I use Outlook 2000, but this is not a problem in my case, as I don't use 
Exchange.  If I did though, I could get around it by copying all my mail 
 from Exchange into a local .pst, hit the fantabulous "Reconfigure Mail 
Support" in Outlook and specify "Internet Only", then add the IMAP account 
and proceed as before.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions.
