How to make Exchange retrieve from an IMAP account?

Running W2K3 SBS with Exchange 2K3

Currently, I have 5 users retrieving email from this 1 IMAP account.  Generally with multiple access, along the line, the server times out.  I'm thinking due to all users tapping in at once it's faulting. Or maybe just a really junk server.  A thought crossed my mind, what if Exchange Server can retrieve from the IMAP server, and make the information available to the users that are on the network.  Everyone will be able to access the mailbox.  Sounds like an efficient method.

When the user corresponds (replies or forwards the email), it will come directly out of their Outlook 2K3 client.

So my question....Is it possible, if so, how to configure?
