I'm using the beta of the new Outlook 2016. When I try to add my own exchange account I constantly get the dialog telling me the server is being redirected. So then I tried to use the 'import' feature and grab the database from my Outlook 2011.

However! Once I hit the install button, I get this error: "the data contains an exchange 2010 SPP1 or older account". I can import the emails.. but I can't get the exchange server to sync. Is the company that supplies my exchange behind on their updates?

Unfortunately, according to this article Office 2016 only supports Exchange 2010 SP2 or higher: http://machow2.com/review-office-2016-mac-beta/
