Just upgraded entourage from 10.1.4 to 10.1.8 and in the process lost all my emails and adresses. Does anyone know what to do to find my lost emails and contacts?

I suspect that you have lost your Entourage preferences, normally in your home folder's Library/Preferences/Microsoft folder. Do you have a recent backup of your Library folder?

More directly, does anyone know where Entourage actually stores its mailboxes? I have hunted around but can't find it easily.

cradom, excellent - thanks. marlon69, can you check to see if those files stil exist? That is where your emails will be, if the files haven't been wiped out somehow, which I rather doubt.

M$ is the only one who knows. And, they're not tellin' a buncha Mac users how to get their stuff back.


PS ... I know it's not funny but everytime M$ is involved with something it seems to go to cause major problems.
