Do you mean recording history?
Act! should record the history when it sends to Outlook. Make sure you have v16.2 or 16.3

I haven't tried this in a while (since Gmail was a normal POP3/SMTP server).

If it's not working, let me know. There's an alternate way to bring history from Gmail to Act!

@Mike Lazarus I am going to switch from yahoo mail to another service. This is for personal use. I will have to do a lot of tracking of email interactions with quite a few contacts. I will need full use of the Email Tracking Feature.

What email service do you recommend that can be used with Outlook 2013 so that I can use all of the email tracking features?

@Mike Lazarus Yes, I mean history. I also need to use Act’s Synchronization features (contacts, etc.) with Outlook.

I don't think the email server should matter.

Why do you need to sync contacts? I tend to find it's not that reliable and the Act! database shows as an address book in Outlook, so most users don't need it

I have very little experience with Act! 2011 and Outlook. I’ll just maintain the contacts in the Act! database.
