fetchmail and Exchange 2007

Lund University upgraded their email server to Exchange 2007 which suddenly made it impossible to fetch my email over IMAP via fetchmail using my old settings. It turns out I have to specify the autorization method, which is not 'password' by default as it says in the man page for fetchmail (the default is 'defualt' though I'm not sure what that means), and set it to 'password':

poll imap.lu.se proto imap
auth password
user [remote-user], with password [password], is [local-user] here ssl;

Now it works!
