Have you looked at NetMail from Novell?  It is fairly low cost, runs on
linux and I believe it will meet your requirements.  If you're
interested, I can get you an eval copy for your testing.

If only it were that simple. When I posted the first question I forgot

to mention a couple of key items.

1. Access to shared and local addressbooks is prefered.
2. They want to continue to be able to use antivirus on the mail
3. They are cheap, so the less costly the better.
4. Needs to be mostly transparent to the end user.

I have looked at a couple of the programs/products that others on this

list have recommended. So far however, it seems that everyone wants you

to lay out at least 3 grand for a complete solution. If worse comes to

worse I will opt for the second option that we are looking at using.

Mail server running - postfix or sendmail as an MTA.
IMAP over ssl for accessing mail.
Horde web interface for checking mail remotely.

Still do not know how I would handle a shared address book ( ie to hold

employee email addresses ) but this would be a step in the direction we

want to take.

Sorry about not giving this information in the original message.
