I am currently using Act 2009 and from time to time send email blasts to my customers using the built in email template system via Outlook. I like to design my own templates using Microsoft Word. This system works just fine, except that sometimes my customers do not receive the images when they open the emails. If I send them one at a time it's fine, but when sent in a batch this is when the problem occurrs. I have been told in other forum posts that this is a problem with ACT and not Outlook and I tend to agree as when sent one at a time they arrive fine.
I've been looking for another solution to my email sending, and have looked at Swiftpage. It looks good, but I don't like the fact that you have to work and store everything on their website. It's a rather 'clunky' system, when Word handles templates so well. I would like to continue to use the built in ACT email templates via Outlook. I have been reluctant to upgrade to either 2010 or 2011 though because this is the only enhancement in which I'm interested.
I suppose my question is this. Will Act 2011 give me better email integration with Outlook? Or will I still have this same problem with images not appearing properly in a batch send?
Thanks for any help.
