Please avoid cross-posting without a good reason, or at least ask pardon for it.

msynctool and/or fetchmail might be an option.

In any case you need an agent who can pop the mail and push it to
another place, it has nothing to do with your MTA. It's more like MUA
to MUA, pardon my french. That is precisely whet fetchmail was created
for, but I don't know anything about the Exchange ActiveSync
protocol(s) to know if fetchmail could directly use it. AFAIK the
Exchange ActiveSync protocol was built for high latency low bandwith
networks, so maybe you need something more specific and _perhaps_ you
can interface _that_ to fetchmail somehow. Maybe something that sits
in between Exchange ActiveSync and delivers an off-the-shelf protocol
such as imap (if you want to manage folders you will need imap or
better), somthing like:

[ Exchange Active Sync ] <--EASP--> [X agent]<--IMAP-->[fetchmail]

Now all you need to find is that X agent ;-)
