This has been an issue since ACT! 2005...
ACT! performance suffers heavily when the attachments folder exceeds 10K files (mainly Windows issues reading the FAT). As it's the number of dir items, not the total size, even shortcuts impact this.
Can you look at allowing subfolders - either automated to create a new sub every X-number of files or (better) folders based on a user selectable field (like ID Status or the contact when it's saved).
If some ability to manually select the folder, this would also have the security benefits of being able to secure a folder by Windows/Domain ACL and also select folders to be excluded from Universal Search - while still supporting sync/web unlike shortcuts (which are the only way now to do this) ... currently, Universal Search is a real security flaw

THIS IS SOOOO NEEDED!!!!! If you have 100's of contacts and you have gathered either documents or they have sent you information in a file and you can't remember who it was but you remember the content of the document, how would you find this info? You should be able to do a boolean search on documents. Some companies you may have up to 30 contacts w/ attachments form them so it would so much more productive to be able to do a search w/ some key words and boom, there is your list and be able to read it on right hand side or something as you scroll through.
Hope others can use this feature!
I like the way that an email is visible to the right of the screen whenever you click on a 'email sent' history item. I also like to save emails that have attachments so I've checked that option in the email set up.
The problem is that, at least in my experience, whenever you click on a 'email sent' history item that has been saved attachments and all, the text of the email no longer appears to the right, just the subject line appears. It would be nice if there was a way to save all the attachments but ALSO have the body of the email appear to the right of the histories.
