outlook2003 and linux


I have a client office that has several computers that use outlook 2003 as their e-mail client and and several POP accounts. They want to share calenders and all of the addition features of outlook 2003. I would like to implement an e-mail system in this office that can utlize the features of outlook 2003. What would be the more appropiate choice for a small business as a e-mail system? Can SENDMAIL, POSTFIX or OPENEXCHANGE handle this? These users are used to outlook.

postfix and sendmail as, as their homepages state, SMTP servers and nothing more. they are not supposed to be exchange replacements. openxchange is, as it's homepage states, an MS exchange replacement so does look to emulate the full functionality of exchange including calenders and the likes. not sure what we're meant to tell you that google couldn't there... outside of those three there are other calender projects which aim to be usable by outlook, check openconnector.org for one such example.

Can openexchange handle smtp traffic as well, in other words can it handle the whole show?

Mailserver
(There should be a SMTP Server and there must
be an IMAP Server. Tested successfully
with Postfix and Cyrus)
