Easy conversion from existing Exchange servers.

This is not something I personally care or know much about as I
have never voluntarily used any Microsoft Windows systems or
software, but there are many who do.

We have migrated such customers from Exchange to Zimbra, and use
Samba as well with good results.  Most of these systems run
Zimbra in a VMware Server CentOS virtual machine on a CentOS host.
The VM runs only Zimbra, while everything else of interest runs
on the host machine.
