I was challenged with getting Office 2007 to run on a Mac Mini.  Specifically Outlook 2007 because Thunderbird doesn't work well with the calendar and appoinments.

I took a few notes...

1. Install PlayOnMac
2. click install
3. click "non listed program"
Note:  I initially used the Office 2007 script but it was missing a few critical components.

4. Install Office 2007 (mine was enterprise)
5. Do not select updates
6. Do not reboot
7. Create PlayOnLinux shortcuts for Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc
8. Reboot Windows with Wine:  Configure/ Wine tab/ Windows Reboot
9. Install Components: Internet Explorer 8
Note:  IE8 also installs msxml3, Service Pack 3 & msls

10. Reboot Windows with Wine again

Outlook configuration

1. launch outlook
2. Launch Outlook
3. Exchange, pop, smtp, imap
4. Check manual setup
5. Next
6. Internet E-mail
7. Next
8. Your Name:
9. E-mail Address:

Server Information
Account Type: imap
Incoming mail server:
Outgoing mail server (SMTP):
username: 
password: 

Test Account Settings

Conclusion:
Outlook actually ran very fast and didn't need a copy of Windows to run it.
PlayOnMac worked perfectly as long as you had IE8, msxml3 & Service Pack 3 installed.  Outlook saw our Exchange Server and credentials worked perfectly.

One thing I noticed is the email you create will not load into the default PST file unless it has the exact same name as the local profile you are logged in as in OSX.
Naturally Outlook just creates another PST file for your emails.

Also, the Calendar and Contacts did not automatically populate from the Exchange Server.
These will have to be populated manually.

This could for sure be set up as a script or added to the existing script. which wine version?

What does the script use? We should compare your install with the script, and see where changes can be made.

Script uses 1.2.3 and it was super buggy.
As far as I could tell, no Service Pack 3 installed, msls, or msxlm3 installed.
We initially had a problem with crashing if you tried to resize or move Outlook.
But after re-installing manually that fixed the problem.
The only Reason I installed IE8 was for the Service Pack 3, but I think Internet Explorer is necessary for Office... not sure why?

Hmm. We can totally get that set up in the script

Im pretty sure it needs IE for internet communication for activation, checking updates, etc..
