If the domain is mixed mode, the net rpc vampire should work.
But if it's a native domain, other than some pwdump2 black
magic and incense, a new domain is stil easiest in small

Best of luck over the weekend :-)

I use fetchmail+procmail.  Grab the mail from exchange
via IMAP and use procmail for local delivery to $HOME/Maildir/
