Anyone know of a way to sync Entourage with .mac? I need to match my G5 desktop with my G4 laptop.

G5, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

    Specifically what do you want to sync? Address Book, Calendar?

    You've stumbled into a Mac and Windows compatibility forum, not an Office for Mac forum. I suggest you post over in this Microsoft newsgroup dedicated to Entourage <http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.mac.office.entourage>.

    Good luck!

    iCal is what I'm trying to sync. The Address book already syncs fine. It's just the ical I need to sync between my G5 desktop and my G4 laptop via .mac.

    Thanks, Bill. I'm trying over there, too.

    It's amazing how often Mac people are able to bust a Windows/Mac compatibility problems. I like it when I'm able to solve a Windows problem for one of my PC users. This time however, I'm looking to both platforms to see if anyone has a suggestion.

    Do you have Sync Services turned on in the Entourage preferences, and set to sync w/iCal?

    Yep, got the preferences on ... but that doesn't seem to actually sync the two databases.

    Hi Ken!

    I understand your thinking but the folks in the Entourage forum I directed you to are definitely Mac people. Just because the forum name includes "Microsoft" that doesn't necessarily mean you're talking to Windows folks. Those forums are just like this one, populated by end-users, not employees. And they're dedicated to discussing the software that you're asking about.

    Good luck!

    The answer is:

    For the first time in my 19 years of Mac use, there is a Microsoft product I really like better than anything Apple has. As I said, this is a first ...

    I like the way Entourage links it's calendar and projects into a unified package. iCal doesn't have a projects facet that can be tied together like Entourage has.

    Unfortunately, since I have to sync between my G5 Desktop and my G4 laptop using .Mac, I can't use this superior program and have to stay with iCal.

    Hopefully, I'll be able to find some software that will incorporate the Entourage project sub-program and will allow for syncing.
