Database specific Options Determined by the Database Administrator

How do you set database specific options determined by the database administrator? Specifically in reference to "allow e-mail messages to be attached to this database" and "allow history creation for e-mails sent from a user of this database to another user".

 

The How To article https://customers.sagenorthamerica.com/irj/go/km/docs/sageKM/ACT!%20by%20Sage/Ungated%20Customers/ac... speaks about this, but never gives instruction on how to do it and I am unable to find any documentation pertaining to it.

For number 4 in Travis's instructions, you may need to slide the tabs across with the arrow on the right to see the Admin tab

I only see one extra tab - ACT email editor - and it does not have the options talked about it the article. Are there any dependencies that I need to be aware of for me to be able to access the Admin tab (i.e. sql server running, email set up within ACT)?

Ah - the options listed under 'Database Specific Options Determined by the Administrator' are new, available only in ACT! 2011.  Only the options listed under 'User Specific Options Determined by Each Database User' will be available in ACT! 2010.
