    Email.......is evil

    All my users have email. ALL of them. In caSe for a reason...it is a pain. 400+ people have email, all sending the same 4meg video clip to each other...bad enough. Then, think corporate esponiage...PGP is free, and just send your biz plan to a competiter...as some of our employees come from competiters...doh. I could hook you up w/ all our stuff, I won't...but I could, just give me your pgp key....or even, plain text. They don't scan our email, maybe just subjects, and hell....java chat. I think our 'lowly' employees should not have email. Only managers should have it. Everyone is treated like royality and able to send whatever. 7 meg restriction? To high. We recently had a battle with our CEO via email, everyone wrote to the entire company [10,000+ people] about why the company sux and their peon ideas on how to fix it. -Mr.W
