Kolab is a full replacement for Outlook/Exchange based on IMAP and
LDAP. Unfortunately, it can be a real bitch to set up. Once it works,
it keeps working.
If you want Outlook to use all features like shared calendaring and
such, you need a commercial plugin for each client. :-(
Follow the link for kolab-client.

Another not-so-far-away path to groupware in mixed environments: KDE
4.1 (June/July 2008) will be released for Linux and other UNIX-like
OSS systems *and* OSX and Windows. By the time it is released,
install kmail/kontact on *all* clients regardless of the operating
system, enable "Groupware" and voila - you have got it. Just a couple
of months away. ;-)
