Well, we used to have an email-to-fax gateway, and we required
that you have been an AOL user for at least three months before we
let you use that system (since it cost us real money, which we then
billed the user).
Who knows, maybe we could implement some sort of similar system
of restricting the ability to send Internet email (except to specific
addresses, at least until you learn enough about the system so that
you can turn this "feature" off).
