    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:

    This package sends mail internally as well as externally.

    Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back
