That is because when you add an Exchange account to Mail or Address Book the default behaviour is to also set up the other components that make up the suite of programs that can be used with Exchange at the same time. However, if you need to configure iCal to connect to Nexus manually follow the instructions below.
To configure iCal to connect to Nexus, open the programme, either from the dock or by finding it in the Applications folder. If this is the first time you have opened iCal, the Setup Assistant will start automatically.
