    Exchange Compatible E-mail Client For Mac

    Hi

    What software e-mail client can I use for exchange on a Mac? Can Microsoft Office 2004 or 2008 do this or is there some kind of 3rd party application to achieve this?

    Thank you

    Hi,

    Entourage will indeed do this- and there is a great site here that helps with the whole thing:

    Exchange Support

    The Entourage 2008 blog is very good for information too:

    The Entourage Help Blog

    HTH

    Erm...

    I believe folders are one of the problems with Entourage right now, but that may have been fixed in one of the updates. Unless they are publically accessible folders that is

    Then there are tasks, notes, receipt features for emails, tasks, proper support for calendars. None of those I am afraid are anything like the experience you would get with Outlook or OWA.

    Of course I may have got some of those wrong, but the general thing is that Entourage still isn't quite "there" yet with equivalent support to Outlook itself for Exchange integration.

    Hope that helps!

    Paul

    I found evolution for osx, which does exchange calenders.

    Novell Documentation
    If you want a cross platform collaboration server then exchange isn't your best choice. MS and integration don't go hand in hand.

    The built in Mail app will work okay with exchange on 10.5 over imap (it has an exchange option so the special folders are using the correct names). That's only going to get you access to your mail though.

    I use entourage 2008 with a secure OWA site and it works fine.

    You have access to all the usual features of OWA + shared calendars etc...

    The main downfall of it is that it doesn't support archiving like Outlook does.

    on 10.5? a fresh install of 10.5? There are a number of keychain issues with even 2008 atm. I can't use it due to the client cert though :/

    entourage 2004

    Don't you get Entourage on a disk with Exchange License Cds?

    I remember seeing it at my last place when we purchased Exchange. I don't think we would of purchased it as we had no macs there.
