They moved us to this at work last year, it is so awful I 
can't believe it!
The web portal takes minutes to bring up a page, and the 
interface is so ghastly, I could not learn how to use it.

I use the IMAP interface to it, and store everything that it 
lets me locally with Thunderbird, but it is STILL really 
slow and unreliable.  First thing every day, I open 
Thunderbird, and it takes about 5 MINUTES to download the 5 
or so messages that I have. Sending a single mail message 
never takes less than 30 seconds, and often stalls for 
minutes.  It IS working better than right after the 
changeover, but I can't believe most users aren't up to the 
torches and pitchforks stage.  Thank GOD I don't have to 
deal with this abomination from home.
