Configure Entourage 2008 for Exchange

Note: The "Setup Assistant Wizard," which is the default for initial Entourage 2008 configurations, will not work for the SCS Exchange environment. You must use the manual version of the tool. Thus, if you are configuring Entourage 2008 for the first time, close the "Setup Assistant" window and follow the directions below.

To configure Entourage 2008 for use within the SCS Exchange environment:

  1. Open Entourage and, on the menu bar at screen top, click "Entourage" then "Account Settings"
  2. Click "New"
  3. Enter your email address
  4. Check the box next to "My account is on an Exchange server"
  5. Click "Configure Account Manually"
    Entourage menu Account Setup Assistant

  6. Edit Account - Settings In the "Edit Account" dialog box under the "Account Settings" tab, enter the following:
    • Account name: "SCS Exchange"
    • Name: <Your full name>
    • E-mail address:
      <Your SCS email address>
    • Authentication: Select "Use my account information"
    • Account ID: <Your SCS user ID>
    • Domain: "SCS"
    • Password:
      <Your SCS Windows domain password>
    • Exchange Server: ""
    • Check the box next to: "This DAV service requires ..."
    You may save your Windows password in the Mac OS Keychain, if you choose.

  7. Edit Account - Advanced Under the "Advanced" tab, enter the following under "Directory Settings":
    • LDAP Server: ""
    • Uncheck "This server requires me to log on"
    • Uncheck " This LDAP server requires a secure connection"
    • Search base: "dc=cs,dc=cmu,dc=edu"
  8. Click "OK"
Configuration should now be complete. Doubleclick on the SCS Exchange account in the folder panel to connect to the server.

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