I'm also maintaining my own email system for my department. We are using Imail Server from Ipswitch. Itís reliable, affordable, and easy-to-use messaging system. It only runs on a window platform. Itís features include web messaging, web calendaring, supports 128 bit SSL encryption, supports SMTP, POP3, and IMAP4, it allows you to host mail for multiple domains on a single server, it has unlimited user options, you can create mailing lists, you can setup mail delivery rules, and it also comes with an anti-Spam feature. Has a built-in monitoring and notification service if a service goes down. It has served and continues to serve the entire well. Itís easy to administer and I have been particularly happy with it, no sleepless nights.
The support is great.
Below is the link for those who are interested.

Just love it and itís not expensive.

>I'm one of the system administrators on campus maintaining my own email
>system for my college.  Here at MSU-DCL, we currently use Groupwise 6.5
>running on a Netware server for our email, as well as
>calendaring/scheduling, and some room resource mangement.  As happens
>every so often, I've been asked to revisit the question of what email
>system we are using, and look around at the available alternatives. It
>is unlikely that we would move our faculty and staff to the new
>mail.msu.edu system because it lacks calendaring features, so I'm
>looking at other commercial and open source systems.
>
>To start, I'd like to ask the members of this group if you currently
>are running your own email system, and you're willing to share
>information about what you use for your email?  I know there are other
>MSU colleges and departments that don't rely on Pilot for their email,
>and I'm curious to know what your experience has been with other email
>systems such as Exchange/Outlook, open source, or other commercial email
>servers and applications (with version numbers where possible.) I'd also
>like to know what your general experience has been working with the
>product you use, and any challenges you've had in supporting the
>product. If you don't wish to share this information with the group, but
>are willing to share information, please respond to me directly and I
>will keep that information confidential if you so indicate.
>
>Since I wouldn't ask without being willing to disclose my own
>information:  here at the Law College, Groupwise was the system of
>choice here before I took over systems administration in December of
>2001. The Groupwise system has successfully served our email and
>calendar needs for the two years that I've been here.  Most staff use
>calendar features to schedule meetings, and we also use the resource
>feature to create resource records for our classrooms.  The calendaring
>system is also used to schedule rooms available for events and special
>functions held at the college.  While we have technology staff trained
>in creating IDs and doing some of the day-to-day administration, it is
>my responsibility to also handle server maintenance, patches, and
>upgrades. Other than a particularly nasty crash we had in late
>October/early November, it has been a solid performer for us, and
>handles most of our needs quite well.  We have a moderate number of
>users (approximately 200 live users plus resource accounts), and most
>are well satisfied with the features in the product.
>
>I am curious to hear about other's experiences with their own email
>systems, whether you use Groupwise or any other product for your own
>email server.  I thank you in advance for any information you are
>willing to share.
