For those running Macs in corporate environments who dictate the use of MS Exchange server for their email requirements (The World's Best Virus Distribution System™), the MacBU has released the Office 10.1.4 update which allows Entourage to talk to these servers directly.

That means you can finally ditch Outlook 2001 is Classic.

Make sure you have applied all the updates prior however and you're all set. We'll be testing this release to make sure its everything they claim.

For many, this is the last OS 9 app they had to get rid of now that Quark has gotten off their sorry behinds. Hmm, lets see now, what else is there left to ditch...?

I don't use MS Exchange Server, but I'd like to know what improvements they've made to Word, Excel and PowerPoint in this latest update.

Agreed, Exchange is a royal pain the butt. I'd love to see an open-source groupware system that uses industry standard protocols and is not OS-dependant or client-specific.

If Apple could bring something together that uses IMAP, SMTP, ICAL, LDAP etc.. and runs on OS X, Linux and even Windows we'd have something really nice.

I LOVE Communigate Pro, its the best email server I've ever come across. Sendmail is positively archaic compared to that. I tried the MAPI plug-in but couldn't get it going... I'd like to tray that out...
