I don't know what kind of grandmother you have, but not even my mother would
participate in either an OpenMoko mailing list or a forum.  If your
grandmother is anything like mine, the first time she has an issue or a
question, she will call me (you) and you will have to find the answer.

And the "average user" of an OpenMoKo phone (At least at this stage in the
game) is going to have to setup e-mail anyway.  If the e-mail reader on the
platform is any good, it will be able to handle multiple accounts and filter
incoming/outgoing messages anyway.
