1) It's better to use IMAP - Exchange supports this, and fetchmail works
   better with it.

2) Here's the fetchmail config I use for reference.

# @(#) $Id: fetchmail.rc,v 1.3 1999/07/26 07:13:09 dom Exp $

# Global options.
set postmaster "dom"
set daemon 300
set syslog

# Work mail server.
poll ho-nt-01 with proto IMAP
       user "PHM_HO/Dom/D.Mitchell" there with password "XXX" is dom here

Note the 3 part login, as mentioned above...  I only managed to find
mine by accident!
