« Online Conference Burnout | Main | Sandboxing: How to test unfamiliar software securely »

Nov 03, 2021



I have been using Eudora 7.1 for around 20 years and remain very happy with nearly all aspects of it.
The software has not been updated but POP and SMTP remain and so Eudora still works.
Because it has stood still in time with no bloatware and computers have become incredibly faster, Eudora which is a small application works blindingly fast. The program was very mature by version 7.1.

My OS C: SSD drive recently died with no image backup available. So had to start from scratch with everything with a new SSD installed with Windows 10.

Fortunately nearly all my data, including the Data folder for Eudora, had been saved on a separate data drive (as you can direct it to do when you install it). So all of the messages, ini file, mailboxes, address book etc. were saved.

I simply installed Eudora 7.1 (not the 'upgrade' 8.0 beta) in the default Qualcomm folder, and directed it to the pre-existing data folder on the separate hard disk drive during the installation process.

After a reboot, I started the new installation of Eudora and it worked perfectly using all pre-existing options and preferences exactly as I had left it.

With the new SSD drive (the previous drive was six years old) and Windows 10, Eudora was even quicker and worked as well as usual.

Eudora 7.1 lives on!!
