i.Scribe is a small and fast email client with an intergrated contact database and calendar. It supports all the major internet mail protocols and uses international standards where possible. i.Scribe doesn't required installing or uninstalled and can be used from a removable drive without reconfiguration. It comes with a bayesian spam filter and translations to many different languages. Updates are published regularly to respond to problems and to add features. Because i.Scribe runs on Windows and Linux you can take your mail with you when you change operating system. And don't worry about viruses, Scribe protects you from the usual security holes in other email clients with it's own virus safe HTML control and executable attachment protection.
Free or Commercial Email Client
i.Scribe is free for everyone to use. No time limits, no nagging shareware banners or number of trials. Use it to your hearts content. It is however limited to one account and five user defined filters. If you want to use more than one account and/or more filters then there is the commercial version InScribe.
Scribe has a built in bayesian spam filter that learns what type of email you consider to be "junk". Once it has a hundred or so spam to train on it can start filtering incomming spam automatically. As your collection of spam increases so does the accuracy of the bayesian filter. Until it reaches a maximum of about 98.5%. All the while producing very few if any false positives (i.e. wrongly classified mail you actually want to see).
Scribe is quite small, about a MB to download. And even when downloaded takes up very little of your hard disk or memory while running. You can easily use Scribe from a portable drive like a USB flash card.
Startup and shutdown are very quick. Typically taking only a second or two. Mail sends and receives go as fast as your net connection allows. No needless waiting around for things to happen (like Outlook). Because Scribe uses a flexible file formats for mail storage you can move email with huge attachments around with no effort at all, unlike some email clients that have to copy the entire email, including attachment to another file on disk causing unnecessary waiting for the user.
Scribe comes totally self contained. You can either use the installer version or just unzip the distribution file. To uninstall either use the uninstaller in the Programs menu or delete the folder the email client was unzipped into. There's no dll's left lying around to worry about. All the data and settings for scribe are stored in it's directory. This also makes it easy to back your email up. (Windows: Some registry settings are used to allow you to use Scribe as your default email client, these are removed by the uninstaller but aren't harmful if you delete the application)
