OWA in Premium Mode relies on client-side scripting technology, notably VBScript. This support is only available in Internet Explorer.

Non-IE browsers are restricted to Basic Mode because that is the only version which does not require such advanced levels of client-side scripting.

In short: No, Safari cannot run Premium OWA.

Yes I figured that, I was just hoping there's some other way of going around it without having to install some other application such as Wine.  I thought there might be a way to get agent switcher to emulate IE with some kinda of hack.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

You can still use the Basic edition of OWA which has Basic functionality. There is no way of 'working around' the browser limitation; VBScript technology is ONLY available in Internet Explorer.
Any attempt to hack OWA Premium to work with a non-IE browser will render that form of OWA in that browser useless.

I'm well aware that OWA premium is not supported on the mac.  I searched for quite some time but found no solution.  I was simply hoping someone may have figured out a way by now to tweak or hack either Safari or F-Fox.  I wish I had paid more attention in my programming class :).

Not Safari/FF. They do not, and will not, support VBScript. It is a Microsoft technology and is available only in Internet Explorer.

You will need to use Basic Edition of OWA. Discussing hacks for browsers is beyond the scope of EE and is not permitted on this site.
