Mail or Entourage X?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
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.
