Now the first thing we will try to do is rebuild your entourage database
Can you tell me how much free space you have on your hard drive?
Ok do you happen to know the size of your entourage database?
If not please check it by using Get Info on the /Users/you/Documents/Microsoft User Data folder
The first thing we will try and do is rebuild the database but you need to have enough free space for there to be a second copy.
So please tell me the size of the Microsoft User Data Folder so I know if you have enough free space to run this rebuild
We are going to try and rebuild the database
To do so Hold down the Option key and re-launch Entourage. In a few seconds, you'll be greeted with the Entourage Database Utility. Select to rebuild
Now this may take some time please try not to do anything on the computer while this rebuild is running as it will run faster with nothing else going on
Reloading it can cause a few other issues.
So you reloaded entourage while the database was being fixed?
The first thing you are going to need to do is update entourage to do this you need to download all the microsoft updates for it because your database is set for the version of entourage you had installed not the version off the CD.
Please let me know if you need a link to the updates
