Unfortunately the response I see doing a telnet to the Exchange servers on port 25 is either:

"220 ****************************************************************************


"220 xxxxxxxx.yyyyy.local Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version: 6.0.3790.39
59 ready at  Wed, 25 Jun 2008 15:50:17 +0100"

- both of which start with "220"

I believe the 220 has to be in the beginning like the rest of the MTAs in the world.  Try putting...

  expect "Exchange 220"
  options banner
  port 25
