    Hoping to reduce the size of the Entourage Address Book, and have improved spam filters, we upgraded to Jaguar, then bought M$ Office X, upgrading from M$ Office 2001. We love the auto filing script capacity after sending, and use it well with calendars, tasks, notes, links to word, seeing the whole thread in the Address Book.

    Does anyone have solution to reducing Entourage's Address Book? I guess you guys have debated this before. We can't delete old multiple addresses from the AB. When we delete things the database is still as big as ever.
    And now it's taking 10 seconds to select fonts when in HTML view. What is it with this pigsy package?

    Also is there a "family" version of M$ Office X for us to all use - there's 3 of us here. Can't find it online.

    Any info or advice very welcome.

    this is a problem with all of the apps made by microsoft...the easy way to fix this problem is to not use it...but you seem to like the features...

    i could be wrong, but it looks like you have 2 choices...
    1)deal with it--get a little patience
    2)don't use MS apps at all...use mail, address book, iCal.....
