Sadly, although I can connect over IPv6 to Gmail an email sent from  
within the browser to an IPv6-only address (AAAA but also an MX) still  
gives the "DNS Error: DNS server returned answer with no data" message.

Transport is one thing but getting applications working with an IPv6  
world will take longer (not that it is that hard :-) )
