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

This worked, however was an older 2003 server.

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

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.
