In Microsoft Entourage 2004 for Mac, after you connect to a Microsoft Exchange Server account, you may experience symptoms that are similar to the following:
  • Calendar events and appointments may not be available.
  • Calendar events may be missing attachments.
  • Calendar events may not be updated.
  • The Contacts folder for the Exchange account may not synchronize correctly.
In this scenario, when you try to access items that are in an e-mail folder, you may experience symptoms. For example, messages may not open, or attachments may be missing.


This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • You are using Entourage 2004 to connect to an Exchange account.
  • On a second computer, Microsoft Entourage X for Mac and Microsoft Exchange Update for Entourage X are installed.
  • The second computer is connected to the same Exchange account.


To work around this problem, quit Entourage X on the second computer.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

  • Microsoft Entourage 2004 for Mac
