    nothing happens. if i've got entourage open or not, nothing happens. a little movement goes on in the dock like something is opening but nothing does.

    any ideas?

    why use an MS product when OSX's mail is perfectly suitable?

    well, If im not mistaken, if it isn't your default mail program it will ask you everytime you start if if you want to make it your default. I could be wrong.

    I don't have my mac here with me or I would walk you through it.

    1) Open your System Preferences.
    2) Select the Email Tab in the Internet Pane.
    3) Click on the “Default Email Reader” popup and select the “Select…” menu item.
    4) Navigate to Entourage. By default it is located in Applications/Microsoft Office folder
    5) Click on the Select button for Entourage to set Entourage as your default mailer.

    this is for Jaguar.

    The preference to set the default email application in Panther is no longer in System Preferences. Apple now requires you to make this setting in Safari or Mail preferences. However, there are freeware applications you can use to set preferences:
