  • 1. Eudora 6 Spam Filter results
    On Thursday, I paid to upgrade Eudora 5.1 to 6.0. Then I manually clicked "Mark as Junk" for 2600 messages in my trash can (half had been caught by existing text filters in Eudora 5.1 and half manually). As of today, here are my spam filter results: 368 spams moved to Junk folder automagically 6 false negatives: 6 spams made it to my In box. Four were of the form, "Let's get together tonight for some swinging"-short, no image, not much for the filter to work with. 8 false positives: 8 legitimate emails dumped in the Junk box. All 8 were newsletters I subscribe to, and were fixed with one click. I'm really happy. The false positives were all one-time events, so they won't be repeated. The false negatives are at 2% or less, and even that percentage might drop over time with training. Now that the technology built-in to the world's best email programs can accomplish this, I'm no longer evaluating third-party services or apps. This solution is too simple and elegant.
  • 2. email not deleting when emptying trash
    I have eudora (6) set to leave mail on server and delete when emptied from trash. however, whenever i empty the trash, it never deletes the email. If i right click the message and select 'change server status' to delete, it works. This is using a POP account. anyone have any ideas what i can do to fix this? Thanks, ian p.s. replace NOSPAM with merk if replying via email
  • 3. setting up Eudora to use AnalogX Proxy
    I've just installed AnalogX proxy, and though everything else is working on my laptop, eudora can't get mail. Eudora's instructions say that nothing needs to be changed, I received different instructions elsewhere, but whether I set the mail servers to the actual servername or the proxy IP, I can't get mail (host not found, or now I'm getting "tired of waiting for the server"). Any help appreciated. jmc Decode to reply: jNOmSPAMc@NOequusBODYdotHOMEws

Works fine on my old Win 98 machine. follow-up to my last message: people recommend that you create a 'user.js' file in the same directory that holds the 'prefs.js' file, with the mail-to line. that way, you can avoid losing this customization on a subsequent re-install.
  • 5. Second Request: Check Mail Interupts Typing. Cursor Dissappears
    Sorry for the re-post, but no one responded. If I happen to be typing when Eudora checks for mail, the cursor disappears and goes "somewhere". I have to click the mouse back on the desired text input position to resume typing. It was really noticeable when I set Eudora to check mail every minute. I switched to every 5 minutes, but that still is causing problems. I can increase the delay.... but is there a way to fix this correctly? thanks, Kraig Whiting

As noted earlier, this just came out of the blue. No settings were
changed that I know of. I can't send anything, but mail is received
just fine.
     Has anyone had this happen and do you know of a cure?
Mozilla Thunderbird has no problems sending.
     Help much appreciated.

Do you have your "use name and password" checked under Tools -> Account 
Settings -> Outgoing Server(SMTP) -> Edit?  It could be that Verizon 
changed their settings.

I don't see the rest of the thread here, so perhaps i've missed some 
history.  If so, please excuse my post.

In Thunderbird, for the Verizon SMTP server that you are actually using,
what are these settings:

Server name: ?
Port: ?
Use secure connection: [which choice?]
Use name and password [is it checked?]

Now look at the "Properties" of the personality in Eudora
which you are using to send mail (right-click the personality icon
in the "Personalities" tool window to get to the "properties").

Is the SMTP server name the same?

Is the "secure connection" choice made in Thunderbird
the same as the "Secure Sockets when Sending" choice in Eudora?
(it's the same four choices, and same default port for each)

Does Verizon use port 587?
Does this match your "Use...587" choice in Eudora?

Is "Allow authentication" check-marked in Eudora? (should be)

Is the user name associated with your Eudora personality
(the one sending mail) the exact same user name you gave to Thunderbird?

Thank you both. I have just returned from a trip and will check these
settings tomorrow.
     I hope your ideas will help, but I will point out two things:
(1) In the past I experienced *intermittent* authentication errors.
These generally occurred with complex e-mails (forwards with
mixed fonts, for example) or those with large attachments. This
 is the first time the problem has been indefinite and applying to
even the simplest test messages. 
(2) I downloaded Thunderbird when Eudora wouldn't work,
and I did an automatic transfer of Eudora settings at the time,
so I wouldn't think the setttings in the two could differ but I
will check.
     Thanks again for your interest. I'll be back soon.
         Frank

good luck.  the only thing i can think of that would be giving you those 
problems is some sort of timeout, or something like that.  strange.  You 
can also play with the smtp submission port too - you can try port 587 
instead of the default 25.  But that's just a shot in the dark. 
Finally, if you have access to a different SMTP server, you can set that 
one up instead of verizon's.

There's been a lot of discussion (no solutions yet) in the local Verizon
groups about these intermittent authentication errors.  Although I'm a VZ
user, I dumped their email (not for this reason) about 2-mo. after I signed
up for their service a few years back.  It was just too intermittent and
very flakey... especially black hole emails (both OUT and IN).

Could you show me where to look for this discussion??? I am most
interested to see what others are experiencing. The problem, once
intermittent, now appears permanent. I need help from others.
    Note that switching my email programs (Thunderbird) seems to
have solved the problem.

Jerry Wolf's post elsewhere

Note, however, that the error which "frank1492" is reporting
(which is the "Subject" of this thread)
is while _sending_ via SMTP,
whereas the error which Jerry Wolf is reporting
is while _receiving_ via POP.

Sometimes the outgoing (sending, SMTP) errors occur because of
not even marking "Allow authentication" (something which you can't forget
for POP, because there's no such thing as POP without authenticating),
or because of the SMTP server in a given personality
having a different username/password than the POP server
(this requires telling the POP personality to get its SMTP info
 from a different "relay" personality while sending mail).

If the specific error (as may be revealed by a log)
happens to be in the same area as Jerry's
(authentication using CRAM-MD5),
then one might try telling Eudora not to use CRAM-MD5
(this will apply both to POP and SMTP,
so perhaps it will cure two separate diseases at the same time :)

Paste the following into a new message in Windows Eudora
and click on the resulting highlighted "link"
while pressing ALT on keyboard, then click OK:

X-Eudora-Option:SMTPAuthBanished=CRAM-MD5

1.#5.1.0 smtp;550 5.1.0 Authentication required

I'm a novice MCSE. On the side I'm supporting a small network (SBS - 3 
workstations - Exchange).  The small network was built nicely by a networking 
company who became too expensive for my client, who is a friend, who asked me 
to support it.

The first Thing (and only thing) I've done was changed the Administrator 
Password on the server.

Now I've had reports of this error when users try to reply to emails.

 The e-mail address could not be found. Perhaps the recipient moved to a 
different e-mail organization, or there was a mistake in the address. Check 
the address and try again.
  <mydomain.com #5.1.0 smtp;550 5.1.0 Authentication required



They can email successfully if they type out the email address, but it will 
not work when they simply hit reply and send.

Does anyone know what I can try to do to fix this?

Thanks

4.What are 550 & 553 errors, Verizon says they are Eudora codes

According to Verizon, the error coded 550 & 553 are Eudora's codes and
not Verizon codes.

It occurs when trying to send mail accessing a Verizon smtp server, 

I get a smilar message when trying to send to the same account using a
different IP smtp server.

I can send to and from within Verizon's Net mail but not when using
Eudora.

Am using 6.2paid, WinME, Norton Anti, Z A firewall (both norton and ZA
have been shut down and the error still occurs.) K6 450MHz, 256meg
ram.

This started after updating to 6.2.0.14 several weeks ago, the problem
may have been there for a while, just noticed it Wednesday. 

Just can't get consistant responses to narrow down the field of
possiblities.

Thanks in advace,
Jeff

5.550 Authentication Error

I'm trying to use Eudora to send and receive email from an account other
than my ISP. In Outlook I can do this by setting my outgoing mail server to
my ISP server and then selecting the "My outgoing server requires
authentication" option. This prompts me for the user name and password for
for my ISP account.

With Eudora, under Getting Started, I can select Allow Authentication but I
am never asked for a user name and password. I recieve the "550 relaying
mail to <domain name> is not allowed" error.

Thanks,
mike
