    Was told to rebuild Entourage database--tried but not enough disk space. Cleared away as much stuff elsewhere as I could, but still not enough. Wondering how I can delete old emails (I save way too many) from Entourage files without Entourage running. Might get me the space I need. Thanks lots for help. RT

    You can't delete anything from the Entourage database without having it open. If you weren't having database troubles, I'd tell you to compact the database via the Database Utility, but that's probably not safe if you need to rebuild your database.

    Can you move some stuff off of your hard drive just for a little while? Then you can rebuild your database, delete the old one, and then move everything back when you're done.
