Can you give us some idea of what sort of "collaboration" you are interested in ? I could probably come up with several dozen different sorts.

As Frank mentioned there are number of collaboration tools available. What actually are you looking for?? One of them is eCollab - an Enterprise Collaboration tool. You may check for more details.
Point out your needs so that i could give a more precise reply.

Hi Jacky,
No, eCollab is not open Source but the Messaging server used by ecollab is open source.You can check it on
Although eCollab satisfies all your required needs. We provide file sharing but not file Editing.
And you can check for some more tools on Collaboration Tools.
