And if the "service provider" is your employer/educational institution? You
quit your job? Drop out of school? Swallow your pride and suffer with
webmail?
You do the same thing you do when they implement other stupid policies - you live with the policy, or you work around it. If your school makes a stupid policy that you can't park your car between the hours of 8 am and 9 am, you get there before 8 or after 9, or you have a friend drop you off, or take the bus, or you pay to park in the lot across the street.
