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.
