You cannot have Exchange on a Novell server, you need a different computer.
Just install NT4 (as a PDC) with SP5, than Exchange 5.5 with SP3 and the Exchange clients on the computers.

You can use Groupwise, which is Novell's e-mail solution.

You should install the Exchange client on the Novell clients (which are just Win9x machines) in order to receive mails with them.

MX client means the way Exchange will get the mails from the ISP.

I cannot. You have to install Client for Microsoft Networking to connect to an NT server, but you don't need it for Exchange itself.

BTW: You can make Comment, if you don't want to modify the original Question.

A pre-requisite of MS Exchange is for it to be installed on an NT domain.
All MS Exchange clients will need an NT account in order to access their mailboxes.

The only way round this would be to install MS Exchange on an NT PDC with IIS 4.0 installed and setup Outlook Web Access.

This would mean that clients could access their email using a standard web browser + IP address of the Exchange server.

This is ALL you can do with your setup - something like Groupwise would be far more efficient as it can use inherent IPX/SPX protocols to ensure fast delivery and low network usage.

I think OWA would be an overkill for a LAN-based email system as it would up bandwidth requirements, but that's ALL you can do unless each Novell client logs onto an NT domain (install NDS for NT on each client !).
