Mac OS X, OWA 2007, Public Folders

Apple, Awesome, Exchange

Own Web Now legal strongly recommended that I do not publish this blog post on our corporate blog to answer a question from Diana, Amy Babinchak’s techie. Personally I don’t see what’s wrong with it, if you see a problem with it please let me know. 🙂

Put on the thick gloves, this one is going to get dirty. I would like to preface with the fact that most Mac users are dirty unemployed losers, so the odds that a Mac user would see this article, or even be capable of reading, are slim to none.

Exchange 2007 Outlook Web Access includes the ability for users to access Public Folders in the rich version of Outlook Web Access. This feature is only available to the Microsoft Internet Explorer users 6.0 and better, you know.. business computers.

So what if you have a Mac? Well… You go browse myspace, upload a photo of your nipple ring to Facebook, maybe record yourself on your camera and share with your other middle school friends and after you’re done with that and grow up you get a real business computer one day? Cause you’re not getting Public Folders through OWA without paying for Entourage.

First, download a real web browser. Don’t worry, Disney’s Toontown Online will still work on your Mac, but the latest versions of Firefox will let you actually use your Mac for something useful. In the address bar type:


You will be given a nastygram about how doing this will void your warranty. Yeah. For the free software that comes with no guarantees or warantees of any kind. Do the math. My bad, I forgot that you paid twice as much as you should have for a computer.

Create a new string, called general.useragent.override. You will want to right click 🙂

If your brain didn’t explode looking for the right button on your retard mouse/touchpad, just hold Ctrl down when you click. De-de-de.

Set the value to: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0b; Windows NT 6.0)

That’s all there is to it. You still have a Mac so you’re still required to ride the short bus to school But you now have Public Folders.

Now you have more than just a shiny toy.

My name is Vlad, and I’m a PC.

* Believe me, this is the clean version.
