I currently run a small home based business and have used Appleworks for my database for 10 years
Now I find myself making 2 databases
1 in Appleworks and 1 in Outlook express
I do snail mail outs 2x / year in the past with flyers and Newsletters and am a t a point where I need to take another step into cybertech and go to another level with how I stay in touch with clients
I would like a database that I can merge email straight out of with either attachments or better still with documents within the email AND also do mail merges into printed letters for posting
I have heard Filemaker is good but know almost nothing about it.
I am surpirsed that the address book in OSX (which can be emailed out of, though it has very limited fields) has NOT been made to be mail merged with written documents
What OS version are you running? I have and imac on version 9.0.4 which is very reliable and I have a 17" G4 powerbook OS 10.2.8 which has limped, staggered and crawled along since I got it about a year ago
