Have you considered using Google Apps as an email solution? This way you have plenty of space and a familiar interface. There's a free plan that allows you to create up to 50 email accounts (at least that's what I remember). – alex Sep 9 '09 at 10:08
What email clients are you using? How many users? How many computers? What versions of Windows? – Kez Sep 9 '09 at 10:27

I would recommend xmail as a production intranet email server on windows because it is very easy to configure and administer while being quite feature rich. Mercury is a bit tougher to administer, but has more features.

@tbscmc : I liked the XMail and tools. But I am going to stick with hMailServer currently. just because of matter of preference. – Mahin Sep 22 '09 at 9:41

I'd definitely take a look at SmarterMail if I were you. I've had great success with it in the past.

Hmm, pop support, imap support, easy to run?

Mercury mail transport is what i ran for quite a while, before i managed to get a dedicated box to run linux on. I'd also note it plays well with quite a few AV solutions as well. Its also been around for ages, and has been fairly actively maintained the whole time as well.

Have you considered Microsoft Exchange or a hosted Exchange option? While this is an expensive option, it provides a stable system which is compatible with a variety of Windows Mobile devices, iPhones and provides a great small business scheduling systems through Microsoft Outlook.
