The real problem is that the unencrypted nature of email makes most solutions non-starters. If end-to-end were the default, then you could imagine having a process whereby you ran a P2P service which kept your MX records pointed to a cluster of network members, all of whom agreed to act as your MX fallback if you went down and which collectively handled monitoring and distributing blacklist notifications.

You're implying that this is not advisable to do because any such fallback could snoop the data?

I'm sorry I'm not sure I quite understand what you say the problem is and how it relates to the unencrypted nature of email.
