Entourage Preferred; Not For Better Mail Handling
Authored by: denckwanzer on Jun 09, '06 04:35:01PM

I've been using Mail.app for the past few years and decided to really give Entourage a try about a week and a half ago. Honestly, I think I like Mail.app better; but I like the integration between contacts, calendar, tasks, mail, and projects better in Entourage. There's some strange behavior in some messages in Entourage and I don't like the way it deals with images and attachments. Overall, however, I like the layout and integration better and think that I'll be sticking with Entourage for the foreseeable future.

Entourage Preferred; Not For Better Mail Handling
Authored by: Jai Gill on Jun 09, '06 06:40:48PM
As a business advisor, I have a number of email accounts. Interesting thing though: I deal with my personal non-work email accounts using Apple Mail and work related ones using Entourage in MS Office 2004. In other words, Mail for the casual stuff and Entourage for the professional stuff. Reason is that I manage my professional client relationships as individual 'projects' in Entourage's Project Center (I really wish Apple would come up with something like this). It also helps when dealing with clients who use Outlook on WinDOS. This setup also helps me with GTD stuff (see http://www.davidco.com/store/catalog/GTD-and-Entourage-p-16209.php) by keeping me focused on 'work' when working...

Have you tried setting up a GTD like system using iCal? Failing that I know there is a GTD setup for OmniOutliner Pro. It's called kinkless. Looked very interesting to me.

I looked at both Kinkless and OmniOutliner some six months back. However, in January I got involved in reviewing the beta version of 'GTD for Entourage' (see the URL in my earlier posting) and now run a somewhat bastardised hybrid on my Mac. However, since posting my last comment, I revisited Daylite from Marketcircle (see: www.marketcircle.com) which I looked at some 18 months ago and I have to say that I am really impressed at how it's evolved to now include some sort of email integration (not sure with what though). I am now contemplating a quick test of that application.

I agree. I don't use Apple's Mail at all. I've tried each version, but I don't like the interface or the lack of powerful rules like those found in Entourage. Yes, Mail has some rules, but Entourage beats it. I think Apple should provide an interface for Mail like that in iTunes or iPhoto. I'd like to use Mail because of the better integration with other Apple programs (e.g. Address Book and iCal), but I can't make the switch until mail is improved. Right now I use Entourage for Address Book and iCal features.... (unfortunately...)
