WHAT?  A Linux Emulator?  Something that emulates Linux AND exchange?  

You mean something to run Exchange ON Linux?

You would either have to run Windows in a VMWare virtual machine OR try one of the third party Exchange-like products, such as Open Xchange - http://mirror.open-xchange.org/ox/EN/community/

> emulate exchange server

   Are you talking about the M$ Exchange server similar product on Linux platform?

   Then there is a called OpenExchange, which is developed by SuSE now is part of Novell product.

   As for Outlook similar product on Linux, you can use Evolution with exchange connector.
So Evolution can talk to M$ exchange/openexchange server.
   RedHat Linux packs with free Evolution in it.

Open exchange is good, but is there any product that can replace exchagne server and does not need CALs as we already have got exchange client access licenses

You mean M$ Outlook licenses?
OpenExchange did support M$ Outlook client (Well, they didn't claim for Outlook 2002 or Outlook 2003 anyway).
