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

don't always work in the latter.
