The irratating part about this (and most other articles) is that they
misquote the both the available services/software and their price. I don't
find it irksome for them to say "it doesn't email out-the box". It
doesn't. I do find it bothersome that they would tell me that it cost $60
plus modem to get may mail, when I know I can pay a nominal fee per month
with practically no software (via pilotmail) or free software plus modem to
*get* my mail. And to me, easily getting the mail is more important than
the method used.
