Well, heck, we could just tell everyone to switch to web mail and we'd
already be done.

There are a whole lot of people picking up their mail using POP from a
whole lot of mail systems.  Disks are cheap but they are not free, and
many ISPs do not want to host the permanent mailstore for their users.
I agree we don't need a 100% solution, but we really need at least a
50% solution.

R's,
