From my open question thread:
I use Entourage to connect to our 2003 Exchange server via the webserver. What do I need to do to get it to see Free/Busy?
For Exchange 2003 (as well as Exchange 2000), free/busy information is stored in the public folder server. Open up your Entourage account settings (go to the Entourage menu and select "account settings"), then go to the Advanced tab and enter your public folder server. Your Exchange admin should be able to tell you what to fill in here.
For additional information about this, there's some great resources:
- How Entourage 2008 works with free/busy data from the Office 2008 for Mac Administrator's Guide (which is a massively useful guide for those of you using Entourage in an Exchange environment)
- How does Entourage work, a blog post on Amir's Inside Entourage blog. Amir has moved along to another team (and we miss him 'cause he's awesome!), but the blog has lots of great information about using Entourage that's still timely and relevant.
- Managing Exchange 2003 free/busy folders from the Exchange 2003 Operations Guide has lots of information from the Exchange side of matters. Also check out the troubleshooting public folder free/busy information issues information.
