I have a client who is using AOL as her email and wants to be able to
email invoices to her clients.

Simply doesn't seem to allow this, only from MS Outlook or Outlook
Express. I have searched to see if there are settings in Simply
(version 2006) for email settings but cannot find anything.


Can this be done...any help would be appreciated.


Thx!

If Simply Accounting will work with MS Outlook, use it. AOL now allows
access to your email account from an email client. MS products do not
handle it the best; you can't actually delete an InBox item from
Outlook. It will continue to show the item, with a line through the
Subject.

However, from the perspective of sending email out, it should work
fine. AOL uses IMAP protocol. There is help within AOL to get the set
up completed.

Will try to convince the client to use MS Outlook. If not will look
into AOL using IMAP protocol - much thanks for your suggestion.

I think I need to clarify. You client is already an AOL customer.
Applications that want to send out email cannot access AOL's email
through the AOL application interface.

Your client needs to set up MS Outlook, using their AOL account
information. AOL offers IMAP protocol to do this. When clicking on
the appropriate options in Simply Accounting, it will see an accessible
email accounting in MS Outlook. I do this with one of my AOL accounts.
I still use AOL to manage the email.

The set up on MS Outlook is very easy to do. Your client should have
no problems. It will definitely make it easier (and nicer) for sending
emails from Simply Accounting.
