I'm not sure why people expect software beyond Solitaire, Pidgin or Thunderbird to be any easier to configure or maintain than, say, changing the spark plugs in your car.

Or harder yet, diagnosing the issue as the spark plugs to begin with. Cars have been around for a hundred years and they can still present a challenge to even highly skilled and trained mechanics.

Manage your expectations when you try to do something you aren't an expert in and you won't be disappointed.
