  • I have an old system that contains my father's old Entourage account. We are planning to sell the system this time. Can I somehow backup my Entourage Mac emails?

  • Directly backing up the Entourage profile is not even near possibility. However, you can export the Entourage files to RGE format.
    As Entourage support is eventually ending, it is necessary that you switch the mail client to Apple Mail or Outlook. As for the mail back up, you will need a good converter tool that should let the emails import easily to Apple mail/Outlook mac. Otherwise, the backed up emails read, and thus, turn useless.
    I have heard about Mail Backup X. This tool can backup RGE files. 
    With Mail Backup X, you can export the RGE file to any format of your convenience.
    Take a free trial before purchasing the same, to ensure it works the way you expected.

  • Hi,

    I suggest you could check the thread discussed before

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/mac/forum/macoffice2008-macother/back-up-for-entourage-2008-mac-emails/9e6ca105-bae2-4662-939c-563d04d30a7c?db=5

    And since this is windows server backup forum, we main focus on the problem about build-in feature windows server backup (WSB) on Windows server version.

    Since Microsoft Entourage  is for Mac system. I suggest you could consult in Microsoft mac community for more suggestion.

    Thanks for your support and understanding.

    Best Regards,

    Mary

    For the time being, I am using Mail Backup X. A bit confused if I shall keep my entourage files in here or shall move them to Outlook through conversion. The tool recommended by Steven seems good enough. As he said, it has backed up my entourage files and I can access them from the Viewer Window.
    I think that solves my issue for now.
    Thanks <g class="gr_ gr_39 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Punctuation only-ins replaceWithoutSep" data-gr-id="39" id="39">Steven</g>.
