I have been asked the following today.
Unity 7.0 is currently being configured and will be finished in the next couple of days. Also, another configuration of Exchange 2007 is being done and will be finished next week. I have been asked to do the integration between the two of them when they are done!
I was shocked because from what I know in my training and already implemented (on Unity 5.0, Exchange 2003), to do such integration, Exchange should be installed before Unity and the mailbox (Exchange) is chosen during the installation of Unity.
Is it possible to do such an integration AFTER both Unity and Exchange have been setup completely?
If this is a fresh installation, you cannot complete the Unity setup without integrating with an existing Exchange environment.

You cannot finish a Unity install without running the MSCW and binding it to the partner server.
Even if you look at the install guides
Installing and Configuring Cisco Unity Software
To install and configure Cisco Unity software, you use the Cisco Unity Installation and Configuration Assistant to run seven programs in a specific order. The programs:
•Check the system and install the Cisco Unity software.
•Install the Cisco Unity licenses.
•Configure the Cisco Unity services.
•Configure Cisco Unity for the message store.
Step 1 On the Configure the Cisco Unity Message Store page, click Run the Cisco Unity Message Store Configuration Wizard. (Note that you should be logged on to Windows with the Cisco Unity installation account.)
Step 2 Confirm that Exchange is running on the partner server that you chose in the "Determining the Partner Exchange Server" section on page 6-2. If Exchange is not running, configuring the message store on the Cisco Unity server will fail.
