I'm guessing that perhaps you placed this question in the SBS Small Business Server Zone by mistake then?  Because SBS is a Microsoft Windows Server.

But just to give you a hand here... are you looking for a hosted product? or in-house?  Because if hosted, I can recommend www.centraldesktop.com or http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifehack/design-an-online-workflow.html  At least you can look at those for other ideas as well.

If you're already using Exchange, why switch?  Is this an Small Business Server 2003?  If so, then why not just deploy Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager?  BCM is included with either Office Small Business or Professional... and is a completely customizable with a fully accessable API, but the base product is fairly good as is.

Then why aren't you registered as a Microsoft Partner so you can use Action Pack Licensing to run your entire business with for only $299.00 per year?  That has to be a much lower cost than anything, even open source.

I can't recommend anything else because I don't use anything else.
