Use AppleScript to synchronize Entourage mail
Authored by: JazzDude on Jul 23, '04 05:42:12PM

The problem on my machines is, once you've launched Entourage (it is in my login items), the Database Daemon starts and keeps ~Documents/Microsoft User Data/Main Identity/Database open, even if you've quit Entourage. When you attempt to replace the file with a newer version you get an error stating the file couldn't be replaced because it is in use. I learned that you can turn off "Office Notifications" but then, I have all events and appointments in my Entourage calendar, some of them having a reminder set. So need the Database Daemon to run. Unless I'm syncing my Database files, that is.

The rest of the script just automates mounting the remote volume, copying the MS User Data folder over and unmounting the volume.
