in reply to Management that just doesn't understand

A bunch of people have said useful things.

Email is probably not the way to deal with this situation. You should schedule face time with whomever made the decision.

If there are dysfunctional politics, it is unlikely anyone will clue you in writing. The odds are much better tha somebody will (perhaps confidentially) tell you the real issue in person.

It has been my experience that email is not a good way to get willfully non-technical types to understand the important nuances. If somebody doesn't understand the difference between RAM and disc, they aren't going to bother with your email, but might pay attention when you make little circles with your finger to simulate a spinning disc.

Hope this helps
