Hi every body, my question is the following :

I need to configure on a Exchange 2007 SP1 server a relay for Imap Mail.

What I want to do, is configuring the exchange server in order that it had to connect to an external imap server (like imap.aaaa.com) to take mail on it for each users with their credentials (login & password of external imap mailbox).

Once mail on the exchange server, users received them with MAPI protocol on their Outlook.

I've search on Internet, but haven't yet find the solution.

Not possible.
Exchange cannot poll an external IMAP server to collect email. There are POP3 connectors available, but those would be third party tools.
