well, i regard it as 'totally useful' and i'm sure others would do the same, and this has nothing to do with the email protocol.. what it _DOES_ have to do with is the ICQ / YIM / MSN / AIM protocols, all complex, and most undocumented. ICQ Pager works by taking a HTTP POST from a website, and has been prooven un-reliable, as its simple enouigh for users to press an 'Off' button on them, as they are mostly used for spam. Also there is a high chance that you will get a page informing you that the message send has failed. And as i was saying, this would take a conciderable ammount of coding, for something that will rarely be used.

>i think that 'IM Fields' is a very significant change for something so minor. The MSN, AOL and Y! protocols arnt documented, yet those and the ICQ protocol are _VERY_ complex in the way they work, and it all seems kinda pointless.
