Note Support for Microsoft Entourage 2004 for Mac ended on January 10, 2012 and support for Microsoft Entourage 2008 for Mac ended on April 9, 2013. For more information about Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac and Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac, see the Microsoft Support Lifecycle policy.
In earlier versions of Outlook, such as Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2002, the manager and the delegates can use different versions of Outlook. For example, the delegates can use Outlook 2002, and the manager can use Outlook 2003. However, we do not recommend this configuration.
Mac email client requirements based on Exchange Server versionsIf the manager or the delegate is using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, then Entourage 2008 is required. If both the manager and delegates have mailboxes on Exchange Server 2007 or later versions, then Outlook for Mac 2011 is supported.
Important Entourage clients cannot connect with a mailbox on Exchange Server 2007 or Exchange Server 2010 for delegate rights assignment unless public folders exist in the Exchange organization. If public folders do not exist in the Exchange 2007 organization, use one of the following workarounds:
- Add a public folder store to Exchange Server. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:924625 When you use Outlook with an Exchange 2007 mailbox, you cannot connect to Exchange 2007, and you receive an error message
- Move both the delegate and the manager to Outlook 2016, Outlook 2013, Outlook 2010 or Outlook 2007 SP2 (or later versions). Outlook 2013, Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2007 do not require public folders in order to access a mailbox on Exchange Server 2007 (or a later version).
