ACT vs Outlook 2007

Hi Guys

I have been using ACT as a contact management system and outlook as a mail system + tasks and calendar, now i was planning to import all my contact information from act to outlook so i can handle everything in one place

what are the pros and cons between ACT and Outlook?
Which one should be beetter and why?
Maybe i am not using them 100% of their capacity

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
