The suggested Novell Connector (formerly Ximian) may be free but the Novell Desktop, which includes Novell Evolution (formerly Ximian Evolution) is not free. It may cost around $100 but I guess it would make your box run Novell Linux (a.k.a. Suse Linux) and not Fedora.

If you had POP or IMAP support available on your Exchange 2003 server, you could just run Fetchmail in Fedora and collect the messages and drop them off to mailbox in your Fedora, assuming that you run there a mail server like Sendmail.

By the way, I just checked my Fedora Core 4 and it comes with Evolution. You may already have the Evolution Connector to MS Exchange in your system, or you should be able to download the Connector for free.

An update to Evolution Connector for Fedora Core 3 is mentioned in a Fedora Update Notification which also has the download address.
