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??

HEEEEEEELP :-)

You may need to configure the autodiscover service for the Outlook 2011 for the MAC to work properly.

This artilcle may help:

When you setup the Exchange Account for Outlook 2011,  in the server box, try typing something like this:
https://yourservername/EWS/Exchange.asmx

Note. MACs email client such as Entourage and Outlook 2010 requires the use of EWS

EWS stands for Exchange Web Services
see link:

the server name should be a URL to the EWS like the example from the prior reply.
