Shhh - FREE HELP with ACT is easy to get and I want to share three ways to find it...

  1. Act Tech support looks up everything at  There's no way anyone can know it all unless you're me. :)
  2. You can post a question at and even better you should search the 60,000 posts already there!

If I left anything out email me!
