I'm having problems using JavaMail with the Microsoft Exchange Server. What do I have to do to fix this?

According to the Notes.txt file that comes with JavaMail:

4. We've received reports of IMAP authentication failures on the Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5, enterprise edition. This is due to a bug in the Microsoft server and the "Service Pack 1 for Exchange Server 5.5" apparently fixes this server bug. The service pack can be downloaded from the Microsoft website.
