My transition to Mac is almost complete, I traded my IBM ThinkPad for a MacBook Pro. One issue that I have not resolved as of yet is the Outlook thing. I am a salve to MS Outlook and though some people call it a bloated virus magnet I never had a problem with it and I use live and die by it. Right now I am using Entourage and I hate it I have tried http://www.zimbra.com/community/ http://chandler.osafoundation.org/ http://www-306.ibm.com/software/lotus/ http://www.eudora.com/ I am not a fan of the Macs Ical, Mail and address book. It is annoying that Macs in all their glory cannot have an intergraded PIM. I worked for years as a suit and tie guy in the corporate world and PCs ruled, now I took a job in education and it is a total driftnet environment. I am liking the more laid back vibe and not wearing a suit and tie ever day kicks ass, but I am trying to bring a bit of the corporate structure in to a world of academia and I feel a PIM is paramount in that. If any one has any suggestions for an email/pim application for Mac I would be forever in your debt.
