    I want to return to Apple Mail. I dont want Entourage right now. I seem to have lost my Apple Mail access and cannot receive my mail or send it through that server. I want my Apple mail back again. My phone # is xxxxxxxxxxx

  • I have edited your comment. Posting your phone number for the public is not a good idea.
    To switch email clients, you simply quit Entourage and open Apple Mail and set up your account. If you are having trouble you would need to ask on an Apple Discussions forum.

  • You would select this in Apple Mail. You really should be asking all these questions on the Apple Discussions groups. If your question is about Entourage, we can help, but we don’t support Apple Mail.

    I am having major difficulty with my Entourage email program. Anyone out there who could provide some feedback? Thanks!

    Hi Don,
    I’m afraid you will have to be much more specific before other users can help you. If you are familiar with newsgroups, try microsoft.public.mac.office.entourage; if you prefer using a webforum (which is actually a mirror to the newsgroup), try this page. Be sure to indicate the version of Entourage and Mac OS X you are using, and be as specific as possible when describing your problem.

  • Very interesting article – Author Special Thanks

  • Andy

    Suddenly I stopped receiving Entourage mail on my Mac and Blackberry. All other Internet connections are working fine. Yje mail is coming through to the server. Any ideas? Cpuld it be as simple as a setting that has been inadvertently changed?

  • Hi Andy, You haven’t provided enough info to even start with a suggestion. The type of problem you are describing would be best dealt with on the Entourage newsgroup or the YouTalk list. How to get individual help
