Most of my work-email will probably be from coworkers using Outlook. 
So far I haven't got anything fancier than attachments, so perhaps it
could work.

Yeah, but one thing is how easy it is to do, another is persuading
them that it is a good idea to check the box (my new username isn't
'asjo' despite asking for it, for instance. I'm going to mistype the
new username a billion times as 'asjo' has been my username everywhere
for the past 13 years...)

In all fairness I should mention though that I haven't asked them yet,
so I should give the benefit of doubt ;-)

  Thanks for the input!
