Entourage is the central point of my Mac world in the sense that it serves as a hub from where information travels. Entourage has several features that are also available in Outlook such as Inbox Management, calendar and a few more but still it could not be able to replace Outlook. Here, I am sharing my experience with Entourage. My journey with Entourage was good but I had to switch to Outlook due to a few disappointing features.

This is what I like most in Entourage:
·      Mails categorization is one of the most decent features.
·      Customize views of Entourage really makes it “An easy-to-use” mailing platform and helps in saving time as well.
·      Spotlight integration helps in better searching experience.
·      With Entourage, it is too easy to handle multiple mail accounts.

Most annoying things about Entourage:
·      Entourage is having a big issue in Synchronization. It does not work well with tasks, categories, emails and notes synchronization.
·      Another big drawback of this method is that you cannot attach files to it later on, and you cannot modify the text any longer, so if you need to make additional changes, you will have to open the Word document again and repeat the “Send to” procedure after you’re done.
·      Entourage does not support OBD protocol that allows edit email using external editor.
·      Entourage does not support HTML.
·      There is no inbuilt archiving feature available in Entourage.

Though Entourage is not really bad but yes it is not even closer to best and this reason forced me to switch to any other better option. At that point of time, I needed a very advanced emailing platform which can make my professional life easier so I decided to migrate to Outlook.

After carrying out a lot of Google search I found a tool that can help in performing Entourage to Outlook migration. Name of that decent utility is “Stellar MBOX to PST Converter”. I used that tool to perform MBOX to PST conversion so that I would be able to view my years of Entourage data in Outlook. That tool is having too simple user interface that even a non technical person can work on that software and the most important thing about that tool is “ It is too secure to perform conversion of crucial information”.
