1:31 /

New Exchange integration lets you get your Outlook mail in Apple's Mail app.

One big advantage to Mac OS X's Snow Leopard version over Leopard is its integrated Microsoft Exchange support. So if your company uses Microsoft Outlook and Exchange, you can now get your Exchange e-mail in the Apple Mail application. Here's how it works. Launch Mail. If you don't get the wizard, go to Mail, choose preferences, accounts, then press the plus symbol under the accounts pane. Put in your name, e-mail address, and email account password. Then press continue. Under account type, choose Exchange 2007. Your company must be running this version of Exchange. Not all companies do, so check with your friendly neighborhood SysAdmin. Give this account a name. Then put in your mail server, again provided by whomever runs your exchange server. Make sure your user name and password are entered correctly. You can also choose to integrate your calendar and contacts. Press Continue. Then choose SSL if your Exchange system supports it. One hopes it does, And press Continue again. Check Take Account online, review the summary to make sure it looks correct. Then Press Create. It may take awhile the first time, but eventually you should start to see your Exchange e-mail in the Mail app. Enjoy your new company Mac. I'm Tom Merritt, CNET.com.
