Do you have the "January" problem? Have a newer PalmOne device and it keeps on turning back on? This is *NOT* a DateBk issue, but a known bug in PalmOne's devices related to birthday reminders - see this Palm Knowledgebase Article for information on this bug and how to sidestep it (you'll have to remove any birthday reminders that trigger in the prior year).
Are you using the DateBk6's TimeZone feature and wondering about the new Daylight Savings schedule for 2007? Just Click Here for the DateBk6 FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions") that tells you how to quickly how to update your existing installation (all downloads in the past six months included the updated table). Also V-6.1a fully supports timezones in the Palm calendar database .
Having a problem on a newer PalmOne device where it hangs on the calendar conduit? Palm may tell you this is a DateBk problem, but this is not true. It is a known bug in their software which they have yet to address, but the DbFixIt utility has been updated to fix this bug in their software, so just download DbFixIt and use the option to remove deleted records from the calendar database.

I have a new email address and want to update your database
Send an email including your full name and the email address/physical mailing address that you would have used at the time you registered along with your new email address. Note that you need to join a mailing list to get notified of new releases, upgrades, etc.
The majority of inquiries about program operation are about issues that are well covered in the DateBk5 User Manual (see download links in right-hand sidebar of DateBk5 web page: http://www.PimlicoSoftware.com/datebk5.htm) or in the DateBk5 FAQ's or DateBk6 FAQ's
Note that you can type Control/F in Acrobat Reader to search for keywords - a useful way to use the manual.
Advanced technical inquiries can be sent to: . However, if they involve a problem, they must be submitted on a standard Tech Report Form.
Remember, that emails are also answered on a priority basis. Someone who is getting Fatal Exceptions is going to get priority over someone else who is just asking a question that is clearly answered in the FAQ's or User Manual. Before reporting a problem, make sure you are using the very latest release of DateBk5.
Suggestions for improving the product should also be sent to . When possible CESD will attempt to respond to every such suggestion, but on occasion this may not be possible - however that does not mean that the suggestion is being ignored - most likely it has been made before and your email is just filed away as a further support document for that suggestion. Also check the FAQ's for frequently-offered suggestions that for one reason or another are simply not practical to implement.
There are useful forums on the internet where you can post inquiries about these programs. Due to their popularity, there are thousands of other Palm Users who use these products and who often frequent these forums and offer help to people who ask questions. If you have not used these forums before, it's a good idea to read them first to ensure you engage in appropriate 'netiquette'.
The best spot for DateBk5/6 is the useful pimlicodatebk forum on Yahoo Groups which has some fifteen thousand avid DateBk3/4/5/6 users who discuss the best ways to use these programs, and provide a good source for ideas incorporated into future versions. You can go to www.yahoogroups.com and search for pimlicodatebk to find this forum. If you join Yahoo Groups - remember to turn OFF all the options for "marketing" stuff or Yahoo will consider you a target for advertising (for that reason, the group is likely to be moved over the next month or so).
Other general purpose forums include: the Pilot List Server (http://www.ultraviolet.org) an active email group of Palm users, and the main Internet Forum: comp.sys.palmtops.pilot.
