Due to a fiasco involving a failed service provider, I have to put together a small (5-10 pages) website in the next 72 hours.

I'm starting to wonder, though, whether those 90s-era precautions are still as applicable today. (This would be for regular day-to-day e-mail—not bulk e-mail or the like.) [more inside]
