We looked at PHPgroupware a long time ago (2003?) and it did have allot
of features but not a very strong core and some parts of it seemed
unfinished.   We also were considering throwing in the Open Source towel
on groupware and going with Notes.  Fortunately that was the moment that
OpenGroupware was released as Open Source,  we've been using that ever
since and are very happy.  It is fast, minimal requirements, uses Cyrus
as the mail store (*very* hast and feature-ful), and has a solid set of
core features.  The WebUI certainly isn't the sexiest but it is robust
and has a great XML-RPC API.  

But if I was going to go with a paid solution I'd go with Notes over the
other commercial offerings.
