I have no experience with this, but Exim (for example - I have no idea
about other MTAs) can apparently handle NTLM authentication on both the
client and server sides, so all you'd have to do is run an Exim
instance, configure it to do NTLM with the Exchange server, and then
point your Sylph(s) at the Exim instance.
