    I have just configured Entourage and when I went to check mail, it gave any error and suggested that I fix the database. The MS site says you click the Entourage Icon while holding down the option key and it should give you the option to fix the database.

    When I do so it comes up and asks for a "Fix Clock Key". I'm using the new version of Office for Mac 2008 Home/Student edition. Any help would be appreciated.

    You can check the Entourage database by going into the following folder:
    ~/Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Office/
    In there, look for the app titled "Microsoft Database Utility". Before you launch it, make sure that you've quit out of all of the Microsoft Office apps (not just Entourage). You can either choose to verify it, or both verify and repair it.

    Depending on the size of your database, it'll probably take at least a couple of minutes for it to run.
