Hi,
Can someone guide me to the right direction on how to configure our Active Directory so that our MAC users will be able to see all the directory services?  Specifically when a MAC user has a email mailbox on our Exchange 2003 server, they need to see all the email groups and be able to book resources in Exchange 2003.  We have a Windows 2003 Domain (Active Directory); and Windows 2003 with Exchange 2003 Server.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Alex M.

Hi,

  The question appears to be in several parts.  
1)  how to authenticate apple clients against a Microsoft AD.
      Here are some  links to a describing how to use AD to authenticate Mac clients

2) Use the Apple Mail Client  or Entourage to view  AD (ldap) resources

  The old way to do it was to run outlook 2001 in classic environment.  Since that sucks, and classic has gone the way of the dinosaur with the new intel macs, most people run windows / parallels with the full blown windows outlook.  But if you want to run a native mac app your choices are apple mail or Entourage (outlook 2k4 for Mac).  Entourage will work but it has it's limitations.  If you want to use apple mail and your running version 2.1 (tiger osx 10.4.x) you can view public folders when you setup an IMAP or Exchange account.  I don't know of apple mail being able to view anything other then public exchange folders.

hope this helps
