Eudora 8.0.0b3 is a mail and news application based on the open source Thunderbird client from Mozilla.
Eudora, made by Qualcomm, changed dramatically from previous versions and now is moving to the open source trying to maintain maximum compatibility, for both developers and users, with Thunderbird.
Among the new features of this version is the skin of some windows like the Options and the Message Filters windows. The Add-ons is another great feature, clicking the Add-ons option on the Tools menus will show the Add-ons window like in Mozilla or Firefox web browser. Some add-ons available are the DOM Inspector and Penelope both already included in Eudora.
Now you can set up email accounts from Google and add news groups to received information from them.
Eudora adds the Google option to go directly to the Google website, it doesn’t matter which browser you are using Eudora allows you to configure the browser that you want.
Eudora options window now gives the user more control over the way that the messages are shown and notified. The Privacy option changed and some additional options were included like the Junk mail, the E-mail scams and the Anti-Virus now allows the antivirus programs to quarantine individual incoming messages.

Peter Nelson The Eudora 8 beta version is not portable. I have been using Eudora for years and always stored it on a thumb drive that worked on any computer. Now when I change the computer, I loose all my previous mail and mail boxes and have to set up a new account on each computer. Not very satisfactory when the main reason for using Eudora is to take all my emails with me.

Guest I have used different versions of Eudora on my computers a lot of yrs, best (work of art) being Eudora 7.1, as of late due to SLL certificate fails, and certificate updates, fixes to that not working more than a few days, I have given up on Eudora 7.1, and gone to Eudora OSE for the time being, maybe I can get a tech to help me get Eudora 7.1 going again on my current machine.

Guest For years I used to trawl through the eurdora.ini files to remove passwords before I discovered the forget them option this year.
