You don't have to believe me that our clients will not accept that, take
his words instead:

"Our users hated it - particularly those using MS Outlook"

No need to describe what happens when your clients hate your service...

Pop before SMTP has come a long way since 1999, and newer outlook does
SMTP auth.  If you support both, Pop before SMTP for clients who cannot
do SMTP Auth, then you shouldn't have users hating it.
