Does anyone know how to get client access to a Microsoft Exchange Server group calendar (and other Exchange Server features, like group email, address books, file sharing, etc.) on a Mac? We're running OS8.6 and OS9 on about 15 Macs spread out over offices in 3 cities.

You would use Microsoft Outlook (Not Outlook Express) (For Mac). Filesharing would be done by by using your companys 'public folders' to share out files. Other than that its pretty straight forward. I never recommend using microsoft products but using microsoft products to connect to a microsoft server is generally the only way to do it..heh

Weed -- forgive my ignorance, but I've searched Microsoft's website very thoroughly and can't find info on a Mac version of Outlook. Outlook 98 and 2000 are shown as Windows-only programs, and the only version of Outlook shown for Mac is Outlook Express 5.0.

I -have- seen -references- to a browser-based Exchange client, but haven't been able to find actual product information about it anywhere.

Until I get specifics (e.g., a URL at Microsoft's site where I can get hard info and downloadables for a Mac client for Exchange Server), I'm afraid I can't award anyone the points.

Weed -- thanks for the link. I downloaded this installer over the weekend. However, I found to my chagrin that Mac Outlook 8.2.1, while indeed a real Exchange Server client for the Mac, is in fact a direct port of the old Exchange Client software from the early '90s, complete with that Win3.x/early Win95 interface and dog-slow performance. Worse, the UI is terrible, and doesn't even offer many of the nice functionality of the current Outlook for Windows.

However, none of this is Weed's fault, and the VersionTracker link has proved useful to me for other things already -- so the 200 points are his.
