How do I set up my office exchange mail in Apple mail?  We have an exchange server at the office with mail and shared calendars.  I would like to use Apple Mail to access this email and the shared calendars.

    Provided that EWS is enabled on your Exchange sever, and is at least Exchange 2007 SP4 or newer:


    Simply go to System Preferences -> Mail, Contacts & Calendars -> click on Microsoft Exchange and follow the instructions.

    Sorry, I didn't pick up on your desire for public folder access.  This has been a limitation of Apples implementation of EWS since Snow Leopard. For access to that, you might have to use Outlook 2011.

    The changing settings could be caused by the "auto discover" service, which reconfigures Mail according to whatever the server specifies.  It is possible that it is getting confused when on your internal network and is reconfiguring the external server to be he same asa the internal server.


    Try looking at the settings when they work, and turn off the auto discover service.  Once set, they should stay the same.
