Select Check for Updates at Startup if you would like Account Ability to automatically check for updates at program startup (not available on demonstration systems).
The E-Mail Delivery Interface controls how Account Ability delivers email to its technical support and outsourcing (EFILE, TIN Matching, Print and Mail) departments. Two interfaces are available - MAPI Mail (Messaging Application Programming Interface) and WEB Mail (Web-based email or Webmail). MAPI clients generally use Microsoft Outlook; WEB Mail (the default) is browser based and only requires an internet connection. If you are not sure of which interface to use, WEB Mail is the better choice.
