Don't even need that. I can telnet into the appropriate server/port from
a command prompt but, like your solution below, that is not non-geek
friendly. We need a solution that is AOL user friendly, not NANOG user
friendly if we ever expect to make money with this thing called the
Internet. This will always be tragedy-of-the-commons; the very things
that make service attractive for Joe PayingCustomer also make it easy
for Joe Spammer/Hax0r. 

Open<->Secure, choose your business plan carefully. Good Luck.

Best regards,

Unnamed Administration sources reported that Al Rowland said:


Only convenient kludge that is (mostly) provider independent is a 
webmail service, a completely different can of worms/flame war.

Or a shell account at Panix, reached via SSH. 

$100.00/year is worth it to me; YMMV.
