When you click the shiny 'send' or 'retrieve' buttons it connects to the Jester 
mail server to check for any new mail and/or to send out anything queued on 
your computer. It then sits there for half an hour before finally getting sent, 
if at all. (At least it did when I worked there).

With a demolicious account, you'd fill in the server details in your mailer for 
the new account, and then it'd connect straight from your computer to the 
demolicious mail server to send/fetch any mail. Your work server isn't involved 
at all, unless you're sending mail to somebody with a *@jesterinteractive.com
