You can have an IMAP server authenticate against the Win2003 domain
controller using Kerberos and LDAP. It's been awhile since I did it,
but it's doable and Microsoft has a very nice HOWTO doc on this
The only two missing free pieces are the calendar and the address book.
The only non-Windoze product that works with Outlook is Scalix (I
think). It used to cost about the same as the Exchange license (as of
2-3 years ago). Obviously, it's much more stable, better, etc. It uses
Postfix for the MTA and Cyrus IMAP (very good) among other things.
If you are able to move your users away from Outlook and into using a
Web interface, Horde might be an option. It has both an address book
and a calendar, and of course the famous mail program, IMP. It's a
pretty good package.
