If (1) is sendmail, then its wording should be modified, because
Windows users will think it refers to their MUA.

Anyway, the question was not about the choices, which are quite clear.
The question was about the UI: how will we ask these questions, in
which sequence, and what wording?  I think getting this right is
crucial for avoiding the n+1st round of arguing about this issue.
Were these aspect finalized yet (I didn't track this thread closely)?
