Mail or Entourage X?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

Just got Office X (I like it) and OS X 10.2 (ditto). I have been using Mail ever since I switched to 10.0.

I have generally been unhappy with Mail (random long hang times when switching to different mailboxes were the most annoying thing), and was planning to switch to something else as soon as I could.

But then I got Office X and 10.2 at the same time. Mail seems to have been improved quite a bit in 10.2; although hang times--the spinning beach ball of death--do still occur, they are shorter and less frequent. (Of course, in OS 9, Outlook Express never had any "hang times," even on my old iMac.)

So the question is, which would you all recommend: Mail or Entourage X? What has your experience been? What's the buzz? I also use iCal (though I am not a .Mac customer... member... sucker... whatever), so any input on the relative strength of Entourage's calendar vs. iCal would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.

Entourage...its biggest drawback is that it is expensive, and since you bought Office, that is obviated.

Entourage is definately better since you dun have a .mac account and if u have no need to publish calenders

i like entourage intergrated functions such as calender, address book and tasks. As much as i would like to use ical and os X's address book, i still find them slightly inferior to Entourage and thus i am sticking to entourage.

And entourage has a highly efficeint junk filter too!

I am sure u will be happy with entourage.

If you use Hotmail (like the idiot I am) you need Entourage.

Mail because it has full Unicode support. Not a big deal for most people but for multi lingual people it really is
