I was slightly cautious with what to expect with the new Exchange integration in Mac OS X Snow Leopard, but was surprised to see how easy it was to set up. Added a new Email account, and just from my corporate email address it found my Exchange server and all the correct settings and started syncing all my email, calendar entries and address book. Incredibly simple and no issues. Amazing that Apple makes it this simple, knowing how much hassle I’ve had with Microsoft Outlook and Windows Mobile devices in the past.
One other feature I’m very pleased to see since I don’t have an iPhone (which enables this feature in 10.5, but it’s now enabled by default in 10.6) – iCal now also syncs with my Google contacts.
All in all, so far very pleased with Snow Leopard – $25 for the Exchange integration was worth this much alone, and I haven’t even started to look at the other changes.
