Jeremy’s video mail application

Jeremy’s put up a video mail application on his blog… Jim and I were talking about how cool it would be to send not just a Flash movie to a mail box, but to actually send a *live* Flash video to a mailbox. Would it be possible to send an email to a user w/ an embedded Flash movie which calls a remote server on open of the email… which then alerts let’s say a salesperson that so and so has opened the email… the salesperson could then start a dialog w/ the person via Flash MX Communication Server. Freaky (if someone could recognize that a) you opened an email from them and b) that they could then talk to you from your inbox), but cool.
