I agree with Paul here.. you should send out the email, and give them a URL with some screenshots with little pointers and circles (and of course, a default windows XP theme) that walks them through how to do it. Repeat this email every week for a month, and then start blocking accounts who are abusing. Also, you may want to update your AUP to say that checking your pop email more than once every 10 minutes is a violation, notify your customers about it, and implement the policy. Applying a technical solution to an administrative problem is always a lot more work than simply applying the iron fist. -Jeremy -- Jeremy Kitchen ++ Systems Administrator ++ Inter7 Internet Technologies, Inc.
