My users are very non-technical and they are all very used to Outlook
Express. Therefore I want to take one step at a time and move them to
Outlook as it is fairly similiar to OE and thus the learning curve will
be fairly flat.

However, I have users on Apple Mac's who may use other software and at
the end of the day I want to create a system that does care what the end
users uses to send/receive mail. As long as it's virus and spam scanned,
that's all I'm really bothered about
