I got to admit that I haven't been following all of this thread, but...

what about those who have email accounts on msn sites? that pretty much
sucks that they either have to use IE (certain versions, it seems) of
NN6/4 OR change their email address (anyone who's done so will no what a
pain in the arse that is! and that is the sole reason i originally bought
my domain name...).

just thought i'd throw that in there (and hope no one else has already
done so)...
