Comment on Moving from Outlook (Exchange) to eM Client (Google) by Charlie Mon, 22 Aug 2016 17:10:32 +0000 Em Client I thing works fine for what you are using it for personal email. It just is not good enough for work. For example I am a Realtor and need to keep track of contact notes, tasks, and have it sync with my phone, Calendar etc. Also I can do email merges with outlook, labels, and Follow up with contacts for the next call. Em Client is lacking as just plain text. What I mean by date stamp is when I call a contact I can they insert date stamp next to the note, in em client you would have to manually type it. If you wanted to insert a link, or copy and pasted something into the contact, calendar would just be plain text in em client, no way to schedule a follow up either. So to check email and basic contact notes Em Client is really only solution but Outlook has more features, comes free with Exchange and you do not have to worry about gmail syncing your contacts etc from Em Client which was not working for me, than I would have to send an email to Email client and wait for tech support vs Outlook where I can call an actual person for tech support. Once Windows phones are better in 2017 and can text from Pc will be quite happy that I can leave Android and have everything match in Windows.

Comment on Changing the Divi projects custom post type to anything you want by Sean Fri, 12 Aug 2016 13:39:13 +0000 Gareth, just wanted to say, “Thank you!” and let you know how much you rock! Between Brad’s post at which led me to your post above, the two of you have helped me do exactly what I was wanting to do in record time! Thanks again… Your instructions and code worked like a charm! 😉

Comment on Download Microsoft Money 2005 for free by Gareth J M Saunders Tue, 09 Aug 2016 22:06:21 +0000 Hi Markus, to be honest, I don’t know what would happen if you upgraded.

Could you perhaps backup your MNY file, then try and upgrade and if it doesn’t work then roll back and restore your backed-up MNY file?

I do, however, want to ask: how have you got more than 59 accounts?!

Comment on Moving from Outlook (Exchange) to eM Client (Google) by Gareth J M Saunders Tue, 09 Aug 2016 22:04:26 +0000 I use Em Client for my personal email (Gmail) and I still use Outlook 2016 for my work email accounts (I have four that I have to check daily).

First, the CRM-like functionality that you described is not something that I’ve ever really needed, so I don’t miss that in Em Client because I never really used it in Outlook.

I don’t really understand by what you mean by “no time date stamps to make a note in conversations”.

In Em Client you are able to attach files.

I write most of my emails in plain text anyway, and write a lot of stuff using markdown, so I hadn’t even noticed that you can’t copy and paste HTML. So, again, that is not something that I miss because I don’t use it anyway.

To be honest, I don’t miss Outlook. I now use Todoist for tasks, and Em Client for calendar, mail and contacts and I’m very happy with how these all work. I actually find myself getting more frustrated with Outlook because it doesn’t do some of the cool stuff that Em Client does, such as Ctrl+1 to insert my signature into emails.

Comment on Moving from Outlook (Exchange) to eM Client (Google) by Charlie Tue, 09 Aug 2016 20:55:21 +0000 Now that you have been using Em Client a couple of years do you miss Outlook at all. I downloaded it today and instantly noticed some things that I may not be able to live with. First off no follow up method for contacts, in outlook you select follow up and pick a date and will be in task area. In Em Client does not appear to be anything for this. Also no time date stamps to make a note in conversations, I do not expect a crm but would like to use it as a good contact manager where outlook excels. I do like how you can attach files to contacts and also seems to sync well with gmail. You cant cope and past html files etc into calendar or tasks like outlook, just plain text

Comment on Download Microsoft Money 2005 for free by Markus Tue, 09 Aug 2016 11:34:12 +0000 Dear Gareth,

I am also a veteran Money user. I still run the Version 5 on Win 10 Home, ver 1511 in Swedish.

I have managed to live with most limitations in the product and like you never wanted to switch product, notably as that would mean losing the history.

But now the account limit (63) blocks me.

Do you think I can upgrade to the versions now available, without any problems?

The alternatives seem to be, starting a new file and doing away with the old an unused accounts, or perhaps using a loan account as a savings account, but with a negative balance?

Thanks in advance!
