go to

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/exchange/exchange-public/fixes/Eng/Exchg5.5/

and download the 27 megabyte behemoth that is Microsoft Outlook for Macintosh, Exchange Server edition.

The readme says it'll run on a 68030 w/8MB RAM...

PS Exchange server also supports POP and IMAP, so if you just want no-frills email you can use Eudora or Netscape.

assuming the network that you are running is TCP\IP all you have to do is be running a recent version of Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer, have the Outlook web server running on the exchange server and access the Exchange server via the IP network with the browser in the form of either http://exchangeservername/exchange or http://ip_address_of_exchange_server/exchange. You may be set on using outlook but this is an easy way to simply implement this... and all you have to do is bookmark the page.

goodluck

Word to khemicals.

I forgot about that one...the web interface works pretty well in my experience, though it requires java and it not surprisingly likes Microsoft IE better than Netscape Navigator--I was unable to add attachments using Netscape; didn't try with IE.  And of course it has to be running on the exchange server, but that is no sweat.

OOps it looks like that URL got chopped; here's the full path:
