Entourage a close 2nd
Authored by: innate on Jun 09, '06 03:28:17PM

I love Entourage but it seems outdated. My current favorite is Apple Mail which is just simple and reliable. Hopefully the next release of Entourage will break new ground.

Entourage a close 2nd
Authored by: allenwatson on Jun 11, '06 05:37:42AM
I love Entourage for a few reasons: 1) high degree of customization possible by AppleScript; 2) killer rules/filters (but could stand improvement); 3) Saved searches for custom viewing (e.g. "Received since launch" or "From or To John Doe"); tight integration with calendar, to do list, notes, and contacts; 4) Project Manager; 5) "online access" to POP accounts. Weaknesses: can't create complex HTML messages (only simple ones); slow searching (improved now that Spotlight is integrated); no "format=flowed". The current version is 2004; it is definitely outdated. I believe the new version will be dynamite, probably late this year or early next.

Entourage a close 2nd
Authored by: RussellK on Jun 16, '06 06:23:00AM

I don't know about CREATING complex HTML messages in Entourage (by all accounts ths doesn't seem possible), but just this week I came across a script (called "Send Complex HTML with Inline Files 2004" and widely available online) which allows you to embed existing comlex HTML pages into Entourage messages. A couple quick tests on my part have turned up no real problems...just the usual caveats to keep your HTML use simple...

I just wish Entourage would provide better integration with Apple's AddressBook and iCal (especially). I use Entourage because of the better interface and a better set of mail handling rules. Hopefully Apple will improve Mail... I'd rather use it...

With the latest Office update, the integration with Address Book and iCal is actually pretty good. My only complaint is that you can only sync one Entourage and iCal calendar (I would have liked to sync both my personal and work calendars).
