Short details EffecientPIM does tasks, calendar, contacts, and notes.

EfficientPIM supports a vanilla GTD system, though people using more automated time management systems (such as TRO) may feel hampered by limited features--such no saved task views.
Setting Jello Dashboard as Outlook homepage allows a GTD-style workflow. Collect, review, and do all from one place. Jello Dashboard can even be used on a locked-down company machine because it does not require installation.
