If they don't yet have Exchange there's still hope ;-)

OK, to wean them off Exchange is probably impossible, but for new users 
Open-Xchange is (one) possibility. It so happens that they (OX) were here 
today because we (Cologne University) are considering the "Hosting

our existing Cyrus infrastructure. We are now waiting for an offer.
