This program is like an internet address book with extras. It has 4 databases; address, e-mail, server, and homepage. The address section has the normal name address, city and state; and sections for a home phone, business phone, fax number, cell phone, and a pager number. It also has a dialer, an a button, that when registered will send e-mail.

The e-mail database has room for the account name, user name, e-mail address and password, and a IN_POP3 and a OUT_SMTP section.

The server database has room for the server name, host name, diag_IP, diag_pert, frequency, DSN_IP, dial-up, and alt dial-up; also an FTP server, news server, and time server, and an in and out box.

The homepage database has a home server, home URL, username and password, and also a FTP site, a FTP_upload and a http-file transfer section and a last_up section. All four databases come with a find or search button, and a nav. bar which deals with entering and editing records. If you put the mouse pointer on the nav bar button, the name of it will appear under the nav bar so you don't push something you didn't want.

There is also a calendar, that sets itself by your pc calendar at the end for your convenience, and each database comes with a notes section, so you can keep whatever kind of notes on any records you have.

There is also a back-up [to 3.5] and restore feature for each database, so you don't run the risk of losing your data.

So do you do a lot of business on the internet? Have you found that the address book isn't very good for these kinds of addresses? Then this program will really help out a lot and if you register you will get the next version for half price and a "few added features for free."
