Are you running Mailman on the Exchange (or another Windows) server?  If 
so, is it with in a Cygwin environment?  Or are you running Mailman on a 
different unix box?

Either way (Cygwin or a different unix box) look in to fetchmail as it 
can download mail from a POP3 server (Exchange) and pass it in to a 
program via it's --mta command.  As such, I think you could have 
fetchmail get email from Exchange via POP3 and then pass it in to 
Mailman directly (similar to how the mm-handler script for Sendmail works).

Then it would just be a matter of setting something up to call fetchmail 
periodically to download mail and pass it to Mailman.
