I've had the problem with smtp port 25 that others have. In investigating this problem I learned that port 25 is "Open" and used extensively by spammers.
Act needs to open use of other ports. Most email services don't use port 25 any longer due to the spam situation. How hard would it be for act to enable more port selection? Not very I think.
Same problem here. I just purchased the latest and greatest version of Act! (v20), and see that it STILL has this issue, after more than 15 years of using Act! and finding the e-mail subsystem unusable.
Outlook is NOT an option for me. Other e-mail programs, Thunderbird, Lotus Notes, etc... and I'm willing to look into other (preferably Open Source) options as well, but Outlook is NOT an option for me.
Disappointed that an application that is constantly being updated doesn't recognize that their e-mail choices are a limiting factor to wider adoption and usage.
