Sync Microsoft Entourage?
Authored by: sowsinsk on Dec 16, '03 07:54:21PM

While I enjoy the integration of Apple's organization apps (specifically Address Book, Mail, and iCal), I really *don't* enjoy opening and switching between these different apps to accomplish very related tasks. I love the way Entourage is *completely* integrated--one app, all your organization needs.

I have 2 Macs--one at home, and one at work. Right now, I use iSync to sync up my contacts, calendar, to-dos, etc. It works very well, but I still prefer Entourage's total integration. I really want to use Entourage, but I can't keep the data sync'ed between home and work.

I imagine this tip could help my situation, but Entourage's data file is called 'Database', which holds ALL data for your Entourage identity--even e-mail messages. I am worried that syncing with iDisk would ravage my E-mail (and possibly other data). I wish Entourage's database was split into separate files based on the task (calendar, to-do, etc), but it's not.

Has anyone had any success syncing Entourage between Macs, whether by a "hack" or a program that I haven't found?

Many Thanks.
Steve

Paul Berkowitz has a script that supposedly syncs Address Book with Entourage (though i couldn't get it to work in the 10 minutes I played with it). You can sync those on a machine and then use iSync to keep multiple machines up to date.

I have been using Entourage on 2 machines regularly. I have a very low-tech solution which nevertheless does work.
I close down entourage (and any other Microsoft application) and then simply copy the whole of the "Main Identity" folder to my other machine. (If your rename the target destination folder, you also have a backup if things go wrong).
Presumably, this could be automated via Backup or iSync

Has anyone tried putting the whole Entourage database on their iDisk and sharing it from 2 different computers? My database is over 400MB and iDisk only gives you 100MB to start, so it'd probably be considerably more money to upgrade to that level. I'd be willing to pay for it but it seems like a costly experiment so I thought I'd ask if anyone else has had any success with it.

Thanks,
Evan

I had some luck with the Entourage conduit for Hotsync Manager. I too was using both Mac Apps and Entourage. By setting Entourage to receive its data every time from the handheld rather than syncing. Then I used isync to keep my material in sync between Mac Apps and my Palm Tungsten. The trick to this is that changes cannot be made in Entourage. Of course this doesn't work without a pda.
