You can find AppleScripts at the following locations. (Most scripts are free.)

Report Problems with Scripts

If you are having problems with a downloaded script (rendering the script inoperable or a constant error message on launch, for example), please contact the script's author directly for assistance and follow-up. Most script authors provide a link for e-mail contact; otherwise, most scripts found on macscripter.net have a link for the author's e-mail and website. Be considerate! Authors donate their scripts for free and do not always have time to offer free support.

Finding the Entourage/Outlook Script Folder

The Script Menu Items folder is located in the Microsoft User Data Folder.

Outlook 2011: ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Outlook Script Menu Items

Entourage X, 2004 & 2008: ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Entourage Script Menu Items
