Are you using the Exchange features? The 1st sync may slow things down quite
a bit especially over a slow connection, and the first sync can take a long
while if you have lots of mail, contacts or events. After that things should
speed up considerably.
FAQs for Entourage:Mac
Two likely causes:
1. You have a schedule or script running at shutdown time that is taking a
while to complete - check your schedules for any that run at shutdown, and
2. You have a firewall blocking some higher port numbers which Entourage
uses to check for other copies with the same serial number running on the
network - this was a 'known issue',and the SR1 update addresses this. It's
still possible you need to check your firewalls.
If have Norton Personal Firewall 2 installed, try turning off the stealth
mode and then testing, it should resolve the issue. The stealth mode in
version 2 interferes with the network PID checking and there is no other
workaround other than to turn off the stealth mode if that is the cause of
your issue. The incompatibility between Office X and Stealth Mode seems to
be resolved with Personal Firewall 3.
