If you wish to see a certain feature implemented in EssentialPIM, vote for it so that we know how "wanted" a feature is by looking at the number of votes it gets.

We didn't impose any limitation on the number of features you can vote for, although please keep in mind that our resources are limited and therefore vote only for the ones you really need.

What about a find-and-replace capability, like a word processor has. I just had to export my contact list to a csv file, open it in a text editor (or spreadsheet would do), change the email addresses for 659 entries to the new domain, then reimport the whole list back into EPIM. It was straightforward, but it would have been nice to do it in EPIM.

You can do most simple find / replace operations like this in tools > Advanced search...

I've only had to export contacts out once, and that was because I needed to use a Regex find/replace operation.
