Outlook doesn't support all the functionality of ACT!, so you can't move all your database and have the same use.

The best solution is BOTH - ACT! 2009 for the contact management using Outlook for email.

Normally there's no need as you can set the ACT! database as an address book in Outlook.

But, if you need to, you can use www.CompanionLink.com to do this
