Have you looked at the SME server disto from http://www.contribs.org? 
It installs as an appliance-like setup managed through a simple web 
interface.  The code is mostly centos and includes hoard webmail running 
over dovecot with maildir storage out of the box.  It doesn't have a 
shared calendar or other groupware components in the base setup and it 
is somewhat difficult to modify the already-customized configuration but 
there are a number of contributed add-ons that might provide them. 
Unfortunately the site seems to be down for maintenance right now so I 
can't check on them.  Anyway, for a few hundred people, the setup really 
is as simple as answering a few questions and adding the users and it 
can also provide file/print/web/vpn services.
