Notification on UNIX of Exchange new mail

A number of our Engineers have both a Linux machine and a PC running XP  on their desktop.  They use a switch box to toggle back & forth between the consoles.  Often they are on the UNIX console for hours at a time and then miss messages that pop up in Outlook.  Is there a tool that we can use so that Outlook can display the messages on their Linux machine?

Ok, I'm with the IMAP suggestion.  Anyone have a suggestion for a client that is quick & easy to install?  We just basically want a pop up on the linux console when a new message comes in.
Not sue what linux flavour you use, but try to see if you can get from here any

I strongly suggest, if you go with this imap suggestion, first try with only 1 user forfew days to make sure things are ok, and then give it to all.
Are they using a gui desktop environment on the linux boxes?  What I do is have a third monitor that my Linux box is on lined up next to my two Windows workstation monitors.   I use a program called Synergy that shares the keyboard/mouse/clipboard across the network.
