Here's the long story. There's a friend who has a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro and needs to get it to connect with his company's Microsoft Exchange server that's located off-site. The problem is that Exchange isn't cooperating with his MacBook and his personal assistant is having the same problems so it's not just his computer.Is this a simple solution or is it more complicated then expected.

Exchange doesn't care that it's a MacBook, but it does matter what software they're using – name and version. It also matters what exchange version the company is running.

Also Exchange might need to be set up to allow mobile access via active sync.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

If the PDA is also having problems it sounds like a Exchange issue. But MacOS goes through OWA. Either way sounds like a exchange setup issue because I've never had a problem attaching my Macs to Exchange.

I take personal assistant to be a person, rather than a PDA.

If it's Exchange 2003, it's not going to work.
It needs to be 2007 or 2010.
