Windows mail

Can I use Windows Vista's email program with ACT 2009 or do I need to get Outlook?  Thank you for your help.

Windows Mail is not compatible with ACT!.  You will need to use Internet Email, Outlook (recommended), Eudora or Lotus Notes.

I set up a Windows Mail account in ACT that works with my cable email account (Optonline), but does not work with my web site email account at Network Solutions.  The Optimum account seems to be using their own version of Outlook Express.  Why won't ACT set up just as easily?

After much consternation I was able to configure ACT 2009  with Windows Mail by setting up the outgoing smtp server to my ISP and my incoming server to the Go Daddy third party email I use. I configured my outgoing "reply to" address to the Go Daddy address so my customers would not see a difference.

Re: Windows mail

That's not ACT! using Windows Mail, you have ACT! talking via Internet Mail directly to the mail servers
