Eudora fast search updating
The list of mailboxes will open in a separate window.
"Mac users might find this interface to be more like Mac Eudora." Well, not quite, but it's an improvement on the Thunderbird interface.
Eudora happily allows you to check your email accounts individually as well as all at once, and I appreciate that it disables downloading of embedded images in email messages by default, leaving it to the user's discretion to manually bring them down with a convenient button.
However, one bug that I encountered with version 8 beta 3 still hasn't been squashed it this latest build.
With a mail download half-completed, the process stalled, accompanied by a loud and grating buzzing that I could only get rid of by quitting the program and restarting it.
Eudora 8.0 thankfully has an optional 2-pane interface mode that allegedly causes mailboxes to open in a similar manner to Mac Eudora's 2-pane message list and message preview.Odysseus is commercial software (as was Qualcomm's Eudora), not Open Source, and it sells for .95, about the same price as classic Eudora.The program is being developed with support for Mac OS X and Windows, with Linux compatibility being looked at for the future.I say "close", because Eudora isn't perfect, but it's suits my needs and tastes so well that I've continued to use it as my main email application more than two years after Qualcomm terminated development - and despite the fact it's not an entirely happy camper running under Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard".However, there is no Intel-native version of classic Eudora, and the likelihood is that incompatibilities with OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" will render it completely obsolete as a practical email tool, so the dismal reality for me and a lot of other Eudora aficionados is that we'll have to somehow adapt to something else if we upgrade to Snow Leopard. No way I would ever and trust my crucial in real archives to a proprietary file format accessible only with Microsoft software. Well, the price is right, but the feature set and execution isn't.
