Consider implementing a feature for "Send email" on
User pages. Of course, this should be implemented so
as not to reveal the entered email address, and
possibly have an option for users to turn it off.

    Also consider eventually integrating the
    various mailing lists into such a system.
    Perhaps adding a voting mechanism for
    issues presented after a certain amount of
    posts are presented and a simple majority
    of list participants agree to put an issue to
    vote.

    Another possible important feature would
    be for sysops to have the ability to email
    all other sysops at one time to make
    important announcements (such as
    warnings not to use a certain sysop
    feature due to a dangerous bug).

    Yet another possibility is to have the
    same funcitonality to email all users (who
    have opted-in) about important general
    announcements about wikipedia.
