And I'm not in a position to judge, but I would be surprised if nearly every
user of a smart device didn't already have email configured for it.  "Systems"
are mobile and Internet-connected now, whether they run on Windows, Posix,
petroleum, or plutonium.  Even photocopy machines and ebook readers know about
email nowadays.

That would be a start.  But I have yet to see any real argument for not
returning to the noiseless UI behavior of yore, pre this regression - for all

Let users look for how to configure XYZ if they really need to configure XYZ.
Don't be annoying them by soliciting their participation in a configuration
dance.  If they really want to dance, they'll come ask you - no need to ask
