I've been evaluating some packages for my employer the last few months.
The two products I have narrowed it down to my needs are eGroupware and
So far, I'm leaning towards Zimbra, because it seems to offer a nice
e-mail system with an easy to use interface for users. There is a
community edition and a commercial edition.
I too am currently using Postfix and Squirrelmail, and would like to
keep using Postfix as the primary transport system. There is a way to
configure Zimbra to act as a secondary system forwarding mail to
Postfix, but I can't find the link right now.
There are also methods to migrate to Zimbra from Squirrelmail using some
imapsync scripts to migrate the mailboxes.
By itself though, it seems to have a nice and powerful mail system with
all the features of anti-virus, spam, etc.
eGroupware works great too, so make sure you check it out, but I'm
thinking of leaning towards Zimbra for my needs.
Check them out.
