While these are wonderful intentions, you might consider the whole package of who your target audience is. Switchers - the name itself implying that they are coming from something else to Mac OS X. It is likely that these people would be coming from Windows or Linux. You might consider that in either of these cases, Thunderbird has a somewhat special (and free) capacity to allow importing of Outlook (and Mozilla) mail into the Apple Mail.app you are favoring. You might consider mentioning this, at least in passing, as a Switcher intending to switch to Mail.app may well need an application to import their messages to their new Mac.

Or don't. It really doesn't effect my paycheck one way or the other...
