Hey there, I currently have a client with a SBS2003 using exchange.

i have set up HTTPS/RPC (with public SSL cert) and this function works fine using an outlook client from outside the LAN.

The owner is stuck on his MACBOOK and AIR,  what can I do to get those 2 systems to work with the Exchange server so he has access to alendar, contacts and e-mail.

I would like to do this without having him purchanse another piece of software if possible, but tell me what needs to be done.

Thank you

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As far as I am aware Mac OS X Snow Leopard and above will not connect to exchange unless its version 2007 or above.

Is OWA not a viable option?
I think you're going to have to use IMAP with MAC Mail.
OWA on a MAC with Exchange 2003 will run the light client and he won't have the nice interface you get with 2010...

Exchange 2003 is the server.  since there does not seem to be a way to exchange with MAC mail, is there a 3rd party software that will work with outlook mail as well as  calendar and clients on a MAC?
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Office for Mac will do it. Entourage / Outlook should allow you to access them.

OK Toby, Can I set up entourage for use outside of the LAN (from the internet like RPC/HTTPS)?  Are there any special ports needing to be passed?
If you are using Entourage then you will need to use WebDav to set it.

I think Outlook for Mac is a bit easier to set up.
