Just downloaded ubuntu server which i'll use primarily as a file & print server but was wondering if i could use the mail server as an MS exchange server for MSOutlook clients? A long shot i suppose?

there's lots of options there, this would be your biggest problem ;)

email is email, so you can't go wrong there.
what kind of functionality do you need more? shared calendaring and stuff? you would have to look to groupware packages with something called an "outlook connector"

*edit*
kolab?
zimbra?
opengroupware?
phpgroupware?
unison?

Hmmm ok thanks, I'll investigate. I want centralised email, tasks, callendar and contacts. Managing several different installations is getting tedious especially when PCs crash / get stolen / etc. and adding new machines to the network. Having 1 place to back up everyone's email and all the advantages of shared info is attractive.
