Question about Microsoft Entourage For Mac for Mac

1 Answer

MS Entourage is very slow - the spinning wheel of death

Have tried everything to get this email program working faster - have a 6 mo old macbook w/2G and 80G HD w/the intel chip. Everything works great except Entourage, part of the pre-installed MS Office for Macs.
A billion thanks.

Michael, if you have the option can you use IMAP instead of POP3 for your email server settings? If your email service provides IMAP you might try it as it may appear to work faster than POP3.

    Try rebuilding the Database.
    Search Database Utility from Spotlight(magnifying glass on the upper right of screen).
    Choose Database Utility
    On the Database utility window, click on Main Identity then tick Rebuild Database
    After rebuilding, click done, then quit.
    Test Entourage.

    Note: Please don't tick on Compact Database option as it will delete emails.

I can't get to the page to send my son in MO. an email. I would email him every night and I haven't been able to in days. I have tried everything, but nothing has worked. Thanks, Mavis Harris

If you are using a website to send emails, your browser may have been hijacked. If you can navigate to google and search for a program called ADW CLeaner. This will help you greatly.

If it is a mail client issues, ie Outlook or Windows Mail. It could be an application issue.

Id advise going to a local computer repair shop that offers free assistance in matters like these. They might be able to help you over the phone even.

Another suggestion would be to call you internet service provider as they will offer free tech support if the email was given to you by them.

Hannstar k mv-4 motherboard low performance

The cpu is very cheaply made.For roughly $47 for the cpu don't expect much.You don't have much cache if this is the chip you have.To run programs faster it would need more.Some software needs more cpu power to run better and more cache to run faster.
Hope the link helps.
Level 1 cache size ? 2 x 32 KB 4-way set associative instruction caches
2 x 24 KB 6-way set associative data caches Level 2 cache size ? 2 x 512 KB 8-way set associative caches

How do I connect a MacBook 5 and a bluetooth speaker?

Not only do you need a bluetooth connection, you also need an audio program that can access the bluetooth connection.
Like not everything (almost nothing) will work on every USB connection on a PC without the correct driver and program, anything you try to connect with bluetooth, needs the driver and program.

My Nancy Drew computer game won't work

Hi longview924,

Unfortunately there is no way to make that game run on your mac. Your mac uses the older powerPC architecture (all G3, G4 and G5 macintosh machines use this architecture) but the game requires that you have a mac using the newer intel architecture.

I found the details of the system requirements here:

Intel and PowerPC processors are very different in how they work (Intel chips are CISC chips and powerPC chips are RISC chips), which is why there is no way around it. This is also the reason why apple dropped support for the powerPC architecture in mac OS 10.6 upwards.

Without meaning to sound harsh, it may be time to consider an upgrade - macs are very expensive but the intel macbooks are leaps and bounds faster than the powerPC range :)

Macbook DVD drive

I wonder if the DVD is a faster disc than the Mac can handle. I know that when I use a 40x CD disc on a G5 optical drive, it's no go. But if I use a 4x disc, it's a happy camper. I bought an external drive to handle the faster discs.

Backup my PC seems like a good programme but you know what Windows Live have a programme in their "One Care" Antivirus solution programme. Its called one care solution and does a clone of your entire HD and it copies everything and took 6 minutes to do a 80G I couldnt believe it those brainey MIcrosofters......wicked
