Since MS uses proprietary protocols, you probably won't find an
OSS drop-in replacement for Exchange.  You probably won't even 
find a free-as-in-beer replacement.

Since iCal support seems to be pretty weak in OSS, you might be 
stuck using Outlook, even if you do go with an Exchange replacement
that runs on Linux.
