I'm using ACT 2007 Premium for Workgroups and Outlook 2003 and can't get the e-mails to attach to the History in Act any more. I can get to Outlook's Tools, Options, Act tab but the History Options button doesn't work - clicking on it does nothing. After numerous attempts, re-installs and applying the Hotfix 3, I have been able to get the text of e-mails to show up Act History. However, it is the entire e-mail I want attached as it usually contains the quotes, PO's etc. that are critical to our operations. The text also takes up too much space!
The Attach to History feature used to work fine on my previous computer. I have just changed to a new computer running Windows Vista. However, I took off all the Office 2007 programs and am using the full Office 2003 suite as I know Office 2007 is not compatible with my version of ACT.
Anyone else having/had this problem? Any suggestions?
There is also one other thing to keep in mind. Unfortunately, ACT! Premium for Workgroups 2007 is not compatible with the Vista os, only the standard version of the software was tested and is supported. This may also be part of the reason you are experiencing issues. Definitely try the suggested kb, but I wanted you to be aware of the limitations.
Hi everyone, Thanks for your input. Our in-house IT person finally figured it out. Apparentely my laptop did not "learn" the Hotfix 3 when it was installed. Now that it has, we finally got e-mails to attach to Act contact records. Cheers, Judy
Some people in my office are able to use email others not. Unfortunately I'm one of the latter.
I keep seeing comments that Act 2007 and Outlook 2007 are not compatable.
Has anyone been able to get this working?
I use Outlook 2007 and am able to attach email to contact history. I am also able to use the Act address book within Outlook. I've sync. my calendar from Act to Outlook. But for the life of me can't get the email to work. Although it works on other people within my office.
