Email Server Features

Hello gurus,

After we have tried Mdaemon and MailEnable we are going again to change our email server software.

I have been asked by the administration to provide a features list ,ie what should we be having in a email server , in order to go again
fishing for a new software. They are looking now into ZARAFA or Zimbra on Linux... But they need from me a features list (features we would need) so that they ask for the Linux gurus to install the email server as per this list.
I really don't know what to write in that report. Any help ?
