    Default connector for entourage

    Is there any plans at this point in time for Microsoft Entourage on Mac? Entourage supports MS Exchange synchronisation the same as Microsoft Outlook for PC.

    We have a number of our clients looking for Entourage support.

    I am curious to know if anyone has tested this out with a diverse population of Mac users, both tech-savvy and non-savvy. Was the performance rock solid? And isn't this connector still in beta?

    I am a little confused by this guide (bolding is my own):
    Quote Originally Posted by ZCS Apple iSync Beta overview
    Synchronizing with Microsoft Entourage®

    With the newest update to Microsoft® Office 2004 for Mac (version 11.2.3), the ZCS Connector for Apple iSync now enables synchronization of contacts and calendar data between Entourage and the ZCS server. To enable this feature, users of Entourage 11.2.3 select Preference>General Preferences>Sync Services to synchronize Entourage contacts and calendar items (events) with Address Book and iCal. ZCS mail can be synced with Entourage using IMAP. Currently, Entourage allows only one calendar per user account, and this calendar by default is called “Entourage.” This contrasts with the default ZCS calendar, which is called “Calendar.” Entourage calendar and ZCS calendar do not sync. The Entourage calendar is created on the ZCS server. Users who want to sync their calendar between Entourage and the ZCS server should use the Entourage calendar exclusively.

    Note: Appointments in the ZCS Calendar will not be visible from Entourage. Since meeting invitations sent to ZCS users will create appointments in the ZCS Calendar, Zimbra recommends using Entourage calendar only for personal calendaring at this time (i.e. creating personal appointment without inviting others.) Zimbra is working on solutions to resolve this in the future.
    I may be a little dense, but is this saying that Entourage users who wish to use their Zimbra calendar exclusively must rename their calendars on the local machine to be called "Zimbra"? Would someone mind listing the steps out one by one?

    We are a small startup and about 90% of our users are on Macs and are NOT very technical, while I'm pretty technical but not Mac savvy. So I'm a little hesitant here.

    You need to create a new calendar in Zimbra called 'Entourage' and use that as your primary calendar

    Gah, of course. Thank you. I'm sure one day I'll finally identify the evolutionary advantage for my Dyslexia.

    Back on topic, so how would this work if there were multiple calendars on the backend? Seems Entourage users would be limited to seeing just one of them unless they also use the web frontend. What about iCal?
