Are easy software programs available for maintaining address lists?

Question: “I am looking for easy to use software for maintaining address lists for a church office.  Ideally, it would differentiate members and "friends," list names, phone numbers, birth and anniversary dates.  What do you use?  How easy is it? And most important, how much does it cost?” — Anonymous

I currently have that same type of task at my office - but instead of church members - it is corporate suppliers and high volume customers info. I use the contacts tool through microsoft outlook. I can change it to a "grid" view (or whatever works best for that situation) - I can flag individuals as "customer" "employee" or "supplier" - or any other titles I choose/make up - and can print address books - make mailing lables, etc - for one of those groups or for all. I find it incredibly easy to use & extremely user friendly.

There are two options that I'm aware of, Access and ACT! by Sage. Personally I find ACT! a lot more user friendly. Act! is like a combination of Outlook (calendaring) and Access (database). It is really really easy to use. Not sure of the cost as our company bought it.

I would also recommend MS Outlook. It has all the features your are requiring. As a firm we use Goldmine, but it's more complicated than Outlook.
