Sorry, but no can do.  In order to take advantage of Public Folders, Global Address, and the rich features of Exchange you must use Outlook 97, 98, or 2K.

It can be done as a POP3/SMTP client, but neo_mvps is correct that you can't use all the functionality with Outlook express. Id doesn't support the IMAP protocol for sharing.
Just make sure your Exchange Server is supporting Internet Mail, POP3, and SMTP transfers, and set up your account accordingly. We were doing it here, but Outlook Express never reliably connected to Exchange because Exchange demands authentication to NT unless you have clear text passwords installed. It's more headache than it's worth, the client will have to upgrade if they want to share Calendars, etc.

The address book can be accessed by setting up your Exchange server in OE as a Directory Service with the server type being LDAP.  That saves time in manually creating an address book file for OE.  Just a bit of extra info.
