Use a Quick Look plug-in to view Entourage email in Finder Apps
Viewing Microsoft Entourage email messages in the Finder with Quick Look doesn't work -- it merely displays an icon image. If you have Entourage 2008 and 10.5 or 10.6, there is a way to display the contents of the message in Quick Look. Download the file named Entourage QuickLook Plug-In.dmg from this site, and place a copy in the /Library/QuickLook folder.

This solution is especially useful for scrolling through Spotlight search results in the Finder, with Quick Look opened in full screen mode on a second monitor.

[robg adds: The plug-in should also work in your user's Library/QuickLook folder. I don't use Entourage, though, so I can't test this one.]

This works great. It is so much easier to find the exact email I ma looking for. Before when I'd do a spotlight search for one of my co-workers and a topic up would pop a list of 30 emails that I had to double click individually to see which was the right one. Now I can just quicklook the first one and then use the down arrow to page through them until I find the email I was looking for.
