What directory server you need? Windows Active directory or just an LDAP directory for users information?
There is commercial solutions, take a look at sendmail.com or seek commercial support for on of the popular Linux mail servers, namely Exim and Postfix.
I am a mail server expert, I do large scale mail setup with 1,000,000+ users, spanning multiple distributed servers, all using Linux and open source software.
for 1000+ users, you will need one dedicated server, two if you want high availability, many options are available, but first you have to set your target and define your requirements precisely.
