It's similar to Outlook for Windows. It's different than Outlook for Mac
because it can access regular POP and IMAP e-mail accounts. It's different
than Eudora because it has calendar, tasks, and notes, and can connect to
the Exchange Server.
That's an optional service from Apple, and with it you get an iDisk, web
space, e-mail account, etc. You can learn about it in detail here:
Yes, Entourage can retrieve mail from Exchange and POP accounts.
Entourage has support for POP and IMAP accounts. However, Entourage does
not have some of the advanced Exchange features. You can learn some more
If you are using an Exchange Server version older than 2000, you can only
access mail, and cannot take advantage of the new Exchange functionality in
I doubt it. A lot of news servers don't allow you to access them outside
the network. Others allow you to with authentication. Contact Comcast to
see if they allow it or not.
I think the best thing for you to do would be to buy a copy of Entourage X
for both computers, and update the work computer to OS X. Entourage X works
with Exchange Server 2000 and up. That way, your calendar entries and
contacts would be saved to the Exchange Server, and you'd see the same data
at home and at work. And you'd be able to access both your Comcast mail and
Exchange mail at home and at work.
Entourage includes a Palm conduit you can use. There's also a 3rd party
solution for synchronizing with Sony Ericsson phones.
The only thing that wouldn't synchronize would be your Safari bookmarks.
For that, you'd need to use iSync with a .Mac account, which might be
somewhat pricey if you're only going to use it to transfer bookmarks.
