We have at NetMesh, for some time.  Go to
and sign up for a Yadis/OpenID/LID multi-protocol URL that supports  
Authenticated Messaging.

Basically, it's an HTTP POST with the message payload that you want  
to convey, which is digitally signed using either GPG or OpenID. On  
the receiving end, it gets forwarded into the user's e-mail (but  
without sharing the address)

It supports any kind of payload by specifying a MIME type. You can  
build higher-level functionality on top, such a messages with a  
certain format or payload structure.

You can download the code that does this from
under an open-source or commercial license.

And yes, it's a separate Yadis service type.
