Outlook 2016 and CommuniGate Pro Server

I just had to install Outlook 2016 (ver MSO 16.0.7927.1020 32 bit) and in creating a mailbox was not offered the "Choose server type from the ones shown below) which would have been CommuniGate Pro Server.

Has Microsoft eliminated the choice of server type?  Active Sync seems to be the only choice now.  (Well, if it's just one, it's not really a choice, right?)  It sort of works, but not completely.  Any suggestions?

Am not remotely familiar with CommuniGate Pro server but the first question is - did you install the "Mapi Connector" as described in



I did!   (Good question, though!)
