i've never used exchange before so I can't be of much help to you...

bottom line on the AD front..
samba3 can participate as a member server of an AD domain but
cannot be the domain controller.

You'd have to move all your users to the AD domain controller and join
the samba3 server to the domain or use winbind.

If you can avoid using AD do so - it'll just suck you further into the
microsoft stuff (which i assume you are trying to avoid with samba)
Hopefully you can run exchange on a non AD domain... (in which case you
can stick to released versions of samba)
