Make sure you have enough hard disk space available for twice the size of your database. As part of the rebuilding process, Entourage creates a second database file.

1. On the Entourage menu, click Turn Off Office Reminders.
2. Quit Messenger and all Microsoft Office applications, including

Hold down the Option key and re-launch the application. In a few seconds, you¹ll be greeted with the database utility. You can verify and, if necessary, rebuild the Entourage database by using the Microsoft Database Utility.

During the rebuild process, the old files are renamed in case for some reason the rebuild was not successful. After you¹ve rebuilt your database and checked the application¹s performance, you can delete the old version from your hard drive. Do NOT throw away these files unless you are satisfied
with the rebuild:

Old files are named:

If you backup the email data file you wont lose anything but the corruption is normally within the data file.  If you want to start fresh that would be the best option.

If you have Exchange all data should be stored on the server.  To quickly check logon as the user via OWA and see if everything looks OK (this is just in case Entourage was removing email etc from the server).
