10.4: Spotlight searches with Entourage and Apple Mail System 10.4
If you use the latest version of Entourage (v11.2.3), which is Spotlight-enabled, in conjunction with Apple Mail, you will notice that when you do a search in Spotlight for mail messages, you get search results from both Entourage and Apple Mail. In some cases, they may be duplicate emails depending on how you have mail set up.

To get mail messages only for Entourage, you have to put the ~/Library/Mail folder in the privacy section of Spotlight's pane in System Preferences.

To get mail messages only for Apple Mail, just uncheck "Include Entourage items in Spotlight search results" in the Spotlight section of the General Preferences of Preferences in the Entourage menu bar.

I know this may sound simple, but it is undocumented until today.

So are you saying that if you untick "Mail Message" in the "Search Results" tab of the Spotlight System Preferences the Entourage results won't show up?

Acutally, the latest is 11.2.4. :-D

The .2.3 update is when they added spotlight to Entourage. Lightning fast on my Quad. It's been working with Mail all along.
