1)configure SMTP on exchange side (they call it Internet Mail, I believe)

2) configure fetchmail on Linux side to get mail via pop and "smtp" it to exchange server (look at the fetchmail options and you'll understand)

3) Configure exchange to deliver mail via the Linux server

4) Configure Linux MTA (probably sendmail) to spool mail

5) configure ppp on Linux to despool mail ande fetch mail whenever pppd comes up (/etc/pppd/ip-up.local)

6) schedule (via crontab) to get pppd up and running periodically

[7) optionally setup diald ;-) ]

There are several ways to configure every thing I've mentioned above, but I need to know your Linux distribution, versions of kernel and packages... etc.

Good luck
