Oracle Messaging and Calendaring Recommendation

I get many requests to help people who are running some sort of messaging and calendaring system on Oracle/SUN and so I need to learn more about this environment. Sometimes, the people who ask me to help them are using an iPlanet or SUN JES system. I know these systems are dated.

This is an initial question and I will probably post more because it will spawn more. I need guidance on which direction I should go in order to setup a test environment with an Oracle email and calendaring system. I am not too familiar with Unix or Linux, or Oracle databases.

I suppose I need to start here. What do I need in order to install a basic email and calendaring system that is on an Oracle platform, and a system that I can use a browser to accesss the user accounts? Also, which OS do I need to install? I will be installing this test environment under VMWARE and all the software I will be testing will be demo software. Please point me in the right direction so that I know what to install, and what would also be the easiest path to do for a Windows guy.

Thank you,

Thank you for these suggestions and links. I have just finished installing Windows 2003 Server and will be installing Oracle shortly. So, I will create a separate EE question on guidance on how to setup the Oracle Database. It is related to this question, however, unless you don't mind me dragging this one out it is best to create a different question because it is specificially for database installation.
