So now that I’ve got OSX 10.2 on my Mac at work, I needed to read my email from both computers. I have Outlook on my Win 2000 machine and I decided I was smart enough to configure Entourage (the OSX-native Micro$oft email program) all by myself.
Boy was I wrong.
In my haste and hubris, I forgot to leave my emails on the server. Entourage, being the helpful app it is, downloaded my entire inbox, thus wiping out all my mail from the view of my PC’s Outlook. With no chance to put it back. Ever.
My webmail is hosed, too, but I changed the setting and any subsequent, new emails will be OK. But 1847 messages are now tied to my Mac. Damn!
