Question about Computers & Internet

My entourage is apparently full and I need to rebuild it. I cannot open it and when I use the option and reboot as told on Microsoft site, the window opens and let's me click rebuild, but then the next window says "preparing to rebuild" but nothing ever happens, even after hours of leaving it open. Can you help me get a rebuild? I have a lot I can delete.

How do I rebuild the outlook 2011 for mac email database?


Hi Scott
I am a Mac User also.
Ran my own Mac repair business for 18 years...
I remember this particular problem with Entourage/Outlook for Mac
I stopped using Outlook & Office years ago because it goes corrupt when too many emails are stored in the email data file. About the 1gb file size. A well known problem. I use Apple Mail these days. Note..It will Import emails from Entourage.
All this data is kept in the Microsoft User Data folder inside Documents Folder... if my memory is correct.
Make a backup copy of this folder if you can... before fiddling.
I used a Microsoft Utility Program called "Microsoft Database Utility" to fix and clean up the Email data file. Then Entourage opened up the email again and I got rid of excessive emails containing photos.
I don't even have MS Office installed on this Mac any more but I have located "Microsoft Database Utility" program which is about 2.3mb in size. It's probably inside your MS Office / Office folder already. Use Apple Spotlight to search or... a free program called EasyFind works great.
Open the program and point it to the Microsoft User Data folder where Entourage email data file is located. To locate the actual email data file...Use "Cmd I" to find size of suspect file. The email data file is a Fairly big one.
I am using a 2007 MacBook Pro running OSX 10.9 Maverics with the free "Pages" for reading Word Doc's & "Numbers" for Excel SS and it all works seamlessly. Dont have a need or want to pay for MS Office anymore as it never got many updates anyhow.

Hope this Fixes your Problem
Cheers
Trevor

On Side Subject.... Depending on age of your Mac...You can get Maverics OSX10.9 for free. Download the flu .DMG file. Use CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner from Bombich Software) to do a full Clone Backup of your current Mac HD to another external hard drive before installing new clean OSX 10.9 system then you get asked to Migrate your old system data back and you end up with a new Mac and all your data in place. Get free "MacTracker" to get your specific Mac Specs & what max OS it will go up to.

IPad How to transfer or sync content to your computer


iTunes, iBooks, and App Store content


By default, iTunes Store, iBookstore, and App Store content on your device will automatically transfer to your computer. If it doesn't, you can use the Transfer Purchases option in iTunes to ensure that all iTunes Store, iBookstore, and App Store content is transferred to your iTunes library. Learn about transferring purchased content.

Photos

You can import photos or videos into your computer that you have saved on your iPad (for example, in Mail or Safari, or when using the iPad Camera Connection Kit).

Note: You cannot transfer photos that you synced to your device from a computer. You can only transfer photos or videos to your computer that you saved on the iPad itself.

Contacts, Calendars, Bookmarks, and Notes

You can sync contacts, calendars, bookmarks, and notes with applications on your computer across multiple computers and devices. You can find the sync settings for these in iTunes on your computer. With your iPad connected to the computer, select your iPad (under Devices). Then click the Info tab.

Hi I have a problem with entourage. The icon is still there and entourage opens when I hit the icon but all that comes up is the tool bar for entourage. When I run along the options on the tool bar ie...


one of the necessary files might have gotten deleted. If possible, I'd suggest attempting to reinstall entourage. If there's nothing dire that you would lose, or if everything is saved on mail servers (such as gmail or hotmail or something) it might be worth giving mail.app a shot, if that's an option.
http://www.microsoft.com/mac/downloads has links for downloads, depending on which version you have, downloading a trial for installation purposes and re-entering your serial might solve problems you might be having.

If reinstalling isn't possible and you absolutely have to have what was in your entourage, some of your information could be saved in /Users//Documents/Microsoft User Data
I don't use entourage personally so I'm not an expert on it.
They also stopped shipping Microsoft Office for Mac with entourage, the latest version with it is 2008, the Home and Student editions of Office 2011 for Mac do not come with a mail client at all, the business edition comes with Outlook.
Hopefully that helps a little bit. But like I said, I don't use entourage or else I'd probably be able to offer a more concise solution.

Unable to receive mail in Entourage from POP server.


Not really sure what is wrong but would suggest that you check your account setup under tools/Accounts and see if the setting for advanced settings for receive is set to "This POP service requires a secure connection" is checked or not. It depends on what your ISP requires

I have a MAC OSX Version 10.5.8 and Microsoft Entourage 2004 Version 11.4.0. Since 25 July 2009 I have been unable to receive or send e-mails using Entourage. I get a message saying Access Forbidden. ...


Hi,
Send & Recieve Basics:

1. If you can receive but not send then you have a bad SMTP configuration
2. If you can send but not receive you have a bad POP or IMAP configuration

You can try re-entering info.
You can delete account and create a new one.
Using copy/paste can result in an extra space being added. Type carefully.
Check your Keychain for corruption.

Entourage chrashes when I delete sent messages


Hi,

If you already rebuilt the Database and still crashing, that means that your Database(Main Identity) is already corrupted and you need to start a fresh database.

Try deleting the messages in your Webmail if you're using IMAP account. Most likely, that message that was stucked in your deleted items folder is causing the issue.

If you have TimeMachine enabled, restore to the date when Entouarge last worked.
