i.Scribe is a cross platform application that allows you to maintain one folder of email and contacts for both Windows and BeOS. This has the side effect of not being able to use OS specific email features, like the BeOS mail folders and the Windows MAPI message store. Scribe uses it's own message store format

Bug fixes:
  • Fixed contact window appearing on shutdown.
  • Fixed add contact window disappearing on item single click (supposed to be double click).
