Eudora v6.2 has been released in 2005
It is a wonderful email client, extremly fast and able to manage a lot of email efficently.
- multiple pop account
- Mail downloading
- Mail reading / writing
What does not
Since wine 0.9.x, there is a small annoying issue with the "list of mail / mail preview" panel. When the last email is selected and you select another mail, the previous one stay selected, and the preview panel try display both emails.
There is some html email that cause a Fatal Exception, it may be related with the html module of wine (because Eudora, depending of the configuration, could use the Internet Explorer module as HTML rendering).
Also, it seems that, after Eudora runs for a couple of minute, Eudora report a Fatal Exception and crash. I used to keep this application always running; now i had to open it, read-write emails, and shut it down (sounds like a little work around).
Finally, the internal spam blocker has never worked on linux. It did not report any error, but do not filtered any email at all.
What was not tested
I do not use the internal Address book, so i cannot tell if it works properly or not.
Worked better on wine 20050830..
