Subscriptions and software updates:

These require your computer to be able to access our secure server. Older operating systems may not be able to connect to a secure server using current security protocols (TLS1.2 as of this writing). If using an outbound firewall you may need to whitelist our domains * and * if your firewall blocks all websites by default.

RAM, and storage:

For database host, MoneyWorks runs best if available RAM is greater than database size(s). Maximum single database size is 4GB. Available storage should be at least 3x database size. Hard disk or SSD (USB flash drives or SMB/AFP file server may be used for backup but should not be used for live database operation).
For network client, RAM usage is typically ~40MB

Supported Mail Clients

If you wish to have emails sent from MoneyWorks to your local mail client, these are the supported clients:


  • Apple Mail
  • Microsoft Outlook 2016
  • Microsoft Outlook 2011
  • Microsoft Entourage
  • Sorry but Thunderbird cannot be supported—it has no provision for automation. For other email clients that do have scripting support, there is provision in MoneyWorks to roll your own glue script.

    • Outlook 2016
    • Outlook 2013
