Does anyone know if a similar technique would work with Entourage?

Entourage?
Authored by: spaceMan on Mar 25, '03 05:05:31PM

I didn't use this particular method, but do share Entourage among 2 users on my Mac OSX system.

abstract description:
First ensure you have a working Entourage setup.
2nd: locate the Microsoft User Data folder (most likely in your yourname/documents folder)
3rd - move this to a 'sharable' location, such as users/shared/documents, or another partition
-might have to update permissions for who gets access-
4th - make an alias in the original yourname/documents/Microsoft User Data to the new shared location
Verify everything still works before changing 2nd user.
5th - logout, login as 2nd user.
6th - replace (backup the 2nduser/documents/Microsoft User Data folder first) with an alias to the shared one.

It has been a while since I set this up, so I am going by memory - I will check at home later to see if anything else is needed.
