As a policy, authenticated SMTP helps cut down on folks sending SPAM and allows the ISP to track which account is sending what type of email content for further demographic study. While authenticated SMTP is good for the ISP, it is not a configuration supported out of the box by most Linux distributions. This means that all those system emails and log reports emailed by root never make it anywhere anymore.
