    Office 2011 for Mac? Anyone using it?
    is anyone using the Office 2011 for Mac? if so, how do you like it? is the email "push" better than the previous Entourage? Looking to get away from having Parallels installed for using Outlook! Thanks!

    The Home and Business version of Office 2011 has Outlook included. The Home and Student version does not. Just thought I'd mention that fact since the Home and Business version is more expensive.

    The academic version has Outlook as well if you qualify.

    I would comment on Outlook but I use Mail and honestly, Mail works so there is little reason to move over to Outlook.

    Specs:
    iMac i5 2.7GHz, 16GB memory, OS 10.10.5
    And I won't look at Office 2011 until an uninstaller is included in the package!

    Yes i'm using it on my MacBook. Have 3 accounts setup - hosted exchange; gmail and hotmail. Seems seamless in setup and smooth in operation.

    Just posted of the MS tech forums a query I have in that I cannot find 'mail box cleanup' similar to the PC version and Auto Archive. Appart from that - very superion to Entourage and better then Mac Mail (for business uses - personal use mac mail is sufficient)

    Hope that helps

    I'm using Office 2011 and I love it. Much better than 2008 and much more flexible and powerful than iWorks (outside of maybe Keynote).

    It's awful....
    Outlook is anyway, it's a major step back from Entourage and uglier as well. Lot's missing and the HTML email signature issue still hasn't been resolved.

    Where's Resend?
    Why can't I put an Inbox button on the toolbar???
    Why can't I browse folders to move an email??
    Why can't I archive off specific emails/folders??
    Why does search not look in the body of the email as well?

    Needs a lot of work... very, very disappointed.

    Word, Exel, PowerPoint etc are all fine but Outlook is sh1te.

    I am extremely disappointed that Outlook 2011 does not provide an option to sync with iCal, and by extension, an iPhone. Entourage 2008 did. So I'm stuck with Office 2011 on my MBP and still using Entourage 2008 until MS gets their act together. How they could release a version of Office for Mac that won't fully sync with the typical users iPhone is beyond me.

    But there is! Simply purchase a Dell PowerEdge™ with Microsoft Windows Server 2008, and then install Microsoft Exchange™ 2010 on it. Then you'll be able to sync everything just fine!

    Thank you everyone for your insight! I ended up purchasing Office 2011:Mac, installed it and found out that it is not compatible with Exchange 2003. Time to upgrade that too...in due time. i just removed the Office 2011 from the machine and am still using Parallels to have Outlook installed (tried Entourage and didn't care for it).
