Entourage & Exchange 2010

If you do have Entourage users on your messaging environment and you wish to move into Exchange 2010 , couple things you need to be aware of….. below info is taken from Henrik Walter article at TechNet Magazine, check it out….


  • We've heard that Microsoft is discontinuing WebDAV as of Exchange 2010 and wonder
  • if that will leave Entourage clients forced to connect to Exchange 2010 using legacy protocols such as POP or IMAP?
  • Yes, you're right, with Exchange 2010 Microsoft discontinues WebDAV. And, yes, this means that users of Entourage 2008 and older versions will only be able to connect to Exchange 2010 via POP or IMAP.
  • But the Exchange team can't just ignore this mail client protocol because another Microsoft product group uses it. So, Microsoft is taking care of this problem with the new Entourage client (which, as of this writing, is in beta).
  • The upcoming Entourage client will use Exchange Web Services (EWS) for connecting to Exchange. As a result, this version also will support many more features than did the previous, WebDAV-based versions.
  • Now tasks, notes and categories can sync withExchange, and the new Entourage version will have full support for AutoDiscover (Entourage 2008 SP1 had only limited support for AutoDiscover

This information is horribly out of date. Entourage 13 (Web Services Edition) has been available since before Exchange 2010 shipped.


Outlook 2011 for Mac is also nearing completion and will be replacing Entourage in the upcoming Mac Office release.
