Help!!  Everything is gone from my Entourage 2004!!

I launched my Entourage 2004 on my Mac this morning and found all my emails, contacts, etc, are all gone!

I went to "Entourage" -> "Switch Identity" but only identity I'm seeing is "Main Identity" that has no email in it.

Is it possible that someone else used my mac and deleted my identity???
Does my Entourage have the ability to recover deleted identities?

If someone had used my computer, is it possible to find out who used my computer (I'm running MacOS 10.3.7).

Any help will be appreciated!!

See if you can locate your old Database file, the location of which is described here:

If so, try to import it to your existing installation.

Let me know if that works.

My answer would have likely provided a solution. The asker just didn't bother to respond.
