Not sure about your last post...

If your Mac's email is accessing the mail server, then the account is in use. If your cell email is accessing the mail server then the account is in use. Each device continually/frequently/sometimes checks with your email server to ask if there is any new mail. It sounds to me as though the two devices - Mac and cell - are conflicting with one another.

Entourage cannot do anything, it says the accounts are in use...

On your cell, search Menu/Accounts-Sync/... try syncing accounts, or alternately, don't sync accounts. Or check the settings in the cell email settings. Does it have a switch to check email or don't check email. If so, then turn off the 'check email'. The sync function will sync the cell with the Mac so you see the same emails on both devices. Or should. Or might. It's a learning curve.

Have you tried having your emails pushed to the phone rather than having the phone go looking for them?
