Start with the servers

I have to agree that the most sensible thing to do, as demonstrated successfully by many people, is to migrate the servers away from Windows first. Once you have control over your infrastructure, rather than having Microsoft's products dictating all the terms, you'll find that the Windows clients can happily work with Samba, and with various e-mail and collaboration solutions. If it's done right, the migration could probably be done almost transparently, or at least with no more effort than I've seen when people have been horsing around with Exchange Server migration.

And as you're a KDE person, Tom, why not drop Evolution and run something like Kontact instead? That'll save you a load of hassle, too.
