Hi rares_dumitrescu,
use Active Directory Users and Computers console, open "Find", then in the "Users, computers and groups" dialog, choose the Exchange tab, select "Show only Exchange recipients" and "users with Exchange mailbox". That should do the trick for you.

Hope it helps, Elbereth
Beware: the "Exchange" tab in ADUC is only available if you connect to the Exchange server, or if you have installed the Exchange administration tools on your machine.

The easiest way is to use an LDAP query. This is a very basic search, but should be sufficient for what you requested.
