Problems connecting Outlook 2011 MAC to Exchange Server
Posted on 2011-03-23
I have a Microsoft Small Business Server 2008.
I have about 15 users with PC's with XP Pro plus two MacBooks running OSX 10.6.6.
(I don't know ANYTHING about Macs!)
I have just installed Office 2011 on the MacBook's and is now trying to setup Outlook for the Exchange part of SBS but is failing!!
My problem is that this D... :-) Mac Outlook is not asking for the same information I'm used to enter from PC's.
This is what I do:
I go into ACCOUNTS and press the "+" to add an Exchange account.
I enter the Email address.
I enter the validation method "USERNAME and PASSWORD"
I enter domainname\username
I check the CONFIGURE AUTOMATICALLY
I press ADD ACCOUNT
I now says "Searching for Exchange Server"
After approx. 30 secs. it tells me that it is now redirected to some AUTODISCOVER.EXCHANGESERVER.DK.
I press ACCEPT
After approx. 2 minutes of searching it says that it can not proceed automaticly and need the name of the server.
I tried to enter local servername SBSSERV as well as local ip and official servername MAIL.domainname.DK
From here nothing happens??
Im not recieving anything??
