I guess he doesn't want the email *originating* application to access
the internet; rather to use some local MAPI object-model which then
takes care to forward messages over the local network or whatever the
setup is.

"Be strict when sending and tolerant when receiving." (from RFC1958)
I really should keep that in mind when talking with people, actually...
