  • Hiya,

    Just a little more information to add.

    Firstly, if you are running on OS X Snow Leopard, you have a few options. Outlook 2011, Entourage 2008 EWS Edition or Mac Mail using EWS (ie. the Exchange 2007 option). All those options require EWS on the server.

    If you're running OS X Leopard, then it's Office 2011/Entourage 2008 EWS or Mac Mail using IMAP/SMTP.

    EWS should be setup when you install Exchange and runs as a web service on your Client Access servers. Get Autodiscover working correctly, and test using this .

    If you want to enable IMAP, then you need to enable startup to automatic, start and assign an appropriate certificate to the IMAP service on the Client Access servers, and of course ensure it's open on any firewall in between. SMTP uses your Hub Transport servers and by default will allow TLS on port 587.

    Assuming EWS and autodiscover works correctly, setup on the Mac on Snow Leopard, or with Outlook/Entourage 2008 EWS edition should be as simple as putting in the email address/password and letting discovery take place.
