I've done a lot of research (and bought a bunch of crap) as well and I
really wanted something besides MS. Unfortunately, Outlook98 is the BEST.
E-mail, faxes, calendars, appointments, tasks, journals, time and NOTHING
integrates better with MS Word. OL takes a lot of ram (16mb), but I really
haven't seen anything that does everything better.

To my fellow computerized engineers:

We are looking to upgrade / change our address book program on the computer
Windows 95 based PC system).  Currently, we use Office Accelerator, which is
adequate, but not great, and I'm not sure they have a new version out.

I have looked at Microsoft Outlook, but am not convinced.  Several people
mentioned Act, but I have not tried it yet.  Before we spend all the time
energy converting to a new program, I was wondering if anyone had any input
war stories they would like to share.

Generally, we are looking for something that will be used primarily as an
address book, but should be able to work well with our word processor (Word

Thanks in advance for your input.
