X1 will not accept my registration code, why?
With the release of X1 Professional Client version 6.2 in March of 2008, X1 introduced a registration format change, moving from a 13 digit to a 16 digit registration code format. The older 13 digit codes continued to be valid forms of registration while the new registration format was being introduced and fully integrated into the product. With the release of X1 version 6.2.4 this integration process is complete.
Beginning with the release of version 6.2.4, X1 will only accept registration codes that are 16 characters in length. If you have an older 13 character registration code you will not be able to unlock v6.2.4 or later releases. Continuing to install the product without a valid 16 digit code will cause X1 to install as a 14 day trial.
Can I use X1 Professional Client with my AOL, Yahoo!®, Hotmail®, or other web-based email account?
Yes and no. There are several versions of X1 Professional Client and they work with the most popular email programs available today (Outlook, Outlook Express, Lotus Notes and Thunderbird). If your email account allows you to use one of these programs to access your mail, then the version of X1 Professional Client designed for that program will be able to scan and index the mail. Usually this access is done through a POP setting. Please contact the customer service department of your web-based email account for help in using one of these programs with their service.
Please note that X1 Professional Client does not currently support IMAP and Hotmail.
Is X1 Professional Client available for the Mac® or Linux®?
No. At this time, X1 Professional Client only works on the Windows platform.
What are all of these results? I don't see any relationship to the search terms I entered.
X1 Professional Client indexes the content of your email, files, attachments, and Outlook contacts. When you start entering a search term, we find all instances of those terms within the documents and files that have been indexed. Because of this, you may not immediately see how a file or document relates to your term.
If you select the file from the list on the left, a preview of the document will appear in the window on the right with the search term(s) highlighted. Take a closer look, and you will quickly find that the file contains the search term(s) you entered.
X1 Professional Client also indexes file attributes (file name, subject, etc.). X1 Professional Client will include attributes in its search results. So the results you see may not have the search term in the content of the file but in one of the file's attributes. Check the columns at the top of the left pane for highlighted hits.
