Yesterday i was working on my mac and saw an email downloading on my entourage, it didn't make it to the mailbox as my entourage closed unexpectedly (with no warning) i clicked on my entourage and the button on the dock went in a puff of smoke (as if it was being removed). When i went into the apps and reopened entourage from there it opened as if it were brand new (complete with a welcome email from microsoft). So i have a couple of questions... Where did it go? (i checked my mail boxes online and there was no mail in either of them) Could it be a virus? (i know about macs not having virus, but it has coincided with the downloading of an email) i don't have any virus protection working on my mac at all... I backed up onto my time machine last week, but i don't know how to make use of the entourage database file. the basic instruction as if i was switching identities didn't do anything. i have run a disk verification and it says that all is running smoothly. do i need to rebuild the database? is there any simple step by step instructions to do it? (I'm a girl ) Any help anyone could give me would be most appreciated!
