Entourage 2008  Web Services Edition uses Exchange Web Services instead of WebDAV providing Mac users a better Exchange experience. Exchange Web Services is a modern protocol that enables client applications like Entourage 2008, Web Services Edition to communicate more quickly and reliably with the server running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SP1 with Update Rollup 4 or later.

This rebuilt version of Entourage 2008 not only offers performance and reliability improvements to e-mail and calendaring but new syncing of tasks, notes and categories, and Autodiscover.

Below are some highlights from the new and improved Entourage 2008, Web Services Edition:

  • Enhanced Autodiscover service to easily configure account and automatically keep settings up to date.
  • Synchronization between Exchange Server and Entourage 2008 Notes, Tasks, and Categories.
  • Addition of an Enable Logging (troubleshooting) preference, to log all events that can be used as diagnostic information.
  • Built-in logging with extensive reporting of diagnostic information.
  • Use of attachments in Entourage for Exchange calendar events.
  • Resolve names when composing mail and invites while outside of work without requiring VPN and LDAP.
