ACT 2012 and Microsoft Outlook 2010 (32-bit)

ACT 2012 and Microsoft Outlook 2010 (32-bit)

I am about to upgrade from Act 2009 to Act 2012.   I am running on a Windows  7 (64-bit) PC and have Microsoft Outlook / Office 2010 (32-bit).   Before I ugprade, I want to make sure that whenever I send an email from Outlook that it will automatically update the History record in ACT for the contact with the matching email address.    I don't want any other integration / synchronization to take place (i.e. I don't want ACT messing with my Outlook calendar, Outlook task list or Outlook contact file).     Is this doable in ACT 12?

 

Thanks!

Hi Ianra64.

 

I have an installation of Windows 7 - 64bit and Office 32 bit.  Outlook works just fine.  You set the policies in ACT to make sure that nothing is managed in Outlook from ACT.  This is the way I handle it myself.  

 

Hope this help.

Yes, it does that if you setup Outlook as the email client in ACT! and attach the ACT! database as the address book ... but don't set up synchronisation.
