Open-Xchange is a nice one, It could be painfull to install so I have  put
together a CD, based on CentOS 44 with OX and lost more, you will be up and
running in about 30 minutts

You may find more information on my website http://www.nnortux.no

I have made one with CentOS 5 allso, but at the moment, my impression is
that CentOS 5 is a bit inmature, lots of the modules dont work, so until I
got all modules working try it with CentOS 4.4

Enjoy
