1/. Well Outlook doesn't have an Exchange feature but you can set up Exchange to use POP3 account instead and everyone can download the messages to their hard drives.

2/. If it is Outlook you just configure the Exchange Server settings. If Outlook Express you c an use POP3 to hook up to Exchange. Exchange supports IMAP but never used it myself.

3/. No you just create the accounts on your Exchange server. As long as all the MX records are pointing to the Exchange server everything will be dandy.

Correction...

"1/. Well Outlook doesn't"

Should be

"1/. Well Outlook Express doesn't"

Also in regards to number 1 you lose all your Exchange features if they use Outlook Express such as mailbox sharing, calendar sharing pubic folders, global address list. So Outlook is always the better option.
