Final Word on AOL or Gmail in Act Pro?

I've been trying to hook up AOL and Gmail in ACT! Pro with no success. I've read several articles on the community but none have given me a definitive solution. What is the final word on whether you can hook up AOL and/or Gmail in 2012 ACT! Pro?

I haven't seen any link to AOL

ACT! 2012 can record history from Gmail, but can't send email (or merges).

There is an add-on that allows sending via Gmail:

Unbelievable! Sage advertises intergration with Gmail and Gapps and cannot provide the ability to send from Act through Gmail. "Lame" is the polite way to describe this deceptive advertising.

No argument from me on that ... same with all the "enhancements" added in the past 3-4 years

Hello JIm,
While the integration with Gmail is not at the same level as it is with Outlook, there is a way you can generate a Gmail message in ACT! and then have it record in history:

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

So I learned earlier today from another user. However, how come Sage tech support is so ignorant of this???

You still can't do things like mail merge or use templates via Gmail.

It really shouldn't be that hard to add the ability to select ports and SSL in the ACT! email ... users have been begging for this for years
