Because Act! Internet Mail requires ports 25 and 110, it is not possible to directly link Act! and Gmail. We generally recommend setting up Outlook to access Gmail and then integrate Act! and Outlook.
For use of a port redirector, review this post: Internet Mail

Hello, As a former ACT! 6.0 User...who went years using my company's intranet database instead, I'm now Day Two into my Sage ACT! Pro 2013 30-Day Trial. I've integrated my Gmail, but cannot seem to find a way to send/receive Gmail through ACT! 2013 and do not own Outlook on my Windows 8, as it was not included via my Microsoft Home & Student 2013 package, nor do I have any desire to purchase Outlook...which ACT! Pro seems to be pushing, which is a disappointment, if so.
If I'm missing something here, please post the necessary steps for me to fully utilize Gmail via ACT! Pro (without the involvement of Outlook) for me below. Windows 8 came pre-packaged with a "Mail" program which works wonderfully with Gmail...so I would assume ACT! Pro 2013 would naturally be compatible in this day and age as well. Thanks.

If it helps we have provided a free add-on that allows you to launch a Gmail Create Message window direct from ACT!
Go to www.freeactaddons.com and download it. As you are installing with ACT! 2013, be sure to check after download that the file has not been blocked - follow the instruction highlighted in red on our website.

Is this the free-add on which you are referring to, (which allows me to launch a Gmail Create Message window directly from ACT!)?
Xact Software's newest addon: Gmail button for ACT! is released. Download your copy from our Addons section.
If so, would there be any need to then also purchase Microsoft Outlook 2013, which I'd otherwise prefer not to purchase or even use? I'm just hoping to be able to click on a contact's e-mail address, within ACT!, and have it automatically open a Gmail Create Message window from there, w/o any extra steps.

The Gmail button installs adjacent to the ACT! default email field in ACT! allowing you to load the email address directly to the Gmail Create Message window by pushing the Gmail button. So it is the next best thing to clicking on the email address. You do not need Outlook.

I'm an ACT newbie and I'd like to be able to send an email to a group of ACT contacts. Can I do this with your gmail add-on button? I tried to set up an Internet Mail account in ACT Premium 2012, but even though my SMTP server is port 25 and the POP3 server is port 110, the wizard always says "cannot connect to server" for both SMTP and POP. Any ideas would be appreciated.
