It seems to me that if you want a private e-mail network, there are
plenty of ways to construct one now, e.g., use S/MIME and only accept
mail from senders whose signing keys are on your whitelist and encrypt
with your public key.  Or use per-correspondent subaddresses, as
Zoemail has been doing for over a decade.  If this were a problem that
needed to be solved, there are plenty of solutions already.

R's,
