    Because the net Nazis make often make it the only way to send/receive
    mail in a domain. There is nothing coming or going here that doesn't
    go through a M$ mail-killer that even saves every thread of evidence.

    For instance, there is no signature on this file. I'll bet that
    by the time you read it, there is one.
