Thanks all.  Interesting run down.  I'm looking for a Free solution, so
I think I'll give Zimbra a run first.  Main groupware features I'm after
are calendars and email.  Not sure what else would add much value for a
smaller enterprise.

The webmail also works very well and uses ajax (The same thing that gmail uses on their webmail). the ZCS allows you to have users see your own template and interface to make it look like your own project. I don't know the costs.
