Ok, I couldn't resist a third go:

You are an email exchange?

Because the outbox can be found inside the inbox, and vice versa.

..and a pobox inside the inbox. Hmm, still doesn't explain the brother
connection... and you do have a brother don't you. Infinity is two circles
inside one another. The letter 'I' is three boxes inside one another.

Bloody annoying, that's what you are! :)
