Office 2011 for Mac Outlook Support

Postby iway » Thu Aug 05, 2010 5:17 am

Hello!

How and when can Outlook for Mac (Office 2011) be used with Zimbra? This is really important since most business users with Macs will use Outlook...
Thanks
C.

Well, sort of. How can Office Outlook for Mac sync with Zimbra for Mail (IMAP), Calendars and Contacts?

Easy question, actually...

Easy question, actually...[/QUOTE]Well, the easy answer is in several parts: a) I've no idea as I don't use the MAC; b) I believe that Outlook 2011 is still in beta and details will be announced when it's released and if it's supported; c) I assume that iSync/CalDAV (and IMAP) would be the same as current versions of Outlook (unless you have any information that it's changed?).

Office 2011 for Mac Outlook Support

Phoenix, there's no current version of Outlook for Mac. There was such a thing a long time ago, but it was replaced by Entourage. The new Outlook for Mac will replace Entourage in turn.
As I understand it, however, Outlook for Mac will not support CalDAV. I would expect it to support IMAP, just as Outlook for Windows does, but for other server interactions, all I've heard about is Microsoft's proprietary Exchange Web Services. This is the same interface used by Entourage 2008 Web Services Edition and by Apple Mail.app when connecting to an Exchange server.
The issue of EWS support is tracked under Bug 38631 - Enable snow leopard messaging features, Outlook for Mac 2010
As far as iSync support, I couldn't say. However if you look at what happened to Zimbra iSync with Entourage and Mac OS, I wouldn't keep my fingers crossed.
I would dispute the premise of the initial question, though. We don't know what most business users with Macs will use for email once Office 2011 is released. Right now at my company, they use Mail.app to talk to Zimbra, and they'll happily continue to do so. I imagine if a business has an Exchange server, or possibly (eventually) Kerio, they'll have a choice of Mail.app or Outlook 2011.

I just tested with beta 6, and apparently it does not synchronize at all.

I bought Office 2011 for Mac and then realized it is not compatible with Zimbra. It is syncing my address book, but no emails/calendars are syncing.
Any update on a connector for Office 2k11 for Mac (Snow leopard).
Thanks

I'm really interested in Zimbra Collaboration supporting Outlook on a Mac, do we have an update on when this might be anticipated?
