It depends if you MSX server is configured for pop-3 and/or imap or not.
The sysadmin for your Exchange server would have had to set it up to allow it.
Additionally, they would have also had to set it up to allow smtp for inbound
mail, AND they probably don't allow for relaying email without NTLP

Does your MSX server offer webmail access ?  If it does, you can use the 
davmail program.  It fetches/sends email via the webpage and it interfaces 
nicely with sylpheed.
