To be honest, I doubt that we'd pay for this. If we're going to go to the
trouble of setting up a Conversant server, we'll go the extra step and set
up a mail server. Purely as a developer I might be interested, but even
then I suspect most developers are geeky enough to want to do it themselves.

Probably not what you want to hear, but for trial users it might help to
offer this for free, otherwise it's just a barrier to entry. You can then
ask them to pay up when the trial period expires if they plan to continue.

Just my 2 cents.
