But I have been using Eudora frequently over the last 10 years...in fact used it yesterday. So what is going on? It downloads email correctly.
Eudora should have contacted me. Therefore, I will expect that Eudora will pay for your service. I will only pay for your service if the Eudora OSE works on my MacG5 system with MacOS 10.5.8. Otherwise, I feel that your service did not offer anything that fixes my system at this time. If the change over to the new Eudora takes too much time I will move to a completely different mail tool.
I understand that, but I did not expect that such would happen overnight. I will now try to contact Eudora to find out if the new version that you indicated actually works on MacOS 10.5.8. I have tried some of their new versions a few years ago and they failed to function completely. I think I need a company that will commit to their product and let me know if they are discontinuing it.
I am not blaming you, as I agree this is out of your scope, but the solution that Eudora suggests may not be good enough for my current system.
Thanks for your help. I will provide your rating on the next response that you provide.
Are you aware of what Mac platforms and operating systems that OSE works on?
According to the readme, the following is supported. Note, however, that Qualcomm has essentially "dumped" the original Eudora. "Eudora OSE" is a branded version of Thunderbird with some extra features added by the Eudora developers.:Operating Systems- Mac OS X 10.4.x and later Minimum Hardware- Macintosh computer with an Intel x86 or PowerPC G3, G4, or G5 processor - 256 MB RAM (Recommended: 512 MB RAM or greater) - 200 MB hard drive space
Accurate information that explains that I have to install yet another version of Eudora is not what I thought I was going to pay for, hence I may not even try OSE, but rather go to another mail tool and move forward. The service that John provided was not acceptable to me as I feel that Eudora should have contacted me prior to their pulling the plug on my service. This fact alone tell me I should drop anything that Eudora produces now or in the future.
I suspect that John could have solved other issues that I have spent my own time solving by working with Apple, Schwab, Oracle/Java, and other providers, hence I will consider returning to Just Answer in the future and maybe John will help me again and more than meet my expectations on solving the problem
without changing applications.
This is my last reply. Thanks John and sorry I used your valuable time.
