Internet Mate is an easy way to keep track of all the addresses, all your email accounts, all your server accounts information, and all your homepages. It also has a calendar but all it does is highlight the current date according to your computer and cannot be edited. It also has a Find box that will search the first field under each section for what you put in it. You cannot have 2 records with the same name in the first field or you will get an error message when you do a find. For example in addresses I can't have 2 people with the last name of Heath if I do when I put Heath in the Find box I will get an error message.

Addresses has fields for all the usual information including 2 phone numbers, Ext, Fax, Cell Phone, and Pager. It also has a notes field, birthday field, anniversary field, last updated field and email address field. When you click on the Home Tel button or the Business button then the phone number and name pops up with a call button if you click the call button it launches the Windows 95 dialer and dials the number for you. It also has a send button that will open up a message compose window with the email address in the To field but this option only works in the registered version. The Email account section is for you to keep track of each of your email accounts and has a field for the Email Account Name, email address, User Name, Password, Pop (in) server, SMTP (out) server, and Notes. The Server section helps you keep track of all the information that you might need about your server. The fields under server are Server Name, Host Name, Diag_IP, Diag_Port, Frequency, DNS_IP, Dial Up, Alt Dial Up, FTP, News, and Time Server, In and Out Mail, User Name, Password, and Notes. The Homepage section has fields for Home Server, Home URL, User Name, Password, FTP Site, FTP Upload, HTTP File Transfer, Last Up, and Notes.

The toolbar has buttons for First and Last Record, Previous and Next Record, Insert, Delete, and Edit Record, Post and Cancel Edit, and Refresh. There is also a backup and restore option which requires you to read the help file in order to find out how to do it.

All in all if you have multiple addresses, emails, servers, and homepages to remember then this program is an easy way to do it. You can register this program via regular mail with cash, check, or money order in US funds. Registering this program will get you the next version at half price, the send button will work, you can get a list of records for each section by clicking browse, and you can preview or print a report for each section by click report.
