I have been searching for a long while because I have always felt that
using Microsoft Outlook as a PIM would endanger personal data to prying
eyes. That being more than true for the most part, I have a customer who
loved WordPerfect office's sidekick program. Since building him a new
system he decided on all upgraded software of the titles he normally uses
-- However, WordPerfect 86'd sidekick. Seems that Star Office got rid of
their PIM as well. I set him up with Star Office (why be vulnerable to MS
word macro virii?), but I am still looking for a decent personal manager
for dates, appointments, etc... Outlook is out of the question, too
insecure. Besides, I turned him to Eudora anyway.
IBM has Lotus Organizer, anyone hear any vulnerabilities in their software?
Is it secure?
