Current Issues with Apple / Macintosh Products & Support
When choosing Apple systems for use with the Thunderbird enterprise IT environment, you need to be aware of some vendor and product issues that are still outstanding.
Microsoft as a vendor has a some bugs and areas that are not supported in their version of Outlook 2011. That issue is that it does not support address book sharing to the point of the native 2010 client does for Windows.
Microsoft Office 2011 products are able to write older versions of the Microsoft Office suite file formats. So all documents will need to be saved in the new file format for compatability with other users.
