Hi nnizami,
Why don't you use Exchange 2000 or 2003 Standard Edition. Its a very good and simple solution for what you are talking about. As well messaging is a snap with this.

You can use a mail package that should still be free (it's been awhile since I looked at it) - it's called Mercury.  You can then use either Outlook or Pegasus (free) as the client.

Here's a link: http://www.pmail.com/overviews.htm

This package sends mail internally as well as externally.
