Ok, I've spent way too much time trying to figure this out on my own.  I need help - and a 12-step program won't cut it.  Here's the story as concisely as I can explain it:

 

I use Sage 50 (Simply Accounting) for bookkeeping.  I need to be able to email invoices from Sage.  Sage tells me I need a MAPI compatible email program.  So I created an Outlook account cuz Outlook's like the Queen of MAPI stuff.  I have sent about 9000 test emails from the accounting program and not one of 'em has ended up in my Rogers.com email account.  Don't know where the emails went cuz neither Sage nor Rogers is talking.  Can somebody please tell me how the high holy hell I get this accomplished?

I believe You need to have Outlook installed.

When You say I created an Outlook account do You mean within Outlook or do you mean outlook.com the online email service?

Wow, think you've solved the problem!!  I meant the outlook.com online email service.  So now I'm gonna go install Outlook and see what happens.  Whatever it is, it'll be a surprise to me.  It always is, unfortunately.  Thanks so much!!
