Configuring Entourage for Exchange Mail Logo

To configure Microsoft Entourage for Mac to use the SCS Exchange server, follow these steps:
  • Open Entourage, then on the menu bar at the top of the screen click "Entourage" then "Account Settings"

  • Click "New"
  • Enter your email address, check the box next to "My account is on an Exchange server"

  • Enter your SCS Windows user ID as simply "[username]" (not scs\[username]), enter "scs" for the Domain, and enter your SCS Windows Domain password
  • Click the right facing arrow to continue. The setup will attempt to automatically detect the configuration - this process typically fails. Click the right facing arrow again to move on to step 4
  • Enter the Exchange server as "", enter the LDAP server as "", and check the box next to "Use SSL for these servers"

  • If prompted to verify settings, click "Skip" each time (it may display that the connection cannot be established - just click "Skip" again)
  • Name the account, then click "Finish"

The account will then synchronize for the first time - if this is an existing Exchange account this process may take several minutes. Once the synchronization is complete, the account is successfully configured.
