Entourage & Snow Leopard

by AMCarter3 / September 5, 2009 5:07 PM PDT

I'm hearing about severe compatibility problems between Entourage and Snow Leopard. I haven't upgraded to Snow Leopard yet and definitely won't until Entourage, Word, Excel & PowerPoint work with it. Anyone having difficulties?

Depends on version

I have both 2004 and 2008 - no problems whatsoever. However, the 2004 PowerPoint does not launch under 10.6 and one needs to reinstall Office. But you can leave all Entourage identity files (even Office identity) intact. If you want to get Office 2008, be aware that the home and student edition does not have Entourage Exchange server support if you are to use it. Only the more expensive versions do. But they may be much cheaper on E-bay (this is how I got mine).

After installing SN, Entourage worked except that it would not send messages. It could receive. No matter what I did to fix it, it would not send. Tried trashing it and installing new Entourage - it wouldn't even start. So, I uninstalled Office and re-installed the entire thing. Only then did Entourage work.

did you check the Stickies in the OS X forum which has pointers as to why email in SL needs changes to the account configuration?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
