For non-technical users the best thing to do is to have an error message 
that's informative to a sysadmin which they can paste or forward to someone 
who can fix it.

One of my pet hates with some MS email software is when it doesn't display the 
real error message to the user and hides it in a way that's beyond the ability 
of the non-technical user to discover and report.
