I would think that installing the ssh client would make router configuration much easier.  Of course, then you will likely need a keyboard, as well, but mine is as small as my 770.
The ssh client would also cirumvent the problems associated with ActiveX, flash, Java, etc.

I have given up on the built-in mail client, using mutt on my home server 95% of the time.  I only fire it up when I know I am going to be without connectivity for a while and have some mail to go through.  Even then, I will likely scan with mutt first and get rid of a number of messages quickly.

I have not tried, indeed, I am a bit afraid, to try the Google Docs & spreadsheets for this function.  It should be simple to forward a message with one of these docs to the appropriate import email address and then view via the browser; if it could handle it, and I worry that the 770 cannot.  Maybe it or the 800 would handle it just fine.  I need to check it out.

Also, I believe gnumeric is available for maemo.  I have also seen abiword, but cannot figure out how to install it.
