Businesses are in business to make money at whatever product/service they're selling.  All technology is in support of that; IT needs to understand that overriding concept.  2 rungs up from them, they could care less if it's *nix or windows or a rat running on a wheel so all of our preferences for one thing over another are a complete waste.

Yes and in particular, the cost of retraining all the staff to use a new MUA.

On the other hand, once you've set an SME up with a server running SBS, the average end user at least understands it enough somewhat get by. It's easy for us as 'experts' to sit in Ivory Towers saying how *nix & sendmail/postfix is so much better but the average business doesn't want the hassle of learning how, as that takes time away from whatever their core business is.
