Exchange 2007 with Outlook 2011 for Mac RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have an Outlook 2011 for Mac client (part of Office for Mac 2011 Home & Business) and trying to connect it to Exchange 2007 (part of Small Business Server 2008)


    It appears to connect to the server okay and indicates that it is downloading mail, contacts, calendar etc. but none of these items actually show on the client


    I can use the client to send emails and it works fine, the email is received at the other end and if I log into Outlook web access, the email appears in the sent items (it does not show on the Mac client though)


    I can also add calendar entries using the mac client and they show up in web access, if i delete or change the same calendar entry in web access, those changes are NOT reflected on the mac client


    I have other Mac clients running Entourage 2008 connecting to the same server with no issues. I have also been able to successfully connect this Outlook 2011 client to an Exchange 2010 server with no issues


    Anybody have an idea of what to do here? It feels like a display setting has been changed, but that does not explain why it works on an Exchange 2010 server

  • I have been having the same issue.

    nathb1 mentioned that he is able to successfully connect this Outlook 2011 client to an Exchange 2010 server with no issues. I believe this is an Exchange 2007 issue, not an Outlook 2011 config issue. Any thoughts Fiona?

  • Did you ever find a fix? I've been searching for quite some time and have had no luck resolving this same issue.

  • I am having exactly the same thing too. It must be an exchange 2007 issue.

    Can anyone propose any solutions? Is an upgrade coming soon?
