"sudo periodic weekly"

just wiped out my last week of email. I'm using MS Entourage. Apparently Entourage is temporarily caching files in a way that they will be deleted by this command.

    I performed this command. I use MS Entourage. I have Panther. I did not, however, encounter this problem. I am doubtful of a connection between this command and Entourage. Entourage, as all MS Office Programs, saves all files under the Identities file in your User folder. No special caching for recent e-mail.

    Hi !

    I am sorry to hear that you have been experiencing issues !

    However, this Mac OS X command only takes care of removing some system-specific cache files and not any third-party ones...

    Therefore, I do not see how it could affect your Entourage™ database in any way...

    You may want to make sure that another third-party application did not delete some needed files, creating issues.
