Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Unfortunately, there is no browser that will give you full access OWA 2003′s feature set. Microsoft incorporated a lot of browser calls that only work in IE6 or above. No browser on the Mac can support these calls. If you HAD to pick a browser to do it on, Safari would probably be the best but not much better than Firefox. And, as sad as it is to say, IE is probably the worst since it’s been abandoned.

The Entourage answer will work to a degree and will give you access to the folders, although I’m still not sure it will give you everything you are looking for.

Your easiest solution is to use Entourage 2004 to connect over http:// to the exchange server. By entering your Outlook Web Access URL into Entourage’s account information field, you can use Entourage wherever you can go on the internet. Even SSL will work.

You can also install iSync and synchronize Apple Mail with the Exchange Server.

    Does OWA work successfully for you in IE on another computer? Also what version of Exchange?

    Works fine for me using Microsoft Exchange 2003 in: > Windows XP w/ Internet Explorer 6 + 7 > Windows XP w/ Firefox 3* > openSUSE 11.0 w/ Firefox 3* (* in Firefox it does not look quite identical to IE, primarily in that the folder list is gone entirely--clicking the 'Folders' button displays a list of folders in place of your message area--but OWA still functions nonetheless!) Using all of those variations I have never seen the message you quoted. Like Technochic asked, I would definitely start trying other machines to see how they respond.
