HI Ago,

Thanks for that, yes I guess I should have been more specific, since 
most of my userbase are hung up on "must have" outlook, I guess outlook 
integration is a plus point, as is a good web interface.

AD integration is of no interest to me either way, but access to shared 
contacts and calendars is....

As a Micro$oft partner (cough) I have access to Exchange for very low 
cost, but not the enterprise version, and can install exchange with my 
eyes closed, but I have several VPN sites to consider and don't want to 
spend money on Microsoft Enterprise exchange and have all the baggage 
that goes with it (eg. backup software and the general bloat of M$ exchange)

So in short a groupware system that can run multiple servers at remote 
sites (as enterprise connected exchange), has a webmail facility and 
doesn't need to integrate with MS AD...
