    Entourage Driving Me CRAZY!! 98% CPU Usage! Lockups! HELP!
    Ok, I am about sick and tired of trying to open an incoming e-mail and being treated to that spinning beach ball. It now takes an average if 3 minutes before I can open an e-mail. Takes the same amount of time to send.... and all the while that little beach ball is taunting me. This HAS to be an Entourage problem. I looked in Activity Monitor and it said "Not Responding" and using 98% of the CPU. I can't use mail because I have a sub-account on the same mail server and if I try to use both I get constant duplicates in my e-mail. So I use Mail for one account, and Entourage for the other.

    PLEASE someone tell me how to fix this piece of garbage app!!

    (The rest of my PB is awesome by the way).
    1) Powerbook G4 12" 1.5 GHz, iWork, Ilife 06, Logic Pro, Office 2K4
    2) A PC with a bunch of stuff in it.

    Try rebuilding the database, hold down option when starting entourage. Also, try moving some of your mail to a seperate folder other than the in box.

    This is most certainly not normal, since my Entourage using an EXCHANGE server complete with a calendar and stuff runs quickly. Have you tried repairing disk permissions or even reinstalling Office?

    I tried rebuilding the database and then compacting it. I also changed the view from preview on the side to preview on the bottom. There was also a huge delay when messages were received. I sent an e-mail at 5:37pm last night (before trying this stuff) and it wasnt received until around midnight.

    I am using POP. Today it doesn't seem to be acting up much. I wonder if there is a problem linking to roadrunner's smtp???? Strange.

    Possible....they were doing maintenance here last week and we couldn't get mail for a while. Check the network status at the RR site.
