If the average web user can post photo albums on Fakebook, they've the
brains to use a mail client. Thunderbird even tries to autoconfigure
itself based on the the email address, setting the servers & ports.
It's more work up front to teach them, but its less work than explaining
your box got rooted via some stupid web app & all their personal details
are now at risk.
Dump stubborn users, they're not worth the support nightmare. (I worked
for years in an ISP's tech support dept - ON THE PHONE. Most people are
OK with a few screen shots & some help to get going.)

sort of like when you ping flood yourself…
Can't seem to face up to the facts
Tense and nervous and I can't relax
Can't sleep, bed's on fire
Don't touch me I'm a real live wire
