Hi I'm using Act 6.03 on a MacBook with VMWare / Windows XP Pro.
I don't have MS Office installed so wondering if Act6 will work with Thunderbird for emails?
I have the excellent Mergemaster Pro from GL Computing for sending bulk emails but it's a bit of a long process for one off emails - from my memory I had a few problems with Outlook and Act. I haven't used Act for a couple of years having gone off on a Mac adventure...sigh...Coming back to Act does make you realise how good it is - and how valuable it is for business!
Same question about the Word Processor:
At the moment I'm using the Act Word Processor, and I guess it's not possible to use the Open Office version with Act?
Am I right in thinking that if I try and install MS Office now I will have problems as better to install Office first and then Act?

The ACT! program doesn't work with Open Office. The most recent version of MS Office that will work with ACT! 6 is Office 2003 and yes Office needs to be installed first so the ACT! install can make the necessary registry links.
