Zimbra is a Microsoft Exchange Server compatible groupware server, for 
use with Microsoft Outlook in enterprise mode, with features like 
calendar scheduling, shared mail folders, groupware applications 
development, etc.     

If you want a conventional POP/IMAP mail server, dovecot (or cyrus) and 
postfix (or sendmail) is just fine.

since you didn't state what your parameters are (is this for a few 
users, or for 100s/1000s, etc), its pretty hard to make recommendations.
