Because it's there?  I dunno.  In truth, I don't really need one.  I
only have one account (from work) and since it's IMAP, I have no need to
set up a server ever again.  I have a Squirrelmail frontend to it, so I
don't even need webmail (and soon, my work will have one up, so I won't
have to keep that up).  And the account is backed up nightly, so I don't
have to fret about that.

I suppose it's just peer pressure, so I guess I would jump off a bridge
if everyone else did.
