I've been insisting on it for more than one year and all I got was 
the opinion than having non computer professionals in the company learn about 
proper attachment formats was too difficult / expensive. I think that 
is nonsense and the benefits far outweight the "expenses", but I'm getting
tired of insisting. The only thing to do is to tell people one by one 
until they're all convinced, but it's difficult when they don't listen. 
I guess some more patience/diplomacy on my part would come handy. 

Anyway. Let's leave it here. I never doubted you're right.
