I'm just about ready to delete Entourage from my mac. It's driving me insane.
Here's my situation: I bought a new workstation (dual 2.0Ghz G5 with OS 10.4), installed all my apps from scratch, purchased a copy of MS Office 2004 for Mac, installed all the updates, patches, etc. I setup Entourage for Exchange and got to work.
Now, whenever I try to view, read, whatever, Entourage just goes to lunch for 3 or 4 seconds. I eventually got wise and popped up my "Progress" window to see what Entourage was doing in the background. I found that it's 'synchronizing'...CONSTANTLY. It never stops. I even turned OFF synchronization in the account settings, and yet it continues to sync. Seems that when it syncs, I get lags where I can't view messages, select different message or type (or, if I continue to type blindly, nothing appears on screen for seconds, then appears all at once in a flash)
I'm about to dump this app and go over to Mail, which I've avoided due to some features that I simply like better in Entourage.
Any help for a frustrated soul?
