Mac OS X Since my Cube could not run Leopard, and I did not have any other Macs, I was unable to delve into Leopard right away. Apple NL was kind enough to fix this problem for us, by generously loaning me a brand new MacBook with Leopard installed so I could review it for OSNews. Read on for the findings.

My company has received 6.2 million emails since late 2004, accordingly to our mail gateway. Of those emails, approx 85% have been rejected before delivery to our mail server. If they are massively loaded with abusive HTML, they are rejected. Most HTML emails are not, they are perfectly acceptable.

I've been out long enough to understand HTML email and what it is, as well as when rogue admins decide they will enforce their whim upon their users. We know better, so everyone must alter their way to suit us. I think it's lame. If you can't learn to meet your users' requirements, you have no business being a network administrator.

By the way, I can't help but think this is a bit like the DMCA argument: since a few users will pirate this DVD, we'll lock it down for everyone, since obviously, no one can be trusted.

We don't refuse delivery based on mime type, we don't alter emails at the server. Large companies just don't work that way.
