    This is my last year in high school and I really was looking forward to the native exchange support...but our school uses exchange 03...

    I'm pretty sure the college I go to will have 07, but is there any chance apple will get support for 03 just like the iphone does?

    The better question is will some companies get off their ass and upgrade to Exchange 2007? Innovation within companies can't move on if they stay the world of legacy.

    I have two work email addresses - both on Exchange. My office email moved to Exchange 2003 about 2 years ago, but I can't access it from home.

    My personal work email is running Exchange 2010. What a huge difference that makes.

    Running exchange 2010 as well at work. Love it! Especially the new OWA.

    I wish my employer would upgrade. Since I work for the US government, and innovation is highly discouraged, this isn't happening any time soon. :)

    Of course, the one time I don't want them to upgrade, they decide to do it. We have to be fully "upgraded" to Vista by the end of the year. I was hoping they would hold off for Windows 7.

    2003 is 32 bit, while 2007 is 64 bit. 2003 works just fine and will continue to work fine. Many companies have no need to upgrade their hardware to 64 bit yet. If 2003 was so old, how come Microsoft still sells it? Hint, 32 bit.

    True, but it is still too old to have support added in later by Apple.

    My organization skipped 07 and will be going to 2010... maybe next year. Entourage 08 and Exchange 03 is really not a reliable combo. We spend too much time working around silly issues that an Exchange upgrade would solve.

    2010 is nice, especially OWA. It works with FireFox and Safari.
