I don't know what your budget is for this, but there is GroupWise (Novell) and
also the Lotus stuff. The Lotus server is available for LInux, although I
haven't used it and thus can't recommend it from personal use. Religious wars
seem to develop around Lotus stuff.
GroupWise seems to run OK, although it has been a resource hog in the past. It
does support calendars, appointments and all sorts of goodies. I don't know much
about the enhancements to more recent versions, but I've been told that
it does support a web interface and POP3 now. I believe the server component
runs on NetWare, but it may be available on other platforms by now.
