I agree.  We are doing good just to get them to send through our mail
relays to get reliable delivery to the Internet.  They understand the risk
of network issues but they don't always understand how to setup proper
mail routing.

Most run Windows servers so I try to get them to setup an hMailServer
as a simple internal mail relay that smarthosts to my servers when I can.

We have a large number of customers all over the United States so this
would be a full time job for multiple people if we wanted to do this
correctly everywhere.  I do the best I can when I learn of problems
escalated to my team.
