True, but if 90% of all people use webmail, then that's where we need to 
find new users.

Everybody: Ask your mom and aunt and the friendly clerk at your 
preferred newspaper stand what they use to check mail. Try to make them 
use Thunderbird. Observe them how they use it, without intervening or 
judging, yourself hands-off. Learn from that experience.

If even Brendan Eich is using gmail (happily, since many years), then we 
gotta reflect.
