How do I show Exchange folders on Entourage 2008?

Hello, we setup Entourage 2008 on our Macintosh computers for one of our departments. 2 of the 3 macs are able to communicate with Exchange 2007 without any problems.

However, the last mac, even though the setup is identical, will not download exchange folders for the user.  When we expand the Exchange folder on their Entourage, it only shows Public folders.  Their inbox, contacts, etc. are no where to be found.

I confirmed that the setup was the same as the other two macs.  I have tried deleting the account from the mac and re-adding it.  Also, tried uninstalling Office 2008 and reinstalling.  Office is at the latest patch (12.1.9).

What could be blocking the exchange folders from downloading to the last mac?

Hi Subsun,

Yes, the user can access their mail from OWA, that is what they have been using in place of Entourage.  Account settings have been verified.  The configuration is identical to the other Entourage clients and they work fine.  It is only this one Entourage client.

The other EE article indicates that the issue was using /exchange/usermailaddress@abc.com.  I tried that as well but to no avail.  One of the articles shows enabling WebDAV on IIS.  Current it is not installed on our setup, but I didn't think it was necessary since the other clients were working fine.

The other clients access Exchange with the settings of their Account ID, domain, password, and the Exchange server entered is owa.domain.com.  Everything else is at the defaults.  I also tried entering just the NetBIOS name of the server but it had no effect.
