I agree with you that if a user has an account, they should have email.
The accounts are for Elementary students. Some of the teachers/staff don't 
want some kids to have access to email if they abuse it. (They could send 
nasty emails to other class mates) (We use IMP)
We use a squid proxy to help block commercial email sites from the school, but 
this will never stop a kid from sending email from their homes. 
Anyway, I hope I never have to block email accounts, but if the boss says so, 
then I guess I have to find a way. 
Thanks for your suggestions.
