Yeah. It really is that silly.

As the three snails slowly amble around the tank, they occasionally come into range of an electronic reader, which attaches the e-mail message to the RFID chip.

The electronic messages are then physically carried around the tank by the snails until one of the gastropods passes close to a second reader.

It is then forwarded over the net in the usual way.
Go ahead. "Snail Mail" somebody. Can't be worse than the US Post Office.
