Converting Exchange database?


Does anyone know if its possible to convert an Exchange 5.5 databse into something else(IMAP)?

Im looking to see if it would be woth while to change from Exchange to something runnig on Linux. Sendmail maybe or is there an Exchange equivalent? But one of the biggest problems is getting the mail from one place to another. I will not import/export each individuall mailbox.
If i cant do this, would it be possible to set up the Linux server with new empty mailboxes and run it between the Exchange server and outside, copying all mail that wen through for a few months? Just a vague idea ive just had.
Ability to restore individual mailboxes a plus but not essential.

The company will also want a group calendar type thing. It can be a seperate program but id prefer it not to be a web interface. I know that nobody will ever use this, just like they dont use it at the moment. But they cant see this.

It needs to be free, one of the main reasons of wanting to change is the cost of Exchange.

So any ideas or suggestions? Personal experience?

Thanks

Any
