OK, having given a little thought to this and other replies, I'm
thinking of a fourth.

That doesn't appeal.  I wouldn't be qualified to communicate in
pictures to normal users, let alone yours.  The nearest to that
I could reasonably consider is to offer systems/programming
support to someone like yourself.

Indeed, that option has some appeal.  But it brings me back to the
idea that first prompted me to post in this thread: would the facility
to associate photos with messages (and addressbook entries) be helpful
in the context of a web-based mailer?

So, here's #4:

Accessiblemail uses flexible templates (XSLT) for all its presentation,
so it should be relatively straightforward to adapt for someone with a
proper understanding of your users' needs (i.e. not me).  If you wanted
to undertake such an exercise, I could consider supporting it.
