ACT! was unable to connect to Outlook



Act! Pro Version, Update 4

Outlook 2013

Windows 10 Pro

Local / private data


I THINK I've set up my options correctly in tools/preferences. However, when I hover over an email address in an ACT record it shows as a link, but if I click on it I get the dreaded "Object not set to an instance of an object" message. Then it all freezes for 20/30 seconds. When it comes back to life the email address is not a link, but is editable. If I click elsewhere then return, it is a link again - but still  it doesn't work.


Really need my email integration to work


Is there a fix please??
