Web-based email

Look, I love the fact that I can check email from any browser in the world. But when faced with the choice between an email client AT MY DESK and a web-based email browser, I will take the client EVERYDAY of the week and TWICE on Sunday.

I never understand why users get all nervous and uneasy with a client. I mean, I guess the slow, link-based navigation system is just too attractive to leave. Apparently, the lack of features like easy rule creation, automatic email address retention, and drag-and-drop interface makes a web-based system a lot like a bicycle with a rusty chain:

It does the job, so I don’t care that it squeaks.  But DON’T YOU DARE apply oil!
Ohhh dear.
