Agreed, but HTTP is not the ultimative help. See corporate networks
with a non-transparent proxy which is configured centrally into the
windows boxes, so that users might not readily know that there is one.


HTTP was just an example. But like said on the thread "teaching users how to submit good bug reports" we can support proxies too, and there always be setups we will not have any remote access, it's not a reason to do not do anything to help those who can't easily use SMTP. Nowadays, require SMTP doesn't seem judicious.
