'Aha!' moment

|

Occasionally, I receive requests for help with modifying an AppleScript I wrote for Macintosh administrators to assist their Entourage users to connect with Exchange. See “How to use AppleScript to connect Entourage to Exchange Server 2000 sp2, 2003 or 2007”.

Today I received one such request for an administrator, Mike, who had a need to also set his users’ encoding preferences for attachments to Windows (MIME/base64) because his Exchange Server 2007 server is stripping the contents of outgoing message attachments. Mike said he’d “spent 4 hours googling and reviewing every script at macscripters”.

My first line in response to him was, “I’ll make it easy on you. It’s not possible to script any of Entourage’s preferences. :-(“

But then I had an Aha! moment.
