Not sure if this will help you, but

There are 3 ways:
1. In UNIX box forward the mail for your employees to Exchange Server (just put .forward file in their home directories containing their Exchange Server e-mail)
2. Use ETRN - this works only on dial-up connections
3. Use 3rd party software (some of them are using POP3 protocol for retrieving mail which is not available in native Exchange Server)
