Today Microsoft released an updated version of Entourage--Entourage 2008 Web Services Edition--that does not work with Kerio.

It uses the new Exchange Web Services protocol (EWS), which is available in Exchange Server 2007 and above. Are there plans to support EWS in Kerio?

What concerns me is that, while the previous version of Entourage 2008 is still available and works with Kerio, I wouldn't be surprised if the next version only supports EWS.

Kerio is providing the best available support for Microsoft Entourage client on Mac (from 3rd party applications). We are going to continue in our effort to be the best groupware solution which supports all Mac clients. This includes also support for Entourage 2008 EWS. Currently, we can't promise any time frame.

Thank you so much for replying. I understand that you can't promise any time frame, but knowing it's on your radar makes one less IT problem that I have to worry about.

There is a good overview article about EWS, which covers possible Apple and Microsoft intentions (which we are seeing now), in a recent issue of MacTech:

You have to subscribe to read it, though. Sorry about that. I recommend the mag, especially if you are an admin.

I hope the Kerio support is forthcoming, but I certainly understand that switching a major protocol will no doubt be a big hassle. Hoever, full synchronization of all Entourage items (like notes, etc.) will be very helpful for our workgroup.

I 100% agree with previous post. As a new Kerio user, I hope this is a high priority on Kerios development schedule.

I agree... this is a priority for us too.
