I've got Reckon Accounts running on Server 2012r2 in Terminal Services.
I've just found that the Export to Excel option, and emails don't work, since Outlook and Excel are not installed.

Which version of Outlook and Excel should I put on?

My experience with MYOB, has been that accounting software can be very picky about talking to other applications.

Hello Jarryd,

The best way to get Excel and Outlook is to buy a subscription to Microsoft Office 365. It only costs $129.00 a year and that gives you up to 5 licenses for the programs. Bear in mind that many email providers are no longer supporting pop and stp email services, but instead only supporting html emails due to the number of viruses doing the rounds.

Windows 10 has a Mail App which allows you to open a number of email providers like Yahoo, GMail and Outlook (HotMail/Live alternative).
