Dan:

It turns out that it is Bank of America that is imposing the
prohibition on email and web-based transactions, rather than VISA. 
Indeed, VISA does not have any such problem with electronic
transactions. Bank of America, on the other hand, has a problem with
everything: cash, checks, credit cards, dogs, Thursdays, sun spots, and
so on.  It is a tribute to inertia that they remain in business.
