Three releases of EssentialPIM 9.9 appeared in June, offering several enhancements and some new features across the modules. We're up to v9.9.6, tantalizingly close to the release of EssentialPIM 10.
Let's take a look at some of what EPIM 9.9 has brought.
We would like to announce the immediate availability of the Pro and Free versions of EssentialPIM 9.9.6. This is more of a maintenance and bug fix release with some additional focus made on improving synchronization with Google services (Contacts, Tasks), OneDrive and on working with EPIM database files through Dropbox.

Update will reach you automatically in couple of days. If you wish to download and install the new version manually, please do that from the Get EPIM page.
Recently I read an article about how to make one’s footprint more green and it described ways to reduce energy consumption when using the internet. One example it reported is a provider who set up servers in the tower of a wind turbine to get electricity at the source, saving its transfer over great distances with lots of lost energy.
When reading this, I thought that everybody can do something. As always, many small consumers can make huge changes when we work together.
So I experimented with an idea.
We are pleased to announce the EssentialPIM (Pro and Free) 9.9 version release. First and foremost, the new version offers the following new features: All Inboxes folder in Mail, ability to sync the EPIM Pro Business edition data with the server while being away from the local network over the Internet, synchronization of your notes with OneDrive, more secure authorization for Office 365 mail accounts, line numbers in Notes, updated sync with Google Contacts and many more. Further, like most EssentialPIM releases, this one also comes with a number of existing features improvements and fixes. The full and detailed changelog is on the Version History page.
The new version can be downloaded and installed manually from the Get EPIM page, you should also get automatic update availability notification from your copy of EssentialPIM within the next couple of days.
Update to EssentialPIM Pro 9.9 is free for all the lifetime license owners and for the regular licenses if they were purchased on or after the June 1st, 2020. For license renewal and upgrade options, please see the Pricing page.
You take the time to log your appointments and to dos, to record your contacts and notes, to secure passwords and connect your email, all to have your world at hand in your personal information manager.
But there is more than what you can type into your PIM. There are receipts, articles, documents, pictures and more that you also want to access. Attachments are the means for bringing in what’s outside.
In this post we'll review this important feature of EssentialPIM.
We would like to announce the release of EssentialPIM 9.8 Pro and Free versions.

We looked in the last post at how EssentialPIM Pro Business Edition (EPIMBE) is not just for businesses, but for families, too. What distinguishes the Business Edition is the availability of a single database to a group. If you need to see and update the same information at the same time as others in your family or work, then EPIMBE is for you.
In this post, we'll look at setting up and running Business Edition and at some tips along the way.
- Notes can now be sorted by their creation date
- Some improvements related to backup and restore procedures
- Fixed issue when deleted tasks were still shown on the calendar's widget
- Improved how series of recurring events are shown for assigned contacts
- Dark theme for widgets should be working on all devices
- Couple of minor bug fixes and improvements
Note, this is a staged roll-out release, so it could take some time till it reaches you
Enza has been using EssentialPIM for a few weeks and wants to know how to make the calendar and other information available family-wide. Besides hers and her husband's work schedules, there are the school activities for their son and daughter to manage. And there are the family to do lists; business, school and personal contacts; and passwords that EPIM can store all in one place.
To get started, Enza has put a lot of this in EPIM on her own desktop, but she doesn't want to be the ongoing keeper of the family information. She knows there must be a way for her husband and children to manage their own details, yet share them with each other.
