Chapter 27. Working with Windows-Based Systems > Using Tiger with MS Exchange

Using Tiger with MS Exchange

Tiger offers rudimentary Exchange support in the form of Address Book synchronization and the capability to connect to an Exchange server via IMAP and Outlook Web Access. No, this does not mean that you'll be synchronizing calendars and scheduling with your Windows brethren. It does mean, however, that the Mail application can read email from an Exchange server, and Address Book can synchronize with your Exchange contacts.

Configuring Mail to Work with Exchange

To use Mail with Exchange, the Exchange server must be configured for IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) support. If the server also supports Outlook Web Access, the OWA server can be specified so that non-email–related information is filtered from the email. If OWA is not available, Mail still can access the account but might display extraneous information that, although useful in Outlook, has no purpose in Mac OS X. To add an Exchange IMAP account to Mail, follow the instructions in Chapter 3, “Using the Tiger Internet Application Suite,” but, when choosing an account type, pick Exchange, as shown in Figure 27.5.
