When I worked at a place that used Exchange I could use any generic IMAP
client to read mail, and any LDAP client to query the Exchange global
address book. Other people used POP3 to get their mail. I don't know if
these things are all enabled by default in Exchange or if they require
extra configuration, but it's worth trying. I know that mutt can connect
to IMAP servers, I think recent versions of pine can too. fetchmail can
also pull mail down via POP3 or IMAP.
