    My wife uses Entourage on her work computer and isn't too high on it, but doesn't like Mail, either, so she uses iCal and Gmail's web mail on her home computer.

    I personally have never used Entourage and think that Mail and iCal are just fine. Not perfect by any means, but they do what I need them to.

    I use Entourage and Thunderbird. Entourage because the Calendar works Ok with the Exchange calendar at work -- theoretically, iCal does too, but, I could never get it to work the way I want.

    So, Entourage is for use with Exchange. I use Thunderbird to store all my archived mail. Thunderbird doesn't mind 100 folders with 10K messages in them. Entourage isn't built for that. I save all my old mail, so I need something that can handle 25 years worth.

    Entourage is dreadful. I was forced to use it at my last office because they couldn't be bothered to upgrade from Exchange Server 2003 to 2007/2010. Am no longer forced to touch it thankfully!!

    I use Entourage only before Mail sucks in terms of exchange support; I like Outlook and am looking forward to that.

    @work.. we were a Lotus Notes house (30,000+ users) and we're in the process of switching to Exchange. I was one of the first 100 to move to Exchange and now use Entourage as my daily email/calendaring/etc app. I quite like it.

    @personal.. I've always used Mail since it was introduced. It replaced Eudora as my mail app of choice.

    Mail and iCal for me. I can't stand Entourage, but I'm willing to see what Outlook brings to the table.
