PSA: I've tested both Outlook and Yahoo in version 10 and they both work fine for me.

EssentialPIM free since version 9 can not add e-mail account Google (Gmail) or Microsoft (Outlook) - fails 2-step verification (OAuth).
Version 8 can do it...
Tested repeated on different computers and operating systems.

I have used this PIM for many years however since Yahoo inflicted their new security measures I have been unable to download messages from my Yahoo account, I have followed all the instructions provided by Yahoo to add Essential PIM to the list of message services but to no avail.

Even Anton at Astonsoft could not help as his recommendations were exactly the same as those from Yahoo.

Starts with an upgrade ad every other start, does anyone know how to disable? Must click skip to go to program.

Always wanted to use this PIM because it has E-Mail integrated.
But the E-Mail function lacks too many obvious functions, like
blocking external web-content.

Jan 21 2017 Saturday: Link on EssentialPIM site is to 7.21 not 7.22. Pro link is 7.22, maybe free version will be updated Monday.

General warning:
Databases used with 7.2 are not compatible with v7.13 or earlier.

As the free version is mostly used around here I doubt this next warning is really needed but just in case. V7.2 shipped with a bug in the networking system that makes it impossible to use the business edition networking feature with user accounts. At the time it is strongly advised to avoid updating to version 7.2 if you use the business/network edition.

v7.1 is a huge improvement over 7.0 I'd recommend trying it out now, and most importantly going over to the EPIM support forums and joining in in the suggestion thread even if you just use the free version causally every voice is counting. If there is enough demand we may be able to get the attachment system and contact systems back to a more usable state.
