+12 on trying to use the phone.

I think it would be useful if ARIN had a closed email system that
provided a POP/IMAP mailbox (and SMTP submit port) for every POC.

Closed, meaning it won't send email outside of it (except, perhaps to
other RIRs systems).   If you aren't a POC, then you have no business
talking to other POCs, to keep out the spam.  This would be a small
admission that Internet email via MX is dead (and I hate that idea), but
it would make life easier.

I know that there was a system of SIP phones where I could dial an ASN
as the phone number and talk to that NOC, but I don't recall what
happened to it.
