Microsoft Exchange is what I and probably most others would recommend without knowing much about your requirements.  If you could provide more information about your requirements then we could provide you alternatives.

Www.pmail.com Mercury Mail.

There are ways to run sendmail, postfix within windows, but the OS overhead and experience suggests using an open source OS on older workstations make many more options available.

Your requests suggests that the email server must run on window. There are guides on installing/setting up a mail server using Linux.
Mail toaster.etc.

You need to define what functionality you need/want.
Antivirus, anti-spam, AD tie-in? Etc.

Zimbra has a community version.

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

Will Zimbra work with Windows?
I need a full packaged Email Server, to work with operating systems like Windows 7 64bit, Server 2008 R2, SBS 2011 etc..   if it includes anti spam that would be fine but not necessary.

Currently there is no way to install Zimbra on Windows based system, they do not have a Windows Version of Zimbra server.

I have found hMailServer a good alternative on windows beside exchange, as far as I know hMailServer most likely does not have the exact same functionality as Postfix/Zimbra.
