two clients and doesn't has a centralized server waiting for a query kinda thing.
Thanks!!

Email doesn't work as you imagine that you send to someone and other person recieves it. Your mail is first sent to servers of gmail/yahoo whatever service provider you are using. Then when other person acces his mail via website he request the servers of gmail to deliver the stored mail.
