Running OSX 10.6.8, Entourage2008
When I try to launch the following message appears: "The Rules file appears corrupt. Rules cannot be used."
What I did and nothing worked
1. Trashed the "Rules folder", still got same message
2. Tried to copy "Main Identity" folder. Found three or four folders with the same label. Duplicated all:~) Opened one and it was ok but it was mail prior to 2011.
3. Held down option key and Entourage and one folder?appeared. Ran verification and it was corrupted. Rebuilt it but still got the same message and Entourage would not open.
There are about 3000 emails in Entourage. I have a Seagate hard-drive with time-machine running but do not knowhow to use it. However I think that the emails are still their, duplicated many times.
I am a senior citizen, and not very good with the computer and would really appreciate some help.
