To set up Outlook 2007 and Scalix, here are the steps that need to be followed:
Download the scalix connector from your server, save it to your desktop. You cannot run the connector installer from a network drive, it will silently fail the install.
Run the connector installation.
Launch Outlook, or go to Control Panel -> Mail.
Create a new profile.
Outlook 2007 wants to autodetect the mail server settings, and will let you think it did so correctly. IT DOES NOT, it detects an Exchange server, and then flakes out all over the place when you actually try to use it.
Check "manually configure mail server settings".
Select "Scalix Server" from the available options
Follow the prompts to set up your account.
Once you've launched Outlook, you may need to set up a public folder as an Outlook Address Book source:
Right-click the folder, -> Properties
Under the Outlook Address Book tab, click 'use as an Outlook Address Book'.
Outlook should now be up and running. Make sure to send a test message *to an address outside the building*, and make sure you receive replies.
