Having to go to a web page to change details on what is just really an
email service is a bad thing IMO, so:

      easily administered via an email interface.

It is a RPITA to have to go online - fire up a web browser - go to a
special site - enter password details etc - ...

   compared to

Compose email offline - go online - send email.
