Entourage Office for Mac


- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Garrick Chow and welcome to Entourage 2008 for Mac Essential Training. Entourage 2008 is part of Microsoft Office 2008, the fantastic Mac-only version of Microsoft's powerhouse suite of productivity applications that also includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Many people think of Entourage as just a program for reading and writing email, but it's capable of so much more, and this latest version includes some great new features for managing, not only your email, but also for managing your schedule, contacts, tasks and projects. In this series of training videos, I'm gonna take you through all the essential information you need to get started using Entourage to get yourself more organized and in control of all those aspects of your daily life.

Now one quick note about exercise files for this tutorial, there are none. Unlike many other lynda.com training titles, there aren't any example files to work along with for these movies because most of the work you do in Entourage has to do with setting up your own email account and working with events and tasks that you write from scratch. So just sit back and watch these movies, or work along with your own information in Entourage as we go along. Alright, that said, let's jump right in and get started.
