Will ACT! run on Linux? What are my non-outlook options for ACT!?

Will ACT! run on Linux?  If not what are my non  windows options?

What about non microsoft desktop email programs?

Act! uses MS-SQL and MS.Net, so it must run on a Windows OS. That said, you can run Act! on a Windows server and then users can access either via Remote Desktop or (usually better) via a Web Browser like Chrome or Firefox.

 

No other desktop email client is supported. There are ways to integrate with Google Gmail

thank you. In the next few days/weeks,  I am going to be eliminating websites, emails and trying to avoid the cloud. I don't need act to interface with my emails either. I want a desktop solution. I have purchased my last windows pc.

I think the issue you'll have is that Linux isn't a platform used by many of sales/marketing. So, I can't see a decent desktop CRM running on it.

I'd guess that those who need CRM from Linux would do so via browser ... Afterall, the core use of Linux is for web serving and access
