Our company is new to ACT (2013 Premiam Acess via Web) and we are in the process of getting our salespeople (outside of office) set up. Outlook integration is important to us and I foresee a problem with users that have Macs at home and on the road. We are still running Exchange 2003 for email/contacts/calendar and newer versions of Outlook for Mac are not compatible. My research has told me that Entourage 2008 is the last Mac email client compatible with Exchange 2003, but I can not find anything that tells me if Entourage 2008 will also be compatible with ACT 2013. The systems requirements page lists older versions of Outlook, but there is no mention of Entourage (I even looked at the system requirements of ACT versions going back 5 years). We plan to upgrade to Exchange 2010 in a few months that will negate this issue, but I am looking for an interim solution for our pesky Mac lovers. Thank you in advance to anyone that can offer any help.

No version of Microsoft office for mac currently integrates with any version of ACT.
Choices are as follows
1) install windows versions of office plus ACT on a virtual machine (using vm fusion or parralels)
2) Consider Hosting your ACT database along with MS Office in a citrix environment
