I have not used SoGo yet, but I have read good things about it from many 
admins. It is probably the only one free/open-source solution which 
works well with Outlook sync and with Thunderbird/Lightning sync. I plan 
to try it out soon.

Read this thread too: 

I have used Horde (in test mode, not in production) and it is good, but 
we had various issues, esp. when working with mobile devices. A bit 
complex in configuring / maintaining.

We have also tested briefly FengOffice, which is slightly different: a 
groupware application, but it offers a web-based mail client with the 
ability to define multiple accounts.

Other free groupware projects incorporating mail functionality: kolab, 
egroupware etc.

We are currently still using SquirrelMail. I hate the GUI 
(aesthetically), but it works well and there are plugins for about 
everything one would ask. If only someone could create a nice 
contemporary GUI (HTML 5) for it!

If someone wants Outlook / Thunderbird sync functionality, I would 
suggest starting from SoGo (even though I have not tested it yet).

There are other open-source systems too which are not free: Zarafa, 
Zimbra, Open-Xchange etc.
