oh yeah, explain this the customers MUA when he clicks on "sent mail"

it is naive to believe some weird solution which
only works as long the sune shines is useable

if they don't care i would refuse them as customer

i saw way too often people saying "i do not care"
but later "oh but you did not explain THIS result exactly"

people are mostly to stupid to realize what they
are trying to accomplish and why it it a bad idea

this is why we professionals exist and if people
refuse what you are explaining them kiss them
goodbye - irt will be better for you over the long
