Contact/Address Management

I used to use a Microsoft Outlook add-on called Good Contacts to keep my contacts up-to-date. It would email all the people in my Outlook contact list with the information I had on file for them. They had an option to confirm the info was correct or a link to update the info. It was very handy and helped me have a nice organized contact list with very little work. Unfortunately they were bought by a company who discontinued this tool to focus on a different vision for a service like this (requires your contacts to join and update their info which is annoying).

Does anyone have any ideas, suggestions or tools that can help with automating contact management?

Thanks in advance.

Andy

I use Gmail primarily but could use Outlook if a tool was available to do this through Outlook.

It is said to be very vulnerable. It has too many 'features' that amount to ways to crack into your system.

At our office, they have to change the defaults and tell us never to change them back.

At home, I don't need that much organization.
