Were currently in the process of having an Exchange 2007 implemented for us by our parent company and merging our AD with theirs and I was wondering whether our Apple Mac users require there machines to be binded to our AD to be able to use Exchange. Or can they just use IP and that will suffice?
Currently their not but use our AD to authenticate when logging onto our file servers.

There are about 40 macs so I don't want to have to visit each machine but may have to :(

Thanks in advance.

Thanks jjdurrant,

It say's nothing about having to bind the Macs to AD so I presume it's not a requirement? As long as you can point to the Exchange server via IP or DNS name it should be ok.

nope, not required. All you need is the IP and a valid account.
