I'm currently using the Mail server from Kerio (www.kerio.com). 
Depending on what antivirus package you use, it will integrate into 
Kerio Mail Server.  I've been running it for about 18 months and have 
had no problems.

It integrates into my Win2k domain and means I didn't have to create 
duplicate accounts etc.  I am very pleased with its performance.

To play the devil's advocate, they are having problems with the 
SpamAssassin module at the moment and this has caused some problems with 
the handling of spam.  This should be fixed in the next/latest version 
(from memory).
