How to use Entourage X and Outlook same database


I constantly switch from MacOS X (Entourage X) and MacOS 9 (Outlook Express)
and check my mail (Imap account) on both systems.

Then, there's a way to use the same database folder with my address book and
configurations on the Entourage and Outlook, because right now, when I add a
new mail address, I have to add manually to Outlook Express on the MacOS 9
and then (if I don't forget it), in Entourage X on the OS X.

Thanks, Junior Hernandez.

Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel Email Client: pop how do i restore calendar? there were many duplicates in entourage which had come from ical so i deleted the ical calendars & re-sync'd - the settings in entourage were supposed to delete ical & only use the events in entourage. for whatever reason the whole ******* thing is now empty. typically i dont have access to my time machine backup. is there any way to restore? i've just about had it with this product, never hated anything so much.

I've noticed, since I've upgraded to Panther, that occassionally Entourage will hold the CPU open at full steam. I have a utility that monitors the CPU usage and by quitting Entourage and restarting it, everything goes back to normal. I think Microsoft needs an update to Entourage for Panther as I have noticed a couple of other odd behaviors. Kerry

Entourage deletes package documents
1 replies , 2/26/2007, 5:09:02 AM
Hi, I am trying to use the Share Project feature of Entourage 2004 (11.2.5), and have noticed a rather alarming bug that has destroyed several of my OmniGraffle and OmniOutliner documents. After selecting an Omnioutliner document to share to the other members of the team, I noticed that the original document is still on my local drive, but the package is empty. The copy of my OmniOutliner file on the server is contains the data. To reproduce this bug: 1. Create a new project. 2. Select a package document file to share 3. Freak ( :D) as your local copy is now missing its data! Surely one would think that four years is enough time for Microsoft to get on the bandwagon and understand that packages are bundles not folder, and to treat them as such, or are we supposed to use Word, Excel, Powerpoint for everything! ha! </rant>

Entourage 2004 & Exchange Worked and NOW it Doesn't
2 replies , 12/15/2005, 7:47:33 PM
The first time I set up an exchange connection with entourage it was not a problem. I received email and could see public files. But, one month after setting it up, it quit connecting to the server. Nothing I have tried (reinstalling, recreating exchange connection, etc) has helped me reconnect. The weird thing is that my friend who works for the same company had the same thing happen to him but earlier. It worked and then about a month later it did not. Here is what I have noticed and may be the clue. When I first set up exchange, in the "edit exchange server" box my tabs were: Account Settings, Mail, Directory, Advanced, Delegate, Security. Now, they are: Account Settings, Options, Advanced, Delegate, Security. The key element that is missing from the edit box are the SYNCHRONIZATION OPTIONS under the advanced tab. They no longer exist. One of my guesses is that it is connected to the service pack 2 update or some other update. HELP please.

I installed a new hard drive and can't get my address book and old emails from Entourage v.X on my old HD into Entourage v.X on my new HD. I have gone to Mactopia and Microsoft but nothing has worked. I have switched identities, dragged folders-Users, Identities, Microsoft User Data, etc.-to the desktop and tried importing, dragging, whatever and no dice. When I try to import, I get a message saying the file is not tab-or comma-deleted. What else can I try? TIA.

Entourage keeps crashing !!!

I am running Entourage X on OS X Jaguar - Powerbook G4. Ever since this afternoon the Sent Items screen is showing only a couple of e-mails (the last ones sent) followed by a blank banner in the upper window. The e-mails are there (if you click on the blank banner you will see the contents on the lower window). If I go down the upper window the blank banner gets sometimes bigger but sometimes it disappear. Problem is that seconds after that the program crashes. I tried to reinstall it and things got worse. Am I missing some updates or patches? Please Help !!!

entourage quits
5 replies , 2/26/2004, 4:38:19 AM
Help. I cannot launch entourage at all. After the ID window it gives a message that it automatically quit, etc. It does not matter where I try to launch it from, always the same result. The other Office products work fine. I am the administrator account on this computer. My wife and daughters have other accounts, and Entourage launches fine on their accounts. So, it won't launch on my account only and other programs including the Explorer browser work fine. Suggestions please.

Entourage 2008, Meeting Invitations, and Blackberry's
4 replies , 2/15/2008, 2:07:26 PM
We are using Entourage 2008 connected to the corporate Exchange server, with the Blackberry Enterprise Server. Meeting invitations that are accepted in Entourage are not deleted from the inbox of the Blackberry. They appear to be in the Deleted Items folder in Entourage. They are also in the Deleted Items folder on the server (as verified by OWA). I tested accepting meeting invitations from Outlook and OWA. In both cases, the original invite was moved to the deleted items folder and deleted from the inbox of the Blackberry. It appears, then, that Entourage does not actually move teh message from the inbox to deleted, but does something else that would cause the pointer to the message to be lost by the Blackberry. Is this the case? Is there a setting somewhere that controls this action that could be changed to prevent the problem of the lost pointer?

New scripts and updates for Entourage 2004: NEW: Sync Entourage-iCal 1.0 [for Entourage 2004 only] Sync Entourage-Address Book [PANTHER] 2.5 [free update - with new features for Entourage 2004] Export-Import Entourage X 1.3 [free update - with versions of the Excel scripts for Excel 2004] All available at <> Direct Downloads: <> Sync Entourage-iCal 1.0 <> Sync Entourage-Address Book 2.5 <> Export-Import Entourage X 1.3 Sync Entourage-iCal synchronizes Entourage 2004 and iCal in OS 10.3 (Panther). It allows you to maintain Entourage as your centralized Personal Information Manager while at the same time taking advantage of the direct access provided to iSync, iChat, iPod, .Mac online, and more by OS X's iCal. Almost all Entourage fields sync to iCal and back, with any unmapped fields recorded in event Notes. You can also sync Entourage reminders to iCal alarms, including Email alarms, even for Todos which are not directly scriptable. You can keep both applications in constant synchronization by running the script at any time, or automatically every night if you wish. Sync Entourage-iCal has only two modes: 1. Demo Mode: Free for 14 days. Full-featured - sync all calendar events and tasks/todos, and update for 14 days 2. Full Mode: $19.00. Unlimited: Full features with iCal 1.5.x and Entourage 2004, including free updates. All calendar events and tasks/todos in both applications synced and updated. Sync Entourage-Address Book 2 [PANTHER] 2.5 synchronizes Entourage and Apple's Address Book in OS 10.3 (Panther). It has been upgraded to use the new features of Entourage 2004, but will continue to work as an update in Entourage X as well. New in v2.5 (new features in Entourage 2004 only): � Works in both Entourage 2004 and X � Adds syncing of email labels (home/work/other) in 2004 � Syncs new IM Addresses (Instant Message) fields in 2004 � Only modified Entourage groups are checked fast - every time - in 2004: one fewer option � You can sync deletions of groups and group members even in Two-Way Sync � Syncs projects from 2004 to Address Book notes � Sets Entourage to Work Offline for speed every time � Avoids bug in Entourage X that prevented contacts in Address Book from being deleted. Also New in v2.5 (Entourage X): v2.5 works around a bug in Entourage X's AppleScript that prevented contacts in Address Book from being deleted when Checking for Deletions and finding deletions in Entourage. (The bug does not exist in Entourage 2004.) If you are updating from v2.x: > Just drag the Sync Entourage-Address Book 2 folder from the Disk Image you > download and unstuff to the same location on your hard disk as your previous > copy of the same folder, replacing. That's it! Just carry on. Note: you can go on using v2.1.1 or earlier in Entourage X and even in 2004 (no new features, of course), but there is a bug fix in v2.5 you should have, even in X. Export-Import Entourage X 1.3 contains: 50 scripts to export and import almost everything � Contacts, Groups, Calendar Events, Tasks, Notes, Messages, Folders, Accounts, Signatures, Mailing Lists and Categories � from one identity of Entourage X or 2004 to any other, to and from Entourage 2001, and to transfer Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes to and from other PIM programs on the Mac and Windows, with special converters for Microsoft Outlook, Excel and other programs. You can import/export between all versions of Entourage, Outlook, Palm Desktop and other PIMs which can handle tab-delimited text or comma-separated files. v1.3 is for both Entourage X and Entourage 2004. It includes a new folder Xcel Extras 2004 for use with Excel 2004: continue to use the scripts in Excel Xtras X for Excel X. -- Paul Berkowitz b*********

Entourage & disappearing internet "pie" wedge
0 replies , 12/14/2004, 4:45:15 PM
I have Office X, Entourage (version 10.0.0). I have recenntly changed my airport base station with an airport extreme base station. I notice that while II am using my browser, In can see the pie shaped wedge in the toolbar, but when I switch to Entourage it disappears completely from sight. Often I'm still connected to the internet, but the iicon disappears. There is another problem, which I'm not sure is related. Often, when II open the computer ( Powerbook G4) or awaken it from sleep mode, I have been disconnected from the iinternet. I have to go into Location>Network Preferences to reconnect. Even then I sometimes get a error message. I have to do it a couple of times before it finally reconnects. Any ideas?? Thanks, Carl

Syncing Entourage with a new Palm
2 replies , 11/25/2005, 5:57:34 PM
I got my first new Palm in two years. I see that the PIM apps have been expanded; it can now store birthdays, pictures, IM names and web sites. Also, you can assign a category to a calendar event/appointment and give it a special color - just like in Entourage. Can Entourage be set up to sync up these new additions to Palm's PIMs? I'm pretty sure that it's not something I'm doing wrong - I think that an update to Entourage's Palm conduit is needed. If this is the case, are there any plans to update the conduit?

Hi, My hard disk recently crashed, but email messages were recovered via data recovery. While waiting for data recovery, I reinstalled Entourage on a new disk and have been using it for 10 days. Is it possible to import my old messages into my newly installed version (same version) without deleting the new messages? Basically, can I add the old messages to the new database? Both are Entourage v10.1.6 from MS Office X. I'm running OS X 10.4.10 on a G5. Thanks. Mike

I was thinking just show it like you see when you are scheduling a meeting in your own organization. No detail just boxes showing the time slot is not available.
