Since I deal with quite a few large attachments, My habit is to remove the attachments when the e-mails are moved from my inbox to the individual project folders. Since Entourage then tagged the e-mail with the name of the removed attachment, it seemed like a good way to keep my database size down. However, in testing some archived files, I noticed that all of the history information (attachments, replied, forwarded, etc...) was lost on the export. I have since tried to export and then re-import both .rge and mbox files with the same result. Is there a work around for this, or am I just up a creek? Also, is it possible to have more than one database file open in entourage without it wanting to merge them into a single data base?
