Entorage 2008 with Exchange 2007 connection issues
Posted on 2009-05-08
We have fairly simple structure consisting of a Windows 2008 domain running Exchange 2007.
Iansvr01 - windows 2008 X64 Fileserver, DNS and DHCP
Ianexch01 - windows 2008 running exchange 2007
Network is pretty simple with only 8 users. However one user (MD and owner of company) is looking to connect a NEW Macbook running Mac OS X 10.5.6 to the domain as their primary machine.
I have been trying unseccessfully to set up Entourage 2008 version 12.1.7
I have read many posts on various web sites but nothing seems to make this work.
Here is a synopsys of the set up.
On Account setup wizard I start up a new account
click account is on exchange server.
Then Configure manually
Entering name and email address, then the authentification details
Account ID: md_company.com
domain : domain.com
Password : pwd of domain
Exchange server details are entered
Finally entering the LDAP server (Iansvr01 as above) under the Advanced tab
When I complete this the mail account is listed in entourage but says NOT CONNECTED
restarting entourage does not change this status.
Can anyone help please, the MD is getting a little frustrated and thinks this should be a pretty simple task.
