Agree on semantic inbox. So we could develop something simple like the following:

@prefox <http://joe.example/#> .

:me webmail:inbox </inbox/>;

As with pingback, </inbox/> should return an html form, with a message field for the referent of the webid (with a well known attribute name). The page could have a type

<> a webmail:PostPage;
   webmail:recipient <http://joe.example/#me> .

It is very important that the PostPage refer back to the webid, as that is what is needed to avoid spamming. 

   This is a simple protocol we could develop easily.
