setting up email

Upgrade to  the newest version of ACTs 2012 and can't get the email to work.  I'm guessing it has to do with putting in the correct information for the "smtp server" and the "incoming pop3server" in the wizard.

 

We worked many hours trying to figure this out. Please help me connect ACTS with my gmail .. what is the correct information for "smtp server" and the "incoming pop3server" ?

 

Thanks,Kristen

ACT! Internet Mail can't connect to Gmail ... if you have Outlook, you can connect to that, which can then connect to Gmail

Re: setting up email

ACT 2012 has the Gmail integration which means when you click on an email it opens Gmail on the web.  the act Email portion doesn't work because Google requires a special port address for the email and SSL capabilities which are not in the ACT Email nor will they ever be - unless that has changed.
