When I last evaluated it three years ago (Sun One), it seemed like it was
aimed squarely at telcos and other large enterprises -- a LOT of work to get
it all seamlessly working together on a single system for a small
deployment. At that time, the various pieces weren't that well integrated;
you had to create the user in one location, provision for mail in another,
provision for calendar in yet another -- it was maddening.

Pretty solid services though, but I didn't do a lot of examination on the
security front.
