Hmmm, I know this is probably way beyond the grasp of the average 
user like "Ms. Billings", however, couldn't she choose to print the 
invoice, select "print to file" and mail the postscript file herself?
That's what I'd do to get around this.  Why in the world would anyone 
want to have this type of e-mail go through an unknown mail server 
like Intuit's?  Of course, non-geeks are likely to be completely 
clueless as to how e-mail works, never mind what servers their e-mail 
travels through.

Hmmm, I don't suppose there's the option to encrypt said invoices 
*before* mailing it out, huh?  Of course, that would pre-suppose that 
each party created and supplied the invoicing user with a public 
encryption key.

I don't like the USPS overly much, but at least (AFAIK), they don't 
currently read my mail as it passes through their facilities :)

        It may look like I'm just sitting here doing nothing,
   but I'm really actively waiting for all my problems to go away.

         If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right!
