    Quickbooks and Microsoft Outlook should do it for you.

    I have Quickbooks Simple Start, it doesn't go into a lot of detail but it gives you all the basic accounting related info that you will need. It is upgradeable so that is why I didn't go with the Pro yet. I think it mainly lacks comparison charts. You may want to go with the Pro for that. The Simple Start is easy to use though if you don't need anything real involved.
