Claim X400 - X.400 irrelevant by 2000

Category: Science & Technology:Internet JUDGED at 100
Owner:62, Alvestrand
Judge:74, niobium
due date:2000/01/01

The Claim

X.400, the mail standard, will be irrelevant by the year 2000.

The claim will be judged NO if one of the following is true:

  • A major retail software distributor reports that sales of X.400 end-user UAs are significant (more than 10% of its category) Gateways don't count here.
  • A believable survey shows at least 10% of E-mail traffic in some category with X.400/Internet competition is carried by X.400. Gateways count; politically chosen networks (like EC offices) don't.
The claim will be judged YES if one of the following is true:
  • ITU or ISO deletes X.400 from its list of standards/Recommendations in force
  • No major trade association (like EMA or EEMA) advocates the use of X.400
  • None of the 5 biggest network operators in the US offer an X.400 service to new customers (legacy systems don't count)
If none of the claims above are decidable, decision will be made by a poll announced to relevant newsgroups.
If claims both in the YES and NO category are true, the return will be divided equally between the YES and NO holders.
