OWA / Exchange on MAC

One of my clients got a MacBook Pro as their home / travel computer

We run Hosted Exchange for them and it works great on all Windows machines

The problem with the MAC we are having is that we can't see all folders on the mail software, neither on the webmail as it requires Microsoft Explorer to display (these are the shared folders and folder structures etc )

Does anyone have a solution to this, what software is intended and suggested to use for Exchange when on a MAC, and if there is no software, can it be accessed through the webmail and all folders be displayed ?

Would Outlook for Mac from "Mac Office 2011" solve your problem?

Will check with the client but there was some issue with that and Hosted Exchange from memory, got my notes in the office

Any ideas re the OWA to display all folders and work correctly on a MAC? On Windows you have to use Explorer otherwise you get the same issues as on MAC
One way could be to use a Mozilla Firefox browser on your MAC. That will enchance your visual experience on the MAC

Maybe I've been missing something here but our experience from supporting several hundred Microsoft users is that OWA only functions properly in Explorer, and Explorer only?

How do you get the Public Folders etc listed in Mozilla Firefox ?
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Depends on the version of Exchange that you have as to the compatibility.

If you have Microsoft Exchange 2007 SP1 RU4 or later then it should be fine to use Outlook 2011 for Mac.

Shared Folders can be added via Tools> Accounts> Advanced> Delegates> People I am a delegate for> Add the delegate whose folders you have access to.
