OK, got my new 11" MBA, Mail is all set up with my Exchange server details and messages are flowing in and out. Contacts are being saved, all good. Except that iCal refuses to play ball; I just get the account cant be refreshed. My mailbox is on Exchange 2003 - anybody got this working?

    iCal only works with Exchange 2007 or later.  Microsoft uses a different connection protocol in Exchange 2003.


    You can try Davmail.  I do not use it and I am not promoting it so no guarantees.  The posts I'm reading seem to indicated it's a bit buggy, but maybe it's sufficient for you.


    Ralistically, your company should be seriously considering upgrading since Exchange 2003 is already past normal support and will go end of life in a couple of years.  Additionally, Exchange 2010 now supports Safari for Mac when connecting to Outlook Web Access, so basically, Microsoft really started showing support for Mac in Exchange 2010 (and not just giving Mac lip service.)

    DavMail can be buggy, and the calendar is the most 'buggy' bit.


    Frankly I am surprised the OP is getting mail (unless he's using iMap) OSX does not support E2003.
