choice of email client is not the only factor in choosing the job.
e.g. at my job we do all the development on solaris but outlook is the
only suported email client (they don't even offer pop3 anymore). I don't
see it as a reason to quit. would you?
I lobby for using better tools here and there (I have other thing to
do on my job as well:-) but changing email for a company of 200.000 is
not that easy.
