No, it's not. Not a bit. One of the things my organization does is 
manage the email systems for our corporation (not a small one). and we 
set policy on email clients quite simply: "here are the ones we 
support. If you use something else, we wish you luck. If it doesn't 
work right, we hope you can fix it".

True, we can't FORCE them to use only supported software. Nor do I 
think you should try. but that doesn't make failures of that 
unsupported stuff MY (our) problem. It could well be there's a good 
reason we don't recommend you use it, after all....
