I'm not sure that the one way MEP is adapted for an email binding, 
especially if you have all the machinery to do protocol-level correlation. 
While there is not a big issue to have multiple receivers for a true one 
way message (as there is no way to do correlation, so you know that there 
is NO chance that you will get faults or replies), but for something like 
email where you may have, via the message id a way to correlate request 
and responses, it seems quite problematic to say that it is one-way.
