You could use a script to sniff out the browser and
display a message to Mac IE users notifying them that
MS has stopped supporting the browser they are using.
I am sure many end users do not understand the
security implications. Helping them understand this
with a simple message could help them convert to
either Safari or Firefox and most of them will be
thankful to you for letting them know.
