Comment XMPP/Jabber (Score 1) 360

It sounds like XMPP (also called jabber) is what you need. XMPP is an open standard for instant messaging, and there are free/open source implementations for both clients and servers. One option for servers is jabberd. One option for a client is Pidgin (which runs in Windows and Linux).

Can you give examples of good Exchange replacements?

Have a look at the PostPath Email and Collaboration Server. It is a mail server that runs on Linux and acts as a drop in replacement for Exchange (i.e. it implements the MAPI protocol so no special plugins are needed). They were recently acquired by Cisco, so I'm not sure what that has done to the availability of their server.

Admitting my biases, I am former employ of PostPath.
