The following is my response to intraspam that I got scheduling an Outlook 2000 training session at work. I thought some other people might appreciate the sentiment.

I realize that many of you don’t currently use Outlook as your mail client, however, it’s the corporate standard (and an industry defacto standard) and it facilitates increased communication and collaboration

It also facilitates numerous worms and viruses, which have had more of an effect on corporate productivity than its collaboration features. I (like many others, I’m sure) know quite well how to use Outlook but choose not to, and as long as EMC pays me to exercise my professional knowledge and judgement I will apply it to that choice as I do to other aspects of my work. In short: no thanks.
