online meeting/colaboration software

I have been asked to research software which will enable virtual meetings, and ongoing colabaration.  What is wanted, is for ppl to be able to post documents, comment on them, have non-realtime meetings.  I would envision a forum type environment, where documents can be displayed as well.  

The goal is to eliminate the need to have a room full of leaders at any set interval, and instead have a meeting space where ideas can be shared on an ongoing basis.  Was thinking about SharePoint, but was also hoping for some other candidates.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you looked at Google Wave? (google.com/wave) It's a great collaboration tool provided by Google and is absolutely free.

I haven't until now.  The problem I see with it (from the 30 seconds I just spent on it) is that there could be sensitive documents, that we would not want to leave our network...
