Not denying the criminal aspect, but who says the email has to really
come from that box? If there's one thing SMTP is "good" at, it's
allowing forged emails... it wouldn't take a decent phisher 10 minutes
to craft an email that has all the same content including From

Sure, the full headers would give up the game - but how many of your
users would (a) check them, and (b) understand what they're seeing?
I'd be surprised if it's more than 5% - and in many cases it only
takes one person to fall for it...


Linux supports the notion of a command line or a shell for the same
reason that only children read books with only pictures in them.
Language, be it English or something else, is the only tool flexible
enough to accomplish a sufficiently broad range of tasks.
