Setting Out Of Office

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Processor: Intel
Email Client: Exchange

I am having a problem setting out of office. I can connect to the Exchange Server (Exchange 2007 - I don't know what SP) and send/receive mail, access the GAL, view public folders, view free/busy information and other people's calendars, etc. However when I try to set Out of Office I get a message saying I cannot connect to the Exchange server. Any ideas where I can start to diagnose this problem.

Well you might not have the proper rollup on the server.
You can always set up the OOF through the OWA page in your web browser 
directly,

Unfortunately I can't use the OWA capability as they haven't made this available yet. Hopefully they will soon. <br><br>I have also tried upgrading to EWS but the server mustn't be at the right build for this as it will not install. <br><br>Is there anyway I can find out the server version/roll up without going to IT support. Macs are not officially supported so I won't get support for connecting my Mac &amp; Entourage to Exchange. <br><br>Thanks for the idea.

Really? ?Is your account even set as a proper Exchange account then or 
are you using it as IMAP?

Then there is no way you can set the OOF from your Mac. That's a 
feature that's only available on the EWS version of Entourage.

Well you can from the OWA page, but if it's not available, I don’t see 
what else you could do.

I wouldn't know. I'm trying to stay away from Outlook as much as I can,
You might repost this question in an Outlook group....

Best way to set up profiles for deployment?

Internet options and ports set up for CC/Debit processing

I cannot set the maximum date for the axis of a line chart
I have a line chart with a (horizontal) date axis along the bottom. Currently I have data from Sep-2002 to Sep-2009. All of this data is shown on the chart and the axes also go from Sep-2002 to Sep-2009. My problem is that I want to set the maximum of the date axis to an earlier date (say Jun-2008) hence hiding the later part of the data (without deleting the original data). But Excel 2007 will not let me do this (apparently). I have selected the axes and fixed the "maximum" date at an earlier date (like Jun-2008). Surprisingly, Excel leaves the axis exactly the s...
