One thing that I might add to the comments you have already received is 
that if you are wanting to communicate securely with people outside of 
your company, it has been my experience that there are many more people 
who use PGP than those who use S/MIME.  I was an early adopter of 
S/MIME . . . and for a long time the only person with whom I could 
communicate was me . . . ;-)  Since then, I have tried it a few more 
times, but it is still not very widely used.  And, personally, I think 
that PGP's web of trust model works very well . . .
