    Hello expert Droid users who also own Macs:

    I searched the archives and current thread, did not see this issue. New to Droid 2. At work we are mainly PC (except for 4 of us), at home I am Mac (MacBookPro). My Mac travels with me for both. I use Microsoft Entourage for email. When I send any email from my Droid 2 it will send and receive just fine . . . however, when I look on my Mac computer's Microsoft Entourage under "sent items" it is not formatted correctly:

    1) The "to" and "subject" fields are blank
    2) the body of the email contains the above information but the actual written email is not in any english. For example, (sorry, I did not include the server number and a bit more at the top for fear that IT at work would get mad at me . .no I am not very computer savvy . ..please bear with me).
    I sent an email entitled "Test!" You can see that shows up in the body. I also wrote "Again, please" as the only words in the email. That also shows up. but all the other crud does as well, and long string of nonsense characters at the bottom about which I am also clueless.

    When I log into a desktop computer at work (there are stations I can use when I don't use my mac) the PC there shows all of the email perfectly--sent items show up with "to" and "subject" intact. Verizon, of course, says this is a known issue but does not say how to fix it. They say the phone is working fine so it is not their problem. . . even tho I told them that I needed to buy a phone that would work with my Mac AND our PCs at work. . . .

    So . . .Can anyone tell me how to get my "sent items" box to behave? We use it all the time at my office. It would be a bit of a hardship to have everything from my phone go unmarked in this way.

    thanks so much in advance,
