I never heared Entourage before, but wikipedia tells me:
"The last version was Entourage: Mac 2008, part of Microsoft Office
2008 for Mac, released on January 15, 2008. Entourage was replaced by
Outlook for Macintosh"

If you use unsupported, very old software don't expect it to work.

That said: It's just a guess, but afaik the bettercrypto
recommendations disable triple-des (3DES) cipher suites. Old Windows
versions before AES-support came in can be supported by adding 3DES.
And it's not really a problem. 3DES is slow and old, but it is robust,
no known serious security issues.
