SMB and Outlook Connections in Apple OS X Mavericks

After the pain that I have had in the past establishing SMB or Outlook connections after Apple OS upgrades, I was little gun-shy to install Mavericks this morning.  But, after searching the internet for people having problems (and not finding any) I decided to take the plunge.

Well, I’m very happy to be able to report that I have had no problems connecting to our server at work via SMB and no problems getting Outlook to connect either.  (insert huge sign of relief)

So, what’s the reason for this post?  Well…my searches this morning didn’t yield people having issues, but I also couldn’t find success stories either, which left me a little uncertain.  I’m posting this so that people can see a success story, and maybe have a platform for people to discuss issues that they have had in the comments.

Have you had problems connecting to SMB or Outlook after the Mavericks upgrade?  Leave a comment…maybe we can all figure it out together.
