Entourage Setup for Mac

Entourage is an alternative to the Winona State University online Email system (email.winona.edu). Instead, it uses a program that connects to the WSU email server to retrieve your mail and send out emails, along with several other functions. In order to use Entourage, you will need to follow a few simple steps in order to set it up.

Please note that it may take up to 5 minutes for your account to fully sync with the server. You may not see your email and calendars until your account is fully synced.

If you still do not see any of your emails or calendar items, make sure the correct account is selected. Look for the name you gave to your account (Winona, for example) and click to expand the list. You should now see your items. If "On My Computer" is selected, you will not be able to see your items.
