So I have a bit of a tricky one and excuse me for probably not using the correct technical termonlogy. My work has given me a dell laptop with office and outlook on it which I use at home and to do so I need to use a VPN to connect to works server or exchange won't connect. Work uses exchange 2003 which is painful in itself so I can't set up my work email to my mac mail at home even if I wanted to. My email works fine on my iPhone and iPad which from what I understand is because of ActiveSync.
My question is, is there a way to get mac mail to connect to my work email using ActiveSync or any other way or am I screwed and destined to use my windows door stop?
QUOTE Thanks

Someone else may have a better answer but as long as your work is using Exchange Server 2003, you won't be able to sync up even with Outlook 2011. If they upgrade the server to at least 2007 (2010 would be better) then you could use Outlook 2011.

Entourage 2008 will connect to Exchange 2003 but,...

Entourage 2008 uses WebDAV to connect and this is not enabled by default on the 2003 Exchange server and most admins won't do it, especially for one user.
No email client for the Mac including Outlook 2011 uses ActiveSync. Apple licensed the technology for iOS but I'm pretty sure Mac Mail (iCal and AddressBook) still use WebDAV.


Outlook Web Access might be your only option. Assuming 443 is open for ActiveSync.

Look at your mail server settings on your phone and then add https:// to the front and /exchange to the end.

ie: https://mail.company.com/exchange

This should not require a VPN to connect if 443 is open for iOS devices.
