mac w/exchange....i'm tearing my hair out
Posted on 2004-11-18
This is my situation.
I've got SBS 2003 w/Exchange 2003SP1. We have been running it for a few months with all PC users w/outlook 2003 and that has been working very well. We now have a mac in the family (powerbook g4 w/OS X). I've never even touched a mac before so I'm learning as I go here.
My problem is the user is having problem with the email. I got it running with the supplied Mail program and that seemed to be running ok. The problem started when I copied all his old messages into the account. It now runs really REALLY slow, also sometimes when he gets an email the headers are their but no body. So I decided to get something else running. I tried Entourage but in that process I read all the posts on here and it didn't seem too positive. So I downloaded Mac Outlook 2001 but it can't connect to the exchange server so I'm wondering where I should go next. Is the supplied Mail problem the best option? I do have the virtual pc that would let him run normail outlook but he doesn't want to have to go through that if he doesn't have to. Or what could be wrong with mac outlook 2001.
Any help somebody could throw my way would be great.
