Hi, and thank you for asking your question.

When did you first start having this issue with receiving emails in Eudora?

May I set up a quick, secure remote session to check the issue now?

I have been waiting for a very long time. Can you tell me what you are doing and if you are capable of giving me any help.
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.

Please accept my apologies for the delay; I did not see your response until now. Providing you with the steps to connect remotely in a moment; kindly stand by.

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.

Let's get started with the remote session now. Please open up the following link:

On the page that opens up, click "I Agree".

Download the remote file when prompted, and then OPEN/RUN the "Elsinore Screen Connect" file downloaded (at the bottom of your browser window.)

I'll then be connected. Thank you.

what version of eudora is it ?

and yes usually it is eudora especially if it is the older 7.1 version as the new one is merely thunderbird with a different wrapper

the older version of eudora does not handle newer security methods like tts /sls well and its list of trusted certificates is 20 years out of date. so it screws up a lot on security handshakes before it downloads
