IMA Files

Hello...

 

I am upgrading my database FROM Act! 2013 PRO    to Act! Premium V19...

 

I was using Act! E-Mail as my mail client - but now I want to install everything from Windows and Office 2010 32Bit...

 

I already MOVE the mails FROM Act! E-Mail to Outlook with this article... http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/26350

 

________________________________

 

How can I open the IMA files if in my new installation -  I will not use Act! E-Mail  - but Outllok?

 

Should I reconfigure mail accounts with Act! E-Mail and with Outlook too? ( I really do not want to receive the same mail on both platforms )

 

What alternatives do I have?

 

Thanks

Re: IMA Files

Yes, that rings a bell.  Change the extension from ima to doc and it can be opened in Microsoft Word.

Re: IMA Files

With IMA, are you referring to the program that enables users to create disk images from floppy disks, extract files from image files, create empty images and so forth?

Renaming IMA to DOC won't work...

The file type that Outlook would use is .msg, renaming a file to that should allow you to view it ( I am unsure if there could be formatting issues)

If you have quite a lot to change there maybe a converter available on http://www.actaddons.com

Re: IMA Files

Does it error when opening or not format correctly?

It may require a converter/addon to be able to carry this out if renaming does not work.
