Then show them how at risk they are by plugging one or two of their emails into fellow Auzzie InfoSec celeb Troy Hunt’s site https://haveibeenpwned.com/ (yes this is safe to hand over your email to).

Sorry, never ever plug a clients email into someone else’s website, even if someone on a forum says it is safe to do so. You will be the one responsible for any outcome, sure this may be a safe site, but the next one suggested as being safe may not be. If the client started getting Spammed the day after, even if it didn’t come from this site, you will be blamed.

Treat their email address as you believe they should treat their password.
