Well, just installing the Act software has completely disabled the Email Redirector.
A couple of points: I realize I will need to use Companion Link to sync contacts, calendar, etc. with Act, but you still need Redirector for email. I have uninstalled Act, re-installed the Desktop, and the Redirector still doesn't work. If an email is sent to me, it goes into "Pending Messages" and never gets past it. If I send a message from the BB, it changes the date and time of last sent message, but it never goes through. If Redirector is off and an email is sent either way, a temporary RIM network email shows up in my Outlook inbox, then stays there (unless I turn Redirector back on, then it disappears).
This has occurred on 3 computers now. Before Act installed, all works fine. After Act installed (whether subsequently uninstalled or not), Redirector will not work. I have a feeling Act is altering an Outlook setting or system file, but have no basis for that. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Check ACT Preferences - Email and check the settings. I believe that you can uncheck all email options, so that ACT does not interface with your email. This might fix the problem.
