Mac users who want an Exchange-compatible email client from Microsoft have historically relied on Entourage or Microsoft Web Access. With the release of Office for Mac 2011, Microsoft has replaced the Entourage client with Outlook for Mac 2011. Progent's macOS and Mac OS X technology experts and Microsoft-certified Exchange consultants can help you maintain your legacy email environment, plan and carry out a smooth migration to Microsoft's latest technology, and enhance your Exchange infrastructure to optimize the performance, availability, security, productivity, collaborative capability, and overall business value of your company-wide email, messaging, and conferencing solution.
