comment Windows 2003 SMTP virtual server, why emails are not delivered?
Agree with Keith. You should perform the procedure specified in 153119, but from the Windows Server, to an external SMTP server. Use a well-known public smtp server, such as google's gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com. If the test results in a connection denied, your ISP or network team is probably blocking output SMTP.

comment Exchange server replacement that runs on Linux
The Google Apps option is a great option to consider, especially for small to mid-size business. I've used it for several small domains, as well as assisted a medium-sized University in transitioning their mail systems, all with positive results. Just be careful with any custom requirements. If you need to archive email, or run concurrent mail systems, the complexity can increase dramatically. Just make sure to perform due diligence for your requirements before making the switch.

comment Win98/DOS losing connections to Server 2003
For testing purposes, could you run the Samba server with no domain connectivity (perhaps even in security=share mode), manually map the shares, and see if the problem persists. Just wondering if you can verify it is an active directory problem, or something else. I wonder if Windows 98 is having a hard time dealing with the size of the share.
