If your Exchange server has support installed for POP3 or IMAP, you can connect to it through Outlook Express very simply.

POP3 is setup just like you setup for any other POP3 email server on the Internet. Just supply the server name, the login and password.

If you are wanting to connect via IMAP, you need to choose the server type as IMAP when you setup the account. Type in the server name, and in the account login, you will need to add the login usually as follows: <domain>\<account>\<mailbox> (ie - acmeinc\administrator\postmaster). Once you successfully login via IMAP, you will get a screen asking you what IMAP folders you want to have accessible in Outlook Express. These folders will be seen in addition to the normal Inbox, Outbox, Sent Items, etc.  You also need to remember that with IMAP servers, the mail doesn't come into your Inbox, but rather into the IMAP folder Inbox.

Good luck. Hope this all helped.
