Yes, you can create an Outlook rule to automatically record incoming emails. The update is still in final internal testing and will be released soon.

Let me give you a scenario and see if there is anything that can be done.
I get emails at work from AN individual from a Company we work with regarding another individual contact. Both individuals are "CONTACTS" in Act 11.0.
When I receive an email, I want an email to go into one contact history and one to go to the other contact history.
It works with one contact, but the other contact does not get the history. Sometimes there's more than 2 contacts involved too!
Hey, I know I could create a group, but how can a GROUP be created with having to manually create the group? it's such a waste of time doing that when 100 of them have to be done a day.
All/Both contacts need the history!

OK, I knew that, but how could one reconcile the fact that if the email is to have ACTION performed on it FOR the OTHER contact, looking at the OTHER contact tells me nothing about what I should be doing for that OTHER contact. The history should be FOR that other contact also.
For example, a supplier emails me about ANOTHER contact and the action is really for the other contact, I can't create a rule that somehow makes sure both contacts have the same info?
I know what your answer is, but there's got to be another way. It would take an outside macro program to do this I suppose, but that kind doesn't make sense.
