They would be encouraged to turn it back on :-)

I would expect that if they had gone in and changed this from the default 
they were either a) advanced users with alternative solutions; b) clever 
enough to realise it could result in more spam; or c) previously employed by 
Sainsbury's as the trolley-boy and found it a bit too mentally challenging.

Apologies to all for forgetting to flag this OT. I have posted the same 
question on an Outlook discussion list and will share the answer here if I 
get one.
