Personally, I'd use a combination of MTA and IMAP to achieve Exchange
"equivalence" in loose terms. However, for those who really *need*
Exchange features and Outlook integration HP OpenMail is apparently a
drop-in Exchange replacement. There is a Linux version which is free for
evaluation purposes, and you can upgrade the eval version to a full
license free of charge  if you're serving up to 50 users. Above that,
you have to pay, but I'd think it's be worth it to avoid the pain of
having to deal with Exchange.
