    Hi, I have recently dropped aol and have gone to outlook express. I am finding it to be very hard to use. I do not want to go back to AOL because it seems to take over everything but it sure was easy to use. Is Eudora a program that will make e-mail and newsgroups eaasy to use? Please advise. Tim fm CT
  • 3. Changing single click/double click
    Hi all, I am a Computer Power User so use my pc alot, particularly important is my email client. Unfortunately I don't have a "power training" lol, so I am frequently having to try to find things the "DIY" method. I am wondering if anybody is knowledgable enough to know if their is a way to change the Eudora "double click" to "single click" control on the side menu eg. where it sais IN, OUT, JUNK, TRASH. I prefer to use a single click. If it explains how to do this in the installed help, then I appologise in advance but I have looked and could'nt find it listed under "click, single click or double click". I was amazed that Eudora actually had its own newsgroup. I have some points for discussion but will place them on another thread. Thanks in advance for any help, if anybody has any questions about any of the other main clients, please ask, as I have tried and tested them all thoroughly.. Steve

Depending on how "little" that "little" of "little or no trouble"
is, why should you if you're happy with what you've got?

is version 6 worth it?

Only *you* can answer that question, depending on what *you* want
and don't want from your email client.

if so, why?

A recap of all the changes in Eudora since 4.3.2 - the three
"major" releases of 5.x, the, to date, three "major" releases of
6.x, [excluding the x.x.xx "bug fix releases for both the 5s and
6s] would be impossible.  I hope you have remembered them.

For the current 6.2 version, you can find some features info
here:

 http://www.**--****.com/ 

If you're really determined to do your research, you could try
using the older version installers still available to install
them, check the release notes for what changed from the previous
version, then uninstall them.  Here's where you can find those:

Do you want any of the newer features? If you think you might, I'd advise 
downloading the current version and trying it out. At that point you can 
decide whether it offers anything you like better, and if it does whether 
you want to run it in light or sponsored mode or whether you want to pay 
for a year's subscription. (Be sure to use a new program directory when 
you install it. Using the same data directory is okay, although, as always 
when making major changes, I'd recommend backing up at least eudora.ini 
and preferably all your data files first.) If you don't want the new 
version, then you can just get rid of it and go back to what you're using 
now. As OJ mentioned already, you're the only one who can really decide if 
it is worth it to you. I can tell you that I'd never choose to use 4.3.2 
in preference to 6.2, but your needs, likes and dislikes are likely to be 
different from mine.

I went from 4.3.2 to 6 and while I've turned Moodwatch off, the Junk options
are very useful for me. I get as many as 100 e-mails/day since I use it for
work and filtering the junk makes thing very manageable. 

There'll be new ugly icons when you first install the new version, but if you
copy or move the EudoraOldIcons file from Extrastuff to the rooot Eudora
directory, the view will be more familiar.

If you are a moderate to heavy email user: Yes.

It's always worthwhile to stay relatively current. If you have a problem the 
usual advice is to get current at which point it's painful because you did 
not set the timing.

I'm still using 4.2.2, the last version before the ad bloatware started.

I find Eudora tremendously versatile and powerful, really essential to 
do what I need to do.  But 4.2.2 already does all of that, IMHO.  I 
have never needed MoodWatch one single time :-)

I have been using 4.3.2 until 2 weeks ago.

The main reason for the switch was the new ISP requires SMTP authentication.
This feature is not available in version 4.xx

After making the change I absolutely thrilled with spam filtering.

I'm still miffed for shelling out for a v5 upgrade and seeing no new
compelling functionality.  I think they jumped major release numbers
strictly for marketing.  I haven't used v6, but didn't see anything
worth paying for in their product descriptions.

I paid for version 5.0 and found it wouldn't run 24/7 on any computer or
operating system...it freezes if there is ANY kind of network issue that
prevents Eudora from accessing the internet for even a few moments (like
if the DSLAM drops the DSL link for a minute during maintenance or
whatever). Eudora does not recover from this kind of crash...it locks up
tight until it is closed and re-opened.

All versions since v5.0, including the latest, does the same thing.

This is a known issue with how Eudora interacts with Windows and checks
for a network connection. If it thinks there's a good connection, but
there isn't, it locks up Eudora.

But version 4.3.2, which I'm still using, is rock solid and doesn't
freeze if there is a connection issue. It merely reports an error in its
own taskbar, and then tries to connect again after x minutes. If it was
a brief interruption, v4.x will then continue as normal and report the
error in the log file, as it should.

I should mention that I have noticed that v6.x will NOT crash if it
thinks there is no connection, and the option "Don't check without a
network connection" is enabled. However, Eudora will sometimes sit idle
and never check for hours on end if it "thinks" there is no connection,
even when the network is up and running just fine. That defeats the
whole purpose of running it 24/7 though.




I still run v4.3.2 because of the above connection issues with newer
versions. It works perfectly, and newer versions don't really offer
anything of use to me. I don't get any spam at all, so the junk filters
offer nothing to me.

If they ever fix the issue, I'll consider upgrading and paying again.
Until then I'll keep my trusty v4.

Whereas I saw several compelling improvements in 5.0 that I
thought justified the major release number, and shelling out
$2mumble bucks.

Which compelled you - MoodWatch or Eudora Sharing Protocol?

Why in the world did you do that without checking whether you wanted the 
new version first? When you can read the list of changes and try out the 
new version at no cost, it doesn't make a lot of sense to just blindly 
keep renewing your subscription for updates. 


 
I don't know what their logic with version numbers was, but personally, I 
think they probably should have made the change to 5.0 a version earlier. 
4.3 had major changes in the way it worked. 5.0 didn't. It would have made 
sense to me to have called 4.3 "5.0".

Neither, because a) my major Sharing principle regarding Eudora
is that b) as with the majority of other Eudora 5.x+ users, I
share their thinking that MoodWatch is almost  Bill Gatesesque in
being an absolutely ridiculous implementation of a resource hog
that no one in his right mind would want in the first place.

[For those old enough, Bob anyone?]

Seriously, at this late date I can't list specifically the
features new in 5.0 [or those that changed something I didn't
like in EP]  that prompted me to upgrade from EudoraPro
4.whatever.

Good thought, possibly, Katrina.  IEAMRC [If Extremely Aging
Memory Recalls Correctly], I stayed with EP 4.2.something and
never did 4.3.  [Addendum to my just-made response to Steve ...]
Maybe if I'd gone to 4.3, I might not have been so fast to go to
5.0.  Who knows?  Who cares?  We're talking a $2something buck
expenditure made, what?, damned near a decade ago?
