Hi

Can anyone help on the above error. i have recently bought a new computer with office 365 and installed latest version of ACT but  do not want sync with ACT address book and have not added it to outlook .however i get the error message every time I send a message from outlook which is a nuisance. Have tried various solutions with no success. At this stage i do not want to integrate ACT address with Outlook

Thanks

You can disable the integration between Act! and Outlook by going to Tools > Preferences > Email and Outlook Sync > Email System Setup and removing Outlook as your mail system.

Thanks for the response. Sadly i did that fix already and both outlook and internet mail are unchecked in the boxes under preferences but i still get the error message every time i send a message.

What is the exact error message you're seeing pop up?

You can remove the Act Address books from outlook manually by going to File > Account Settings > Address Books > Highlight the Act! Address book and hit remove.

"unable to preform the requested action. there are no act address books set up at this time"is the exact message in a pop up box. I have removed the Act address book already. Weird?

Do you use other features of Outlook Integration (such as calendar sync)?

If not, you could simply disable the add-in in File > Options > Add-Ins

Alternatively, you could add the demo database as an address book. This won't sync with your database, but will prevent any errors showing up.
