@Falaffel: I'm not an i.Scribe user so you probably want to try contacting support about that. Failing that, you might try listing something in our troubleshooting forums to see if someone has run into a similar issue.

I tried zo use I.Scribe vie Imap with my Mailbox. Unfortunately the Imap functionality of I-Scribethis seems to be completely not in a good sape. The performance when synchronizing folder or moving/deleting Emails is very, very slow.
Could it be I am making anything wrong or the actual build has some bugs?

I am using this for almost an year and I recommend this software to everybody.
It's really easy to use and has good enough no. of features.

Here is one trick - minimize it to tray and right-click on the icon. It will show the latest recipient's email id's.

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.

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.

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. =^^=

A great program. I've been using it in a portable mode for years. Includes SSL operation, account previews, filters, etc. Even does a variety of imports and exports. The size puts most of the other clients to shame. Try it!

It is more like 5-7 MB in operation.
