You might want to take a look at Horde Webmail Edition 5.x [1]. It is 
not just Webmail but a comprehensive Groupware, offering Calendar, 
Address Book, Task Lists, Wiki and so on. But it can be customized to 
only show what you really need. My experience is that it is very easy to 
use and can be set up with reasonable effort via ports[2]. The current 
version offers ActiveSync, CalDAV, CardDAV for Synchronization with 
mobile and desktop clients as well as a nice looking functional Web 

We use Horde 5.x since ~2 years now and made good experiences with it.

Kind regards,
