Eudora is supposed to be running uptill Mac OS 10.6 with no problems.
The problem is with higher OS versions as Eudora is based on an application named Rosetta which is no longer there starting OS 10.7
I made a mistake, my new MacBook Air is version 10.8.4 but I cannot use it until my Eudora is functioning
Can Eudora accommodate the new Mac platforms?
As far as Eudora announced they are not planning a major change in their code to change the way it works until now
Are you open for Eudora alternatives?
I suppose, if there is no other choice, but I have yet to find an email program that can do what Eudora does
I would need to have access to previous Eudora emails for references and comments
As for old emails , I am sure there are many way to import the data from eudora
let me give you a list of alternatives
hold on for a couple of minutes
FYI, I am writing you on a MacBook Pro, 10.6.4, but my new laptop is the MacBook Air 10.8.4
yeah i understand
I am using Thunderbird as my mail client
it has a mac version and it is a very nice mail app with lots and lots of features and plugins
t heard much about it
and its also for free, its from Mozilla
a very popular company which is the developer of firfox browser as well
don't mind paying if it is more secure and better
I understand, but i am recommending this as i have been using it for 3 years now on my windows 7 pc.
It have many features, good support and is very reliable
The alternative is to go for Outlook for Mac from microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/mac/outlook
ok, give me a few minutes to see what I can cook up here....I have to say though that the fact you are still using a PC is interesting
for outlook you will have to buy a license for office for Mac which is around 219.99
The only difference in my opinion is the fancy looks for outlook.
is that annually?
so my suggestion is to give Thunderbird a trial. it is really functional with lots of features and for free
no its a one time license
their is an annual option for office 365 which is 99 $
ok, I will look at thunderbird
check the licenses here
These would be useful to consult for Thunderbird installation: Account Configuration , Installing Thunderbird
am downloading now on other computer
I am getting you also the instructions to import from eudora the mails, contacts, etc..
This is an article for importing data from Eudora into Thunderbird. Automatic importing works if they are on the same unit, which is not your case
You will have to use this tool: its called the Eudora Mailbox Cleaner: http://andreasamann.com/MacOSX/Eudora_Mailbox_Cleaner
you will find the download link at the bottom of the page
check the instructions and limitations on this page to know what can be imported and what can't be
for some reason, I couldn't download thunderbird....got stuck at 1.2 mb... will try again
this is weired
you can try this download page as an alternative: https://www.macupdate.com/app/iphone/11942/thunderbird
you can find the download link at the top
My second choice would be AirMail: http://airmailapp.com/
its for 2$ on the apple store, but its more basic than thunderbird
the reviews here are suggesting airmail as well.....will see, still trying to download
you can check its features here: http://airmailapp.com/features
you can actually give both a trial before deciding on which to use
after all applications are more of a personal preference
see lots of glowing reports for Eudora....worked great and had a very intuitive interface....but not carried on subsequent mac platforms
Eudora would do well to update and go after that market'
I think they got backstabbed by mac
not supporting their main core component Rosetta
Ok, let me still wrangle the thunderbird here
I agree....Rosetta was the key
ok you can bookmark this page here. so if you got stuck on anything you can comeback and ask me any related issue
