The advantage of video mail is that it allows the users to send and receive whenever they are ready. This is especially useful when crossing time zones or dealing in foreign languages. Store and forward messaging is much easier to accommodate than is real time communication, because packets can be deferred for later delivery. Unlike video conferencing, video mail does not require vast amounts of synchronous bandwidth. However it will require large amounts of processing power and hard disk space on both ends of the communication link and so may take a while to really prove successful as frequent video mail file transfers could clog LANs.
