Changing Email Clients

I am upgrading to ACT 2009 from 2005.  We currently use the ACT email client.  Once I upgrade I would like to use Outlook as our client.  Is there a way to move the saved emails (sent, custom folders, etc.) from the ACT email client into Outlook?

Re: Changing Email Clients

Yes, you can move emails from ACT! to Outlook


- In ACT, go to Tools/Preferences/Email/Email System Setup

- In the email setup wizard, choose both your original email system and Outlook...complete the wizard

- Open ACT! Email and you should have mailboxes for both your original account and Outlook

- Move the messages from one mailbox to another by dragging and dropping them

Make sure you have Outlook set to use the ACT! Email client to do this.


Then, when you're done, you might go back and change it to use Outlook as it's usually a better option
