I'd be interested in what you find.  I've been kinda chansing this for a while 
without a lot of luck.

There are some that are not open source.  Samsung contact is probably the most 
mature of these.

Here are the ones I know of

http://opengroupware.org/en/index.html --  I don't know how ready this is.

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/  -- Not sure if this is going to be 
web based, but I know it is not ready.

http://www.suse.com/us/business/products/openexchange/index.html -- They'll 
sell this today, so I guess it is ready.  Much of it is open sourced--I'm not 
sure how much of it is not.  In any case, it is pricey.
