Tons of programs can do that. Have to find out you like.

I my self just use my email client Thunderbird. Its free and has TONS of free add-ons to give you more features :-)

A local church is a custom of mine, a few years back I made them a little database program to store names and addresses. I made it for free for them, only took me a day. Maybe I should redo it and put it out as a free little app?

Yeah I attached a screen shot of it (I blurred out addresses and phone)

Who knows, wouldn't take much to make a few changes to it and add it to my toolbox :-)

that looks great...is it very user friendly? as i said before my boss isnt very good with technology. i just recently talked him into getting an android, before that he was using one of those old school flip open phones. im slowly but surely getting this shop updated as far as organization and tech is concerned

Those 3 windows are all there is to it lol

Once the new site tweaking.com is up and going maybe I will take an hour or so and put that app out there. Of course only if you or someone can use it lol

how hard would it be to add a line for email and one for notations and ....is the program searchable ...meaning say someone called me 6 months ago about a 71 cutlass fender and i had put it in notations section can i go in a search box and type cutlass or something like that or even type in their phone number to find my records about that conversation?...and if not how hard would it be to make that happen...i would love to be able to do what you do but i dont even know where to begin...im getting better at html and im starting to learn css but i dont even know what kind of language you use to write the kind of stuff that you are making.

Hit me up in a week or so about it and I can see what I can do.

Everything is stored in a access database and the program is a front end for it :wink:

I will be working on adding over 2 dozen pages to the site today. Then work with my partner on the site to get it fine tuned. I am hoping to have the site live VERY soon :-)
