Microsoft Exchange Server is not only a mail server it is a group ware.

there are others free
http://sourceforge.net/projects/acsmtp


there are many but not free

and surge mail it is free for 5 users

there are no so much clients for hmail at the moment but it is a good product and have all necessary features which are either not included in other products or do extra cost like antivirus and antispam dnsblacklists etc.
it is a good product and have support.
Personally, if you have to use Windows I'd advise XMail.  It's been around for years, has a community, lots of addons and plugins as well as being open source.
