There are alternative ways to circumvent that (e.g. look at
Retroshare, which does not need installations on a server, but
will not support email to users outside of the Retroshare network).
But, we were talking about good old email.

It depends on whether there are technical users in your organisation,
or you can get outside support. I think there would be value in
creating a support portal where vetted volunteers would be matched
to end users and organisations looking for support.
I notice I did not receive answers to my questions yet, so
there's little point in digging into all possible branches.
(One scenario: in case of end user hosted email, I personally would look
into a cheap VMWare box (e.g. HP Microserver, booting free
ESXi from the internal USB stick) and deploy a virtual image,
e.g. Zimbra -- perhaps someone should look into packaging
into a free VMWare appliance that is easy to deploy even for novice
users -- yes, this still will need support, but much less so).
