Works great I have been using it for 2 years with no significant errors or bugs. Works well with ASP, PHP, MYSQL.

Has advanced features like easy web interface, hosts addition features. Log works with Webalizer and I use baretail to view logs in realtime

Hi, anyone here know why I cannot connect to (Abyss configuration page) when using Privoxy, is there a workaround ?
If I use No Proxy then ok but not when Privoxy enabled. I tried other web server app like Xampp or Tiny Webserver then ok, only Abyss have this problem ?

Cattleya: have you tried changing the admin port (away from 9999)? Privoxy might be redirecting it for some reason.

I reckon there should be a mention somewhere in the entry's description that Atom is based on (in fact, is like the ur-deployment of) the Electron framework [https://! Broken URL, please copy excluding the exclamation, paste and amend].

CherryTree produces great formatted HTML export. It's fully customisable after-the-fact, with the included styles.css. Embedded files, images and the HTML files are stored separately from each other.

i.Scribe v2.1.22 New

billon on 25 Oct 2016
  • 10MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 18 Oct 2016
  • Suggested by Pixador

i.Scribe is an email client with an integrated contact database and calendar. It supports SMTP, POP3 and IMAP4, and comes with an accurate Bayesian spam filter. It also protects you from the usual security holes in other email clients with it's own virus safe HTML control and executable attachment protection. i.Scribe is actually the free version of the commercial product InScribe, so it supports only one email account and one user-defined filter.

How to extract: Download the installer and "install" to a folder of your choice. Launch Scribe.exe.

Just tested it out and it works like a charm! Too bad that it only supports one email address at a time, but it does work. =^^=

Very light and fast, but it didn't want to send my mails. Maybe it's because of not so much to set in account settings.

A stable version 1.90 seems to be available as well as a 2.00 beta. However, somewhere in the 1.90 changelog it says that it writes to the registry.

Tested on Windows 10 64bit:
After closing Chrome and the platform 13.0 I found files in this folder:

There was a Crashpad issue causing the APPDATA directory to be left behind that was fixed in today's releases. I can't reproduce the others on any OS. Please post a complete bug report in the support forum here: We have hundreds of apps and bug reports as comments on another site often won't be seen and won't wind up being addressed, at least not in a timely manner.

@JohnTHaller: Thank you for the new release. Regarding the registry entries that are left behind I will post in the forum.
