Act! 2011 Sending Email when a field has changed

A client would like to have email sent when a field changes in ACT2011. IE, check this box and bam!, email is ready to be sent! This can even be scheduled to run if necessary.

To me this seems like a simple task, but for the life of me I cannot find anything in ACT2011. In 2010, they had the ability to do this, but it seems removed in 2011. The client upgraded to 2011 because 2010 will not integrate with Outlook 2010.

I can do this through SQL with a trigger, but the sa password is only available by purchase.

Basically, what I am asking is has anyone here been able to get ACT to send email based on a field changing? If so, how? If not, do any of you have any recommendation for a add on that will do this?

Thanks in advance

Alright. It appears that this can be done with SAM by crmaddons.com. After further research that sounds to be the best resolution. Odd that something so easy to do with a database would be unavailble in ACT.

Smart tasks do not work. Looked into that a while ago.

You can use field triggers (Tools -> Define Fields -> Edit Field -> Click Next until you get to the field triggers page).
However this will just launch as specific application (Maybe a file), was this set before to run a script?

Was there no add-ins installed before that did this for you?

No. Act 2010 had a mailto option for the triggers, but it does not integrate with outlook 2010

Basically, no one offered me anything more than what I had already looked into. I did further research elsewhere and found an addon that would do it.
