Has anyone had any experience with using the built-in mac firewall /w entourage. Does entourage fully work with only essentials services setting on?

    I'm looking for someone that is currently using it like this, and has been for a while. I noticed in selective application mode, it does prompt for entourage.

    yes it does work with only essential services active. although nothing ever gets listed in the system pref's lower window pane while you keep the firewall in that mode.
    When switching to the more aggressive "Set access...." mode the firewall will prompt you the first time Entourage tries to connect to the server.
