Came across a site on another list that will answer your question. http://www.fuckmicrosoft.com/content/ms-hidden-files.shtml Here you will find that MS are indeed cacheing every email you have ever had, even after delete. Don't know about a Mac but you need to go into DOS in Windows to clear them from the hard drive. You can't get at them from within windows. They're in a hiden, hiden folder. Norton Utilities also enables you to delete them apparently I'm not sure how though. hth Darren Yates dn at dittodesign.co.uk http://dittodesign.co.uk ----- Original Message ----- From: "Cayley Vos" <cvos at netpaths.net> To: "evolt" <thelist at lists.evolt.org> Sent: Thursday, April 11, 2002 12:37 PM Subject: [thelist] MS entourage - scared > Is anyone familiar with the behavior of MS entourage for mac?
