Unfortunately I do not know a email service that does not require SSL.

 

For best integration performance, regularly I suggest having Office installed on the computer (32BIT) In my case I use Office 2007 with Service Pack 3 in my Act! V18 Premium database.

 

I suggest personalized assistance of a Act! Certified Consultant ACC - The consultant should consider the technical aspects like UAC User account Control - Antivirus and Firewall

The order of installation must first Office, then Act! -  to get the integration

 

If my computer is a laptop - then I do not need synchronization with outlook - only integration to create history records - because the remote database is always with me - and when I return to the office synchronize by the local network.

 

with Act! Premium can also synchronize my remote database by internet.

 

If you do not have a server because the database is only on your computer, everything is easier, in that case you do not need a remote database and server.

V16 Premium and Pro supports...  (Version installed on windows)  Microsoft Outlook 2007, 2010, and 2013 (32-bit version only) (Latest Service Packs Recommended)

 

Your outlook internet mail must use ports 995 (POP3)  and 587 (SMTP) but Internet Mail cannot be configured to use specific server ports other than the default Outgoing Server Port 25 and Incoming Server Port 110.

 

Do not forget to periodically backup your database.

 

good luck and best regards,

Thank you Juan Carlos,

 

Since my office version does not included outlook and that outlook internet does not use the right port, do you know any other internet mail provider that are using the right ports(25 and 110)?

 

Or my only alternative is to buy  outlook and is it the best software to use with act?

 

Regards,
