Pros & Cons:

Another full-featured PIM. Does many of the same things as Outlook and can import your Outlook data and/or Outlook Express contacts as well. Small file size. A portable version is available.
Caution: Multiple bugs have been reported by a long-term user. Supports repeating tasks (events), but not repeating to-dos. May have trouble with multiple email accounts.

Our Review:

EssentialPIM is another full-featured PIM based on a commercial product. It also does many of the same things as Outlook, including importing data. You can import CSV or vCard contacts as well. The integral email client can handle POP3/SMTP or IMAP4. A portable version of EssentialPIM is available.

There is no way to schedule repeating To-Do entries with free Essential PIM, but by creating all day repeating events you can effectively create repeating tasks. They show up at the top of the calendar day grid.

CAUTION: Significant bugs in EssentialPIM, aka EPIM, have been reported by a long-term user. It may not be suitable for your use.
