Can view some Colleagues Calendars after invite to share their Calendar.
Other Colleagues after putting all the details in. Entourage gave a message "Entourage  could not find user' USER  ' mailbox.
Yet when selecting the details it supplied the e-mail address.
Unfortunately the Exchange server is on a remote site.

Make sure that you add the local IP address of the LDAP server in entourage. LDAP server is the (domain controler-global catalog) which is responsible of resolving the names to mailboxes. Sometimes, entourage acts weird, some clients will work without it, some will work by providing the name and others will never work unless you add the IP address of your LDAP server.

Thank you for your solution. This is a solution that only comes with hands on experience.
My Client, a Mac User, had to persuade their IT - diplomatically to carrying out the change.
They do not approve of Macs.
Hence the delay.

Thank you again for your solution.
