I have checked Exchange Server 2007 versions and roll ups and am led to believe by my IT department that everything is correct for operation with MAC OSX 10.6.8 Mac Mail V4.5 but I still cannot get it to work.


The Exchange Server is set up so that I access email when connected to our VPN. I can succesfully ping our mail server address using Terminal.


(All company and name details have been hidden with *** for security reasons)


This is the error that I receive:


The server returned the error: The server “EXCHANGESERVER.***.local” cannot be contacted on port 80.


(The SSL ports are open on both Port 80 and 443 on the server)



Exchange Server details are as follows:

    Hi, Not being an Exchange expert, one can read that there are more than 26 pages of debate with OSX users having issues with the Exchange servers in different versions I guess.


    I have experienced lots of issues with the Exchange servers, but strangely enough have been told, that there are also many happy Mac users on the university at the same time. All using OSX and Mail.


    That's strange, so I thinking about the suggestion from some users, that stuck e-mails on the Exchange servers can cause troubles? Just an idea.
