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.
