Because running pine over SSH is not a "gateway" as defined in RFC
5321, whereas running a Webmail server that accepts email using some
kind of transport (HTTP or HTTPS) and then delivers it using SMTP *is*
a gateway as defined in RFC 5321.

Maybe you think it's splitting hairs, but we have to abide by the RFC,
which is abundantly clear.
