Let's see what we can discern here.
Open Mail, Contacts and Calendars (located at System>Preferences>Mail Contacts and Calendars)
Select a new Exchange Account:
You will get this dialog box:
Fill in your name, email address and your password.
If your company's Exchange Server is correctly configured you should be then connected, then it will ask if you want to setup Contacts Calendars and Tasks, if you do then say yes.
If instead you get asked for server addresses and so on you will need your IT Dept's help.
Thanks for your help. I didn't realize that there was a big difference in the activesync and such. I would be much easier if they both used the same. I just wanted to be able to get my e-mail on my mac in real time and not have to log into a separate website.
O well I guess I will keep my pc running at work and my ipad at home to get my e-mail.
Thanks for all your help.
