in WHICH company the users itself do setup their mail-accounts?
the job of the IT department is setup and confifure the machines
suaully a user must not config anything at all

if they users setup their mail-clients and software
by theirself you are really not needed

so rcap like avahi is not for the users in a comapany
it is for the sake of the lazy admin

i benefit them by setup their machines at all
this includes amil accounts
