Eudora can now be run in Paid mode without a Paid mode registration code
for a period of 30 days. This allows users to try out some of the Paid
mode-only features, such as the ultra-fast indexed search and SpamWatch. If
a Paid mode registration code is not entered, then after the 30 days has
passed Eudora will revert to Sponsored mode.
A "Recent" submenu was added to both the Mailboxes and Transfer
menus, and a "Recent" folder was added to the Mailboxes window.
These locations contain the 10 most recently used mailboxes. A mailbox goes
to the beginning of the list when its window is opened up. The number of
mailboxes to appear on the list can be changed by a setting in Tools
->Options->Mailboxes. Changing the value of the setting to zero will
remove the feature.
Added the ability the play a wide variety of sound formats for the new
mail sound and for sounds in filters. New formats include MP3, MIDI, WMA,
and even the audio inside of video formats such as MPEG, WMV, and AVI. Added
hidden setting <x-Eudora-option:PlayMediaFlags>, which allows the
current sound/video assigned when new mail arrives or filter sound actions
to show in a media player window. The default value of the flags keeps the
window hidden. To get the player to show up use
Added the ability to save search criteria via File->Save and open the
search criteria later via the menu arrow on the "Search" button.
There is a new "Find Messages Using" menu next to the "Find
Messages" menu item to easily call up one of the saved searches.
Added Edit->Insert->Downloable Picture (also added to the Insert
Object button of composition windows). This allows a link (e.g. http: or
ftp:) to an image to be inserted in to a composition message. This saves
disk space because only a URL reference to the image is sent instead of
embedding the image file. Great for signatures to include a link to company
logo available on web site.
Two options were added for the Eudora icon in the OS system tray, both of
which are in Tools->Options->Display. "Minimize Eudora to the
system tray" makes the OS taskbar item for Eudora disappear when Eudora
is minimized. When it is hidden from the OS taskbar, the system tray icon
will appear. This option defaults to being on. "Always show icon in
system tray" ensures that the Eudora icon always appears, but is off by
default. This keeps the behavior similar to previous versions of Eudora
where the system tray icon would only show up when there are new messages.
Also, the system tray icon now has a context menu when you right-click on
it, which includes easy access to the two options mentioned above and to
some frequently used actions: New Message, Check Mail, Work Offline, and
The Enter Password dialog was modified to show personality name, username,
and server to give a better idea of which account the password is being
asked for. Also, a checkbox to remember the password is now in the dialog.
User-specified words can now be whitelisted in Mood Watch (automatically
marked as non-offensive even though they are in the Mood Watch dictionary)
via the setting <x-Eudora-option:MoodWatchWhitelistWords>. Incoming
and outgoing mail servers are now validated when creating a new personality.
A checkbox in the "Incoming Email Server" and "Outgoing Email
Server" pages in the new personality wizard controls whether the
appropriate service exists on the specified machine. The default value of
this "Test server" checkbox can be set via
Tools->Options->Extra Warnings->Warn me when I: Enter and invalid
server when creating a new personality. Also, there is another validation
method in the Personalities window that checks username/password. Select one
or more personalities in the Personalities window, right-click and select
"Test". The account will be logged in to, but no mail will be
downloaded or deleted. Errors are displayed in the Task Errors window.
The data and application directories listed in the About dialog are now
clickable to open up an Explorer window to the corresponding directory.
Added a new menu item, Tools->Reset Tools, which resets the toolbars
and docking windows to their default state.
Explore Attachment now selects the attachment file in the resulting
Explorer window. There's a couple of options that modify this feature.
<x-Eudora-option:UseExploreVerb> controls whether this new behavior
happens (selecting the file), or the old way occurs (just opening the
directory that the attachment resides in, using the "explore"
verb). The default value is off (do the file selection). Also,
<x-Eudora-option:ExploreAttachOptions> contains the options to use if
the file selection method is being used. The default value for it is
"/e,/select,", which means open an Explorer window in the default
manner (/e) and select the file (/select).
Greatly improved timing of IMAP actions requiring immediate feedback from
Fixed bug resulting in loss of data when transferring multiple messages
from the local Out mailbox to an IMAP mailbox.</ul>
Removed forced logging of indexed search.
Fixed a crash when a nickname is added or removed from the BossWatch or
Recipient lists (only occured in Windows 98).
Now preventing negative numbers from being entered in BossWatch settings.
Fixed crash that could occur when inserting an image that is missing a
file extension (e.g. GIF file without .gif extension).
Fixed bug where outgoing messages created by Send Again would get two
In the Change Queuing dialog, 12:nn in international time (no AM/PM) was
getting treated as 00:nn. This has been fixed so that it is interpreted
Now allowing recovered messages (those with a state of '?') to be manually
marked as Sent, so if the Out mailbox table of contents gets rebuilt then
the user can set the rebuilt messages back to Sent.
Added <x-Eudora-option:RemoveChangePassword> for hiding the Change
Password menu item in the Special menu. It is on (1) by default, i.e. the
menu item is hidden, because there are very few deployments of the password
changing server. Organizations that have a password changing server will
want to show this functionality.
The format of the From: header when doing a redirect is now controllable
by a setting: <x-Eudora-option:RedirectFromFormat>. The value is a
format specifier that uses "%1" for the original sender of the
message, and "%2" for the name and address of the personality
performing the redirect. The default value of the option is "%1 (by way
of %2)", which makes it identical to past behavior.
URL-referenced images (e.g. http:, ftp:) in messages now stay as URL
references, instead of being converted to local files as embedded images.
Fixed bug where undoing a message transfer sometimes wasn't available if
the destination mailbox is not open.
Fixed bug where Eudora could crash when displaying a message with lots of
marquee tags in a row when "Use Microsoft's viewer" is on.
