My ISP (xo commications) does not use procmail and will not allow me to
install anything on there servers. I really hate to use windows. As for
email clients we either use firefox or just check our email directly on XO's
server. THe machine (a laptop) will likely not get messed with and will
require a password anyway and the attachments that are accepted will be
copied to other machines in the office. It should be fairly reliable.
