2. Exchange presumably stores its messages in a MS proprietary format

far from the plain text formats that MHonArc can deal with.  However, I
believe that Exchange has a POP3 server, so you could (1) create accounts
in Exchange to receive messages destined for MHonArc (2) run a POP3 mail
retriever to talk to the server, saving messages in text form (there are
such retrievers in Perl), and (3) have MHonArc convert the files created by
step 2.

   Yep, it sure does -- a MAPI storage provider (usually COM).  We do
something similar for an EMWACS server.  Set up an account, add it to the
list and let MHonarc do the rest.  Works great!
