Outlook issues

[ Edited ]

Outlook is an unreliable program [Edit: inappropriate content removed].  WHY OH WHY don't the makers of Act! give me an IMAP client right within Act!?  Why can't I use use the Act! address book with OTHER email clients?

 

I can't use the Act! email feature as it is POP only.  I currently use Outlook because I have multiple accounta and I need IMAP, but Outlook is unreliable  [Edit: inappropriate content removed]

What does everyone else here do for email?

90% of who, Act! users?  That's because Act! integrates with nothing else.  Give us decent built-in email support (read: IMAP support) and I would bet most Act! users would have no need for Outlook.

I couldn't find figures specific to IMAP. But globally, Outlook till seems most popular (at 32%) according to:

You might post a request for this feature to be considered for a future version here -

Input from this web page goes directly into a database that management has direct access to read, and which they also track and gather statistics on. It also allows other users to vote on these so Sage can get an idea of the demand

Thanks for the info.

 

I wonder if Outlook is the most popular because people like spending $100 on bloated, unreliable software, or if it is because Outlook is seemingly the only email client other software makers know of.

 

Thanks again for the links.

Most likely because it's included in MS Office... and most people have that.
