I am new to the forum and I was unable to
To find an answer for my query. That is the reason I post in the newby section, so I do not annoy someone if I have missed the answer.
Anyway ... I have installed outlook on wine-1.4-rc4 successfully and I believe it is stable as an application. However I need to connect to an ActiveSync Exchange and I am unable to. There are quite a lot alluring statements in the terminal, but before I start pasting actual output I would like to know ... Is it possible to sync a wine-driven Outlook with an ActiveSync Exchange?
I am an employee of a large corporation, so please do not come up with ideas of changing the server part .. I just have no access to it and will never have one.
You might want to check out/post to the winehq site, as you seem to be ahead of some of the comments posted there. CrossOver office, the CodeWeaver version of wine should run everything correctly; I'd ask on that site too. If I get a chance, I'll try it myself, as I too have an MS Exchange driven corporate workplace.
Thanks for the tip. As it seems I will need crossover for more than one reason. I am willing to pay, but I still don't know which version will do. Please if there is no free way to do that, then advise which crossover I should purchase.
I don't see the advantages with using Crossover here. If you have to pay to get your Windows software running it would make more sense to actually by a Windows license then a Crossover license, especially if this is software that you need to get work done.
Crossover gives the software a silver medal, that means you can't use it to its fully extent, which you can do on Windows.
I have license for the Outlook, so that is not an issue .. I am not cracking anything.
Oh, you got me wrong with that. I didn't want to say that you are cracking. All I wanted to say that, IMHO, it doesn't make sense to buy a Crossover license to get Outlook almost working (silver medal only), especially if you have to rely on that for work. It would be better to simply buy a Windows license (or use one you already have) to get Outlook working 100% and reliable. Since this for getting your work done I would not rely on Wine or Crossover.
