I am looking at Outlook for Mac (in Office 2011).

I wanted to find out what versions of Exchange are supported, as well as whether MAPI is supported.

I googled and also searched the Microsoft site. I also checked in wikipedia, but it was probably too soon.

I found announcement about Outlook for Mac

I found the system requirements on the official site, but they don't say anything on these topics.

I saw some forum traffic saying: MAPI is not supported, but there was no attribution, so I won't bother to quote it.

Can anyone point me to some official documents that address these concerns?

I am successfully running Outlook 2011 with Exchange 2007. I couldn't find any official documents other than my single test case. – Zac Garrett Oct 27 '10 at 17:44

The help feature in the Outlook 2011 Setup Wizard states that only Exchange 2007 SP1 or higher is supported. Furthermore only EWS (Exchange Web Services), and not MAPI, is supported.
