qmail-ldap http://www.nrg4u.com
Courier-MTA http://www.courier-mta.org

Both can use LDAP to get information about virtual users, so you can
query AD for it. You'll probably need to extend AD schema to fit all
necessary attributes though.

Sendmail does LDAP too, but I'm not sure about its feature-completeness.

Qmail-LDAP is more feature rich in area of controlling mail server from
LDAP. Courier has more advanced features as MTA.
