It Plays Nice on Corporate Networks with Microsoft Exchange Support

It Plays Nice on Corporate Networks with Microsoft Exchange Support

If you're a network administrator, you'll be happy with the addition of built-in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 support. You don't have to run Microsoft's Entourage programs. The Mac apps—Mail, iCal, and Address Book—can communicate directly with the network's Exchange server.

If the Auto Discovery feature is enabled on the Exchange server, setting up the Mac apps is a synch. Users just enter their login credentials and the server details are automatically configured.

Users can then access and manage their Exchange email right along with any personal accounts in the Mail application. They'll have the Exchange-powered features in iCal, such as the ability to view real-time availability of coworkers and conference rooms.

The Address Book also accesses the company's Global Address Lists. Users can work with and manage their local and Exchange-based contacts.
