Connecting Exchange 2007 and Entourage 2008

Well I have sat for hours trying to get my Entourage  2008 to talk to my new Exchange 2007 server.

Before I used to connect via HTTPS using
https://old.network/exhchange

This worked, however was an older 2003 server.

Exchange 2007, however doesn’t use the /exchange folder. Hmm.

You can however install this by using a command on the Exchange Command Shell
New-OWAVirtualDirectory -OwaVersion:Exchange2003or2000 -VirtualDirectoryType Mailboxes -Name “exchange”

This gives you the exchange folder back, which then got my Outlook 2003 playing nicely.

Back to the mac, it still wasn’t playing right, after trying loads of different url’s, and numerous google leads, I worked out I had  been going about it all wrong.

To get it to work you need to point Entourage at you CAS server, using  the following type address:
https://new.network/exchange/myusername@mydomain.com

And there you go, all worked for me 🙂 even playing nicely with my two windows phones… Sweet.
