To avoid confusion, everything software package i mentioned is open source,
but Zimbra and the following also have closed source versions.
For the email needs, a Customer Relationship Management system may be
overkill, but there are several listed on sourceforge running on Linux and
Windows.  The one i have heard the most about is SugarCRM.

For the list of software awarded the sourceforge community choice awards, see
this list http://sourceforge.net/awards/cca/<http://sourceforge.net/awards/cca/>
