In general you don't need Linux or MS specifically to use a smart phone.

Depending on which model phone you get (Windows Mobile 5 based or Palm OS based) I think either can do POP3 email.

Where you'll get in to platform dependency is when your users want to sync with Outlook Calendars or transport files.
