Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Others have addressed the technical complications of collecting an email tax, so I'll just note something about the SMS, in the UK at least.

It's hard to think of a proposal more guaranteed to destroy the image of the EU in the eyes of young people in the UK than to put a tax on the form of messaging that is central to their social lives.

Alain Lamassoure deserves a special medal for services to Euroscepticism for this proposal.
