Eudora 6 eats processor power

ms windows


  • 1. received file has no flag
    Hello, while using eudora to receive the emails, all new emails received has no flag, and I cannot tell if the email has been read before or not. outlook and thunderbird has a new flag. It is very convenient. Is it designed this way or there are configurations I need to fix this issue? Thanks.
  • 2. eudora filter problem
    Hello, I want to use eudora v7.1.0.9 to replace outlook. Under outlook, I have a rule settings like this: (From userA or from UserB) and (with Subject xxx or Subject yyy) can it be done from eudora? it looks eurdora only supports (From userA) and (With subject xxx) simple format for filtering. very inconveninent to use. thanks.
  • 3. winmail.dant and embedded pictures
    How can I process winmail.dat to recover embedded pictures? Someone sent me a message with embedded pictures. The message came through with an attachment, "winmail.dat." The embedded pictures aren't displayed by Eudora I presume that the embedded pictures are in fact contained in winmail.dat. Is there some way to make Eudora display them? Is there some utility that will extract embedded pictures from winmail.dat? Windows 2000, sp-4+. I have MS Office 2000 installed, but I don't have either Outlook or Outlook Express actually working (i.e., I haven't set up any account(s) in either of them). Thanks, Fred Holmes
  • 4. Need Help with 5.1 Password Problem
    Hi, all. My dad is on Eudora 5.1 through Adelphia, and he has a problem I can't figure out. When he opens 5.1, it asks for a password. He enters it but it doesn't recognize his password when checking incoming mail. However, when he sends mail, the very same password works fine. Any ideas on what is causing this? Thanks. Todd

Once I've downloaded mail, even small amounts, my Eudora often hangs for
20-60 seconds with the egg timer, the processor use being 100%. I'm assuming
this is something to do witht he junk filter, but if it is it is very

Has anyone else noticed this?

Did you disable moodwatch? Otherwise try it.

Check your "Wait" setting at Tools | Options | Background Tasks. A couple
seconds should be enough.

2.rundns.exe eating 100% of processor

I have been having serious performance problems with WinXP (so bad that I 
added a Linux partition and have been using that for most of my home PC 
needs).  I've tried spyware, adware, virus scanning/cleaning with no luck.  I 
noticed in task manager that there is a process called 'rundns.exe' which 
seems to almost constantly be running at 70-90% of CPU capacity.  When I try 
to end process it just comes right back!  I have done internet searches on 
"rundns" and had zero hits.

Anyone know what 'rundns.exe' is and how do I get rid of it, or at least 
keep it from eating up processor capacity (it runs even when no apps are 

3.eudora slow, non responsive and eating up all my cpu

I use eudora for years, without problems, until this morning,  it is
suddenly slow, non-responsive, and
it also eats up lots of cpu. The latter in such a way that the fan of my
laptop is constantly blowing,
until I shut of eudora.

anybody has any idea what's going on? to my best opinion nothing has changed
between friday afternoon, on now.


4.Eudora 5.x eats CPU......

I run SETI@HOME, a distributed computing client. 

When Eudora is running, S@H averages around 15 hours to finish a work unit. 

With Eudora NOT running, S@H average around 6 hours and 15 minutes.  

So what the heck is Eudora doing sucking up that much CPU just sitting

But it isn't just S@H that is affected. 

On this WinME system , the mouse pointer sticks and the system is
unresponsive for about 3 seconds out of every 6.....sometimes (not all the
time)...and a re-boot will fix it for a while. 

If I shutdown Eudora, the problem goes away - instantly.  

Eudora is most often left running all day and night by this user -
maximised.  I have noticed the screensaver often doesn't kick in either. 

Has anyone else seen this?  It's not new. It's been doing it ever since I
installed v5.1 and still does it with 5.2. 

Both are paid 'versions'. 

I have also - just for the hell of it - upgraded the system in question from
an Intel PIII-600EB to an Athlon 1.4GHz and new mobo (of course). That made
no difference (except for being a hell of a lot faster) which certainly
confirms this is not a hardware problem. 

Has any else seen this? I would this so as I've used two different version
on two entirely different sets of hardware - with the same result.  


5.Eudora "eats" edited messages

Once in a  while I get an e-mail from someone whose spam filter has
decided to list every parameter it checks before allowing the mail to
go out. So, I get a header that's a mile long with all the checksums.
Here's an example:

X-AmikaGuardian-Id: mail7.speakeasy.net106194526623619832

Rather than have to look at this stuff, I hit the Pencil icon and
delete the list. Then I save the mail. However, when I try to reopen
the original message later, it's not there. Nothing is, even though my
"Sort by size" column says it is. (In the latest case, it says I have
a 7KB message, but when I try to open it there's nothing.)

What causes the rest of the message body to disappear? Can it be
