[linux-elitists] Groupware servers

A friend of mine has a problem, at his office, they're slowly migrating
from Windows to GNU/Linux on the desktops. He needs a groupware server
that does shared calendars and mail, and that works with Outlook. The
people who are still using outlook need that to work seamlessly until
they're migrated, which won't happen in the very short term.

He looked at SuSE's OpenExchange Server, but that installs a plugin for
Outlook, and works like POP, in that it moves mail to the local folders
instead of accessing them over the network. This is unacceptable for
him, so he's looking for something better.

So, are there free or reasonably priced proprietary MAPI servers that
preferably also do IMAP and iCal/WebCal for non-Outlook clients, and
that runs on Linux? Googling turns up very little.
