Sure.   But there's a lot of inertia, and some justification, behind their operational practice and expectations.   Treating them as if they're newbies probably won't work well.

FWIW, the biggest concerns I have about that world aren't about email, they're about security.    But I'm becoming sensitive to just how often the assumptions of the "mainstream Internet" world clash with those in the IIoT world, and also why the practices and solutions from the former don't always work in the latter.
