Entourage: How to send/receive e-mails

Entourage updates/syncs your email folders and your calendar every time you Log-In.
While it is doing this update, you are able to open and read email, send/reply/forward emails,
check your calendar - remember, not everything will be current' until the update is finished.

Entourage is also configured to automatically check for New Incoming Email every 10 minutes
once you have logged in. If you would like to check more frequently than every 10 minutes,
you can do it manually OR you can edit the existing Send & Receive schedule to check
automatically on a more frequent basis.
