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.

Outlook for Mac ConsultingMicrosoft Outlook for Mac, available in Office 365 for Mac, takes the place of Entourage and offers major improvements over its predecessor in the areas of user interface, calendaring, backup/recovery, search, integration with Windows, collaborative computing, performance, conferencing, voice mail, mobile access, IM and presence. The Outlook database has been redesigned to save email, contacts, and calendars in their own files. This simplifies file management, allows email files to be searched directly in Spotlight, and allows you to use Time Machine for backup and recovery. Account setup has been simplified by making it easy to add accounts based on Exchange or on leading email services. Outlook's unified folders eliminate the need to examine separate email accounts and folders for email, drafts, sent items, deleted items.

Microsoft Entourage ExpertiseProgent's macOS and OS X integration specialists and Microsoft certified support experts can help your company to upgrade from the discontinued Entourage email client for Microsoft Exchange so your Mac users can collaborate with colleagues who run Outlook client. Microsoft Entourage allowed you to utilize Microsoft Exchange account to send and receive your email, access your Exchange global address list, sync up your calendar and contacts, and invite people to meetings. Progent can help you configure a secure and reliable information network that replaces Entourage for Mac with an up-to-date email client that can access your Exchange Server.

Office Web App ConsultingMost of the extensive capabilities of Microsoft Exchange are available to Mac, iPhone, and iPad users via any full-featured web browser by utilizing the significantly enhanced Outlook Web App (previously called Outlook Web Access). Outlook Web App allows macOS, Mac OS X and Apple iOS users to access e-mail, voice mail, IM, and SMS text via Apple Safari and other popular web browsers. Powerful features of Outlook Web App include conversation grouping for enhanced thread control, extended browser support, MailTips to help avoid disruptive or inappropriate email usage, an unlimited size single-page message folder to eliminate the guesswork and delays associated with manually advancing pages, a nickname cache to streamline email addressing, advanced filtering and search, calendar sharing, new presence indicators within contact lists, client-based IM, ActiveSync support for SMS text messages, and user-defined favorites filters (such as unread messages) for fast retrieval of task-relevant information.
