Features and hotfixes

The Business and Terminal Server editions include features and hotfixes on request. It means that we will do everything in our power to create additional features and fix the found bugs as soon as possible.

Request escalations

For the Terminal Server edition, if our support service won't be able to help you with your request, the request can be escalated to product management and developers directly.

Can I use the Business edition if I bought Personal and the other way around?

No. Your license key is valid only for the edition that you purchased, so you cannot activate the Business edition with a key for the Personal one or vice versa. Please be sure to double-check which edition you are buying. If you mistakenly bought a wrong edition, please contact us to get the right one.

Can I use the Personal edition at work and home?

Sure! We've made the Personal edition suitable for two computers so you could enjoy Add-ins Collection for Outlook both in the office and at home.

On how many computers can I activate one license?

Note. Please be informed, that if you exceed the activation limit, your key will be temporarily blocked by our registration server.

Can I transfer my license to another machine?

Sure! You can transfer a license from one computer to another. Simply uninstall the product from an old machine (if possible), then download the product on a new machine, install and activate it using your current license key.

How long can I use my license?

The license is lifetime, meaning you pay once and can use the purchased version of the product as long as you like.

Are there any recurring fees?

There are no annual or any other recurring fees.

I've just downloaded and installed AbleBits Add-Ins Collection for MS Outlook to assess if it is useful for me. I used to have Kutools for Outlook, but somehow my Outlook started crashing on it, so now I'm looking for an alternative.
In order to find out what the license costs are, I've located the Buy-button under About in Ablebits, but I get a website (, that tells me "Product does not exist! At least one of the requested products does not exist."
So a. will I be able to license AbleBits if I like it (after the 30-days trial) and b. What would be the price?

Hello Christiaan,

We no longer sell AbleBits Add-Ins Collection for MS Outlook. We are not planning to develop the add-in further, it will be an end-of-life product in 2023. The Collection was built using the previous generation of the Office extensibility technologies that are out of date. We are moving forward and more focused on cloud-based solutions now.

I installed Outlook Add-Ins Collection on a computer I use for work, but it will not allow me to uninstall it so I can "reclaim" the license. How can I do so otherwise? I'm turning this computer in to exchange it for a newer one.

Thank you.

Dear customer service,

Since saturday some of our users get a notice that the license for Outlook Add In Additions has expired, but we have a lifetime subscription. We tried updating the Add In, but without succes.
Do you have any ideas as to how we can solve this issue?

Kind regards,

Miguel Grant
