I am setting up ACT! 2000 to use with Internet mail. In the Email Setup Wizard I have entered the following:
Username: My Yahoo username
Outgoing SMTP server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
incoming Pop 3 server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
Real name: My name
Reply to address: My yahoo mail address
Connect to the Internet using: Direct network connection (only option form pull-down menu)
I have tested the connection and receive confirmation of successful communication with plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com server
I have succesfully retrieved emails from Yahoo but have the following issues:
1. Attachments are not appearing in my inbox. Messages are tagged with the paperclip attachment icon and during download they appear to be downloading attachments but I cannot find the files anywhere. Here are the file locations I have specified in setup:
Preferences/General/Default Locations/File type: Email . . . c:\program files\act\Email
Preferences/General/Default Locations/File type: Internet Mail . . . c:\program files\act\mail\internet
Preferences/Email/Folder/Messages you have attached are stored in: c:\program files\act\Email
2. I am unable to send email with or without attachments and receive the error message: "Cannot perform this function: General error."
3. With some messages in my inbox I receive the following error message: "The message is too large to be displayed. The size has been truncated to fir in the display area." Can I change a setting somewhere in ACT! to address this?
