MacTech Magazine features ‘Introduction to AppleScripting Microsoft Entourage’

One of the reasons I really enjoy using Microsoft Entourage is that it’s scriptable. I can report all my spam in one fell swoop to SpamCop, access my company’s GAL from home, organize messages in my Inbox and send quick canned messages. Scripting isn’t for everyone but it is an essential tool in a company administrator’s toolbelt or great timesaver for a Mac poweruser. I received my May issue of MacTech Magazine today and was . . .

In the Beginning

In the beginning, there was Claris Emailer. Mac users came to know and love the application. When Apple banished Emailer saying ‘you can no longer be developed‘, users cried in anguish. Fleeing the land of the banished, Emailer’s developers took their ideas and moved to the land of Microsoft.

Pulbic Beta for Entourage 2008

“Will there be a public beta for Entourage?”

The answer is highly unlikely. There has never been a public beta for the Mac Office applications. Software Activation is not available for Mac Office. Without software activation, the software pirates could produce bootleg copies of the software from the beta version.

Microsoft has offered a “Test Drive” version for both Office X and Office 2004. I’m confident that there will be a “Test Drive” for Office . . .

Use spacebar to view messages

Rather than using your mouse, use the spacebar to easily go through your mail. Tap the spacebar to go to the next message, or hold down the spacebar to scroll down through a message slowly and continuously.
