I'd like to get my wife a program to replace her address book (with mailing address's, not soley email address's). I'd like a free program, one that she could print labels from for envelopes and whatnot. I've checked the freeware apps of this forum and came up empty handed. Searching online has only found programs where they want money. Does anyone know of a good free address book program?

I've tried to use outlook express, but was unable to get it to retrieve her email. It kept telling me password rejected, and I know it's the right password, as I typed it in maybe 20 times (and she even typed it in too!). After 15 minutes I broke down and actually read the help file :trumpet: . After another 20 minutes, I broke down again and read the Yahoo help file :cool: (she's got yahoo email). After another 20 minutes, I broke down and called both programs a few "colorful sentance enhancers" :flowers: :thumbsup: .

If I can get outlook express to work, great. If I could get a free, stand alone program that just does address's, even better! I would very much like a program that will let me input address's and then print them to a label for mailing envelopes and whatnot.

Thanks in advance! :inlove:

I have used Thunderbird for quite a while now.
It's address book is pretty extensive...you can enter the contacts home address,fax,home and cel numbers,pager number,nickname and business information.

You can print cards from the address book,but thats about as good as it gets.

BTW,I'm still luvin my sig! :thumbsup:

I believe if you can export the address book with the fields intact - you'll be able to import them (by field) into a word processing or spreadsheet program (such as the one in OpenOffice).

I did this once (a long time ago) for my wife but have forgotten exactly how (other than I was using MS Office at the time).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Of course I googled it! Well, ok.....so maybe I forgot to type in "free".....minor technicality I assure you! :inlove:

Have you used that one dc3? I'm just wondering if you can print from it.....it's a feature the wife wants for mailing xmas cards and whatnot......bah-humbug :cool:




Thanks for the replies everyone! I'll have to give them a whirl when I get home (I can't install squat while I'm at work!). :thumbsup:

Another option if you have Excel. Create an address book in Excel, then use mail merge in Word to create the address labels. You have to type in fields for this to work. I haven't done this for a LONG time, so I can't provide better specifics.

I have been test driving this one for a few weeks. I like the interface. I have not tried printing labels yet. Give me week or so and I will have my dot matrix backup with continuous feed labels and I will let you know.
