I am using Entourage on the Mac for my clients and I was looking for some advice on the benefits/drawbacks of using either IMAP accounts for my clients, or using Exchange accounts. We don't use the group collaboration of exchange, so the shared calendar feature is unused. I am looking mainly for comments on the reilability of either protocol, and how fast updates sync to the server, and how well Entourage works with either protocol. Any comments are appreciated!

We use both IMAP and "Exchange style" accounts in house on Entourage 2004. Personally, I would recommend WebDAV (Exchange) over IMAP.There is a slight delay in updating the inbox with WebDAV, but it's not too bad. Even though you're not using shared calendars, it doesn't stink having contacts and personal calendars stored on the server. I've found that I have to refresh my local cache far less often with the "Exchange" setup.

Frankly, I think you'll gain much more than you'll lose - and I really don't even know what is lost!

Good luck,
