If you're solely talking about e-mail, both Exchange and Lotus are usually overkill. Simple standards-based servers could do well, and host as many domains and client types (using POP/IMAP) as you like.
In that market, there are quite a few. The archetypal are Sun (ex-NetScape) and its descendant Novell NetMail, but with tools like Pegasus, Eudora (serverversions, not readers) etc. you could as well have a great value for money!

At your service,

Take in consideration a Linux server - Slackware:
- squid - proxy
- Apache - web server
- qmail - mail server
- spamassassin - antispam
- clamav - antivirus
- squirrelmail - webmail (multi virtual domains)
- firewall
- etc.
Many plugins and options are available.

No money!

For Windows based e-mail, I'd look seriously at iMail (http://www.ipswitch.com, with the Declude Anti-spam & anti-virus add-ins (http://www.declude.com). Price is not bad, and it runs on fairly modest hardware (though you don't want to skimp on the disk channel)

I would agree with IMAIL it is very easy to use and administer to. Specially if you have only 8 domains, all the other Mail server software would be overkill.

Take a look at Kerio. You can add AD extensions so that when you add a user to W2-3K, they are added to Kerio mail. I looked seriously at Exchange, and have it, but dumped it. It is too tied in to W2-3. Kerio works great as a standalone, handles multiple domains, and even better if you want to implement it at several sites, forwarding to a main server. All your users will think...what fast service. I tried the "free" stuff", tried Linux etc but we just don't have the qualified staff to manage it.
