On most of the multi-user machines of which I'm currently aware 
(again, many fewer than ~10 years ago), mail often `works', but 
local delivery for users does not exist and is not desired. That is, 
users can send mail, but do/can not receive it on the local machine.

Even though you aren't sure there is a clear line,
we might find one if we look.

Absolutely.  I hope my memories and recent experiences have been
at least somewhat helpful in figuring out where to look.
