could get very expensive in cases You have to rely on strong TLS security to the 
recipient in nowadays growing international business espionage practices 
and Your ISP MTA does not support it (as usual, only a few exceptions).
too few people understand and use S/MIME and the peer compatible PKI is 
too expensive for corps.

main reason for me running an own MTA.
so SORBS is blacklisting inet security, too.

and remember, the only reason for not having end users' MTAs broad is 
cause M$ doesn't deliver professional MTAs with window$. historically.
