  • the .REDIRECT feature as it lets people know that they need to update their adress book instead of silently forwarding it to the new address. I used to manage a system with 12k users where the dean made us give a 1 year grace period to students who graduated or left then a 6 month period of the redirect. A database is perfect for this sort of thing which can rebuild those tedious files every night and eliminate dupes :)
