We have a situation in our workplace whereby the Mac clients that are using Entourage and outlook are having delays when receiving some mail unlike their counterparts who are using regular computers. The delays usually range from a few hours to even a whole day. The mac users run either Entourage EWS or Outlook 2011 and they are few in number. The strange thing is that no delays occur at all when receiving that particular mail in their iPhones via OWA. Not even deleting and reconfiguring their Outlook and their Entourage accounts eased the situation. Someone please help me correct this situation as it is having a negative impact on our company’s performance.
