Using Microsoft Entourage

If you are new to using Entourage please see our web page outlining various usage instructions for Microsoft Entourage.

If you wish to use the calendar sharing facility please refer to our web pages outlining the various calendar sharing options.

Email Quota

To help prevent your Exchange quota filling up IS Services recommend you regularly save large attachments to your local computer and delete large email messages.

Entourage Profiles

Where the same member of staff already uses Entourage 2008 to check their personal email and needs to check a non-personal email account they may add a second email account to the existing profile, so that both may be checked at the same time, or they can add a second profile. Both approaches are outlined on our web page outlining how to configure Entourage profiles.
