Do all emails have to be attached ?

I do not want all emails attached to the contact in ACT.  How do I control that function?

No they don't.


Assuming you are using Outlook..


select the contact you want to write an email to, then create the email (i.e. click their address or write/e-mail).


In the email composing view in outlook look for Add-Ins on the top bar of the composition screen, and select that.  You'll see two boxes related to attaching the email to Act.  The rightmost box has a drop down menu for that specific e-mail message.


You'll want to select a default action (such as not attaching) and then override as needed while composing. 


If I am doing a mass e-mail i usually just save the message title and don;t save any part of the message body as it is usually from a form letter I don;t need to keep details on.  I have this option presneted to me when creating the bulk email message.
