I have setup sbs and have several pc connected and working well with exchange and I have rpc working and owa, and push technology for treo 700 as well as active sync.

I have setup entourage to connect to exchange both in the office and out of the office.

The problems I am having are that I can not delegate another user for calander.  I get  Entourage connot connect to the exchange server  error 277, after I have found the user that I want and try to add.

also when I open entourage I get this error.

unable to establish a secure connection to the mail.omeletla.combecause the correct root certificate is not installed.

I did follow instructions for installing a root certificate, and if I click ok entourage connects to exchange.

the local domain name is exchange.omelet.local

the public domain name is mail.omeletla.com

what do I need to do to get this to work.

thanks

Jon

You have to manually install the certificate in the Mac's certificate store.

More info here:  http://sbsurl.com/mac and here:  http://simultaneouspancakes.com/Lessons/archives/2005/01/importing_security_certificate.shtml

I have copied the certificate over.  I had seen the second part before.

I'll try that.

Sorry, I did forget to focus on the issue of not being able to share the calendar from Entourage.  I am aware that this may be a problem although I don't have a current setup that I can test.  However, it would occur to me that the way to resolve this is to not do it from the Mac, but instead log in as that user on a PC workstation and open Outlook, which should automatically configure itself for that user upon opening.  Then, open the Calendar section and click on Share My Calendar... configure the appropriate options, users, security levels and then close out of Outlook and log off that workstation.

The calendar should now be shared accordingly and the users that will have permissions can add it to their Outlook view by clicking on the View Shared Calendar link.

that worked thanks.

i have managed to get the certificate installed on mac and I no longer get cert error on starting entourage.  but I still can not delegate users in calendar.  I'm wondering if it has to do with the way I have owa setup.  I have it setup so that I don't need certificate.  I can connect to exchange server from entourage without any certificate on mac.  maybe I should change setting in owa to require ssl.

thanks
