I'm talking about people with GNOME on their system. Live CD is Windows/Mac OS
X people. If I have GNOME on my system, I don't want it uploading a file and
then having to download it again. Needless network requirement IMO.

I mean: upload using HTTP post, send the formatted email on the server. Not a
generic relay server. For security, some kind of capthca thing.
