I do understand Andreas point of view using a provider for mail because
the university doesn't want or can't spend any money on this technology.
My knowledge about universities is that although they might not have
a budget for IT, they really should have, they also if it for electricity,
gas, water, light pay the teachers.... IT should be part of that budget.

I also think that it's a universities responsibility is to have a method
to do spam scanning /blocking and keep any other unwanted mail out of
there system. For a universities perspective I also think it's there
responsibility to think about keeping porn out of there system (specially
porn with kids), illegal software MP·'3 etc. By heaving there own
mail system in house, they also have the possibility to track and
find out who was the victim (in case of porn), and where the mail
was send from etc etc, thus heaving a method to log activity.

It's under some situations good to give out complex technology
to other parties, however I don't think that google is the right partner for
organizations of this size.
