True confession. About a year ago I began moving my notes from EssentialPIM to another app even though I have been an EPIM user and beta tester for 14 years — almost from the day it came out. The fling didn't last long, and I am committed to EPIM as my notes app once again. This is the story.

Michael's daughter has soccer practice after work every Thursday and he routinely has her there on time. Madhu is writing a book and has organized a mass of notes and resources for her project. Meanwhile, Jorge logs into his investment accounts several times a day without effort.

What keeps these active adults on track? Each one uses an app for personal information management, or PIM. Early PIMs in the 1990s were hand-held devices, also called Personal Digital Assistants (PDA), but now we think of personal information management as the software that has evolved independently of devices or even as a field of study.

Let’s use the acronym itself to see how PIM software keeps Michael, Madhu and Jorge in charge.

We announce the immediate availability of EPIM 8.62. It comes with a new feature that will allow you to get new email messages instantly (works for IMAP accounts) the moment they arrive on the mail server. The new version also offers the ability to add multiple attachments to newsletters at once, includes improvements related to CSV import of calendar events, printing of envelopes, handling of identities for email accounts, and couple of UI enhancements. The full list of changes is recorded in the Version History.

For downloads, please visit the Get EPIM page or click on Help->Check for Updates in EssentialPIM.

Update of the Pro version is free for you in case of a lifetime license or if your license is the regular 1 year of free updates one and you already have the 8.6x series version of EPIM installed.

We are proud to announce the immediate availability of the new major release version of EssentialPIM Free and EssentialPIM Pro 8.6. Version 8.6 offers quite a lot of new features and improvements, some of them are:

  • Global "search and replace" feature in Advanced Search*
    You can now search for and replace any text in any EssentialPIM item from a single dialog. Should be very convenient if information you're going to change is spread over the database in different EPIM modules.
  • Export notes into multiple individual files in one operation*
    Not only you're able to do so now but there's also ability to choose file naming templates for easy indexing.
  • Dialer in contacts has been completely revamped to be compatible with VoIP apps*
    We're moving away from the Windows built in dial-up manager, you will be able to use any app for making VoIP calls from contacts.
  • Auto checking of hyperlinks for broken ones within EPIM database*
    EssentialPIM will highlight in red broken on non-existent links to other items so that you can quickly spot them.
  • Business version offers extended information about items and users that have access to them*
    This information is available in the Properties window (right click on any item) and in the special column in all table views in all modules. You will also be able to quickly change access rights from the Properties window.
  • Import tasks and appointments from CSV files
    With ability to choose which fields are going to be imported into EssentialPIM.
  • Display of additional recurrence info for appointments and tasks
    You will be able to see this information when editing recurring appointments or tasks.
  • Finding the right folder in mail is now easier
    Main account folders are now shown in bold. If you collapse a set of folders and there's folders with unread messages, this is now going to be indicated by a special badge.
  • Additional months column in the Year view in calendar
    Should be easier to navigate through the year view when there's an additional months column on the right.
  • A single installer for the Desktop and Portable versions
    Download the executable file, run it and simply choose which version you'd like to be installed.

*Only in EssentialPIM Pro
