• I have to replace Eudora, but with which email client?

    From ijones@jejejeje.it@21:1/5 to All on Thu Nov 4 12:07:58 2021
    Hi friends,
    unfortunatelyI think the time has come to replace Eudora 7.1 with
    another more modern email client. I love Eudora but I get problems.
    I have problems with the Check. I would not want to lose all the
    messages I have and they are very many with many accounts.
    Can you recommend a good and modern email client?
    Thanks

    Pandora is designed specifically to be as much like Eudora as possible, and is kept up to date with modern formats and protocols.
    It will also import all the information form Eudora, messages and contacts. It's not free (although pretty cheap), but there is a free version you can use to try it out.

    Thanks for you news. If I remember well, you need to install an old
    version of Pandora if you want to import the messages from Eudora to
    Pandora. Is it right?

    Not that I recall.

    BUT...

    You will need a PAID version to import more than one personality, one signature, etc.

    The "Importing Witch" (apparently the author doesn't like wizards) allows for
    accounts
    contacts
    filters
    labels
    messages
    (though only one at a time, meaning you'll need five passes -- biggest confusion is that [I just started the "witch"] it wants UAC privileges, and that means it defaults to your admin account when selecting the mail
    program -- choice of Eudora, Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows Live [Outlook Express, Windows Mail, and Unix Mailboxes are ghosted/disabled] -- I didn't
    go further to see if I can change it to import from my user account; of
    course, one could use the admin account to change the user account to
    admin, do the imports, then revoke admin from user <G> )

    Not as far as I know, all versions should import.
    I don't use it so I can't really comment on it.
    One way to find out, download it and try it!

    I have only one problem with Eudora. When Eudora checks messages
    automatically many account I see many page like it that I attach. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4ilp668ufemxom5/CatturaEudora.JPG?dl=0
    But if I check messages manually, Eudora works fine.
    In your opinion can I solve this problem?

    It asks if you want to trust this certificate in the future. Since you
    continue to get mail at these locations, maybe click YES?

    I'm not sure why there would be any difference between an automatic check and a manual check.
    Presumably you've tried just saying yes to trusting the certificate in future sessions?

    OK, but I have always to click on "yes" on all my accounts every time
    I turn on the computer. Then I have no problems anymore. But when the
    computer goes also into hibernation I have always to click on "yes",
    because I don't work with my computer for 30 minutes.

    I always clkick on yes, but the next time I get the same problem.
    U use Eudora in a noteboo and in a PC but I get the same problem with
    both. It seems incredible. May be the problem is I have 25 account.
    In your opinion could be it the problem?

    This is unclear... Unless you have Eudora configured as some "autostart" service, just powering up the computer should not affect
    anything doing with Eudora accounts. Starting Eudora, however, may produce prompts, but it is not clear just what prompt/dialog-box to which you are referring.

    Depending upon configuration, Eudora may prompt for account passwords when starting up (meaning one does not have Eudora configured to save
    passwords between sessions).

    If you are getting certificate errors, you need to follow the chain of certificates and approve any with a "skull" icon -- and repeat that process until you get to the bottom of the chain (which could mean multiple "fetch mails" to trigger the next level down).

    Regrets, I've been using Pandora for something like three years now, and don't actually recall how to access the certificate chain (I did just
    start Eudora, but it fetched mail with no problem, and the "last ssl info" button on the personality configuration is just stating "no ssl
    performed"...)

    A 30-minute or so time-out also seems to imply configuration -- as if your email login information is not saved permanently. However, the manual states that if you don't have "save password" set, the passwords are saved
    for the session, not timed out. Don't know how coming out of hibernation affects Eudora -- if it treats it (somehow) as a fresh start-up it would
    then forget passwords.

    Unfortunately myEudora has a good config. with HermSSL.
    Anyway it is configures in an automatic Check when I open Eudora.
    I do't have any "skull" icon and I saved the passwords ... if I
    understand you well. I don't know if I have to config. Eudora in
    Tools/Options.

    Out of curiosity: the latest Pandora version can import accounts,
    messages, mailboxes, filters, etc. etc.
    Thank you for some info.

    Did you say that you never see the certificate error if you check mail manually on the accounts?
    Does any mail download when you see the error?
    It's probably only one account that has the problem.

    My problem is very strange because I never got this problem.

    Did you say that you never see the certificate error if you check mail manually on the accounts?
    Yes, if I check email clicking manually on every account, I don't see
    any problem. Every account works fine.

    Does any mail download when you see the error?
    No, Eudora Eudora remains blocked and does not download emails until I
    click "YES" on each certificate.

    It's probably only one account that has the problem.
    I don't know because very account works fine if I check manually
    emails.

    Is "Check Mail" checked on the properties of every account?
    If so try removing them all and then adding them back one by one.
    If they all cause the error then we need to look elsewhere, but at least that will eliminate whether there are a particular account or accounts causing the problem.

    Yes, "Check Mail" is checked on every account.

    That is very strange, as if all the "Check Mail" options are unchecked, it shouldn't be doing any checking of course!
    Looking again at the screen shot of the error message, that doesn't actually look like a message from Eudora.
    I wonder if it's coming from something else. Do you have any security software installed? If so, try disabling it temporarily and see if that makes any difference.

    I have to correct myself:
    when Eudora gets stucks on Accounts, if I click "Yes", everything is
    fine and mails are downloaded with manual check. But even when and if
    I click "YES", I am noticing a strange thing, in fact I have a bad
    certificate. In fact, if I go to "Certificate information manager", I
    have to manually add it to the secure certificates. But I repeat: even
    if I don't do this, it's okay if I do the manual check.

    Perhaps it's a system certificate failure, which is affecting everything.
    Have you tried installing it to the system as well as trusting it in Eudora?

    I'm doing more and more careful tests.
    The problem with automatic check is with all accounts. I get the
    certificate problem with every account. But even if I don't click
    "Yes" and do the manual check, then Eudora is able to download the
    mail normally (even if on "Last SSL Info" there is the skull, Eudora
    is enabled to download mail normally, if I do the manual check, the
    skull automatically disappears). But if I don't click "Yes" at first, everything is blocked.

    Perhaps it's a system certificate failure, which is affecting everything. >Have you tried installing it to the system as well as trusting it in Eudora?

    I don't understand well what I have to do. Maybe HermSSL is not
    working well? But I have the same problema with both computers.

    I FINALLY DISCOVERED THE PROBLEM: it is BitDefender that created those certificate problems on Eubora. In recent days I had tried to disable
    it but maybe it was working in the background. Now I don't load
    BitDefender anymore when I turn on the computer and Eudora works
    fine. All this seems incredible to me. In fact I had configured
    BitDefender correctly. On BitDefender there is the Option to check
    emails "in and out" and I had removed the flag (disabled). But
    evidently BitDefender was working on Eudora.
    At this point I think I should change the AV or call the BitDefender
    help desk to be able to configure BitDefender better.

    Very pleased that you found the cause!
    I did have a suspicion that the problem wasn't actually in Eudora, as all of your 25 accounts being affected the same made no sense as Hermes was apparently working fine to make the TLS v1.2 connections.
    I hope it now keeps working!

    I really don't know, but frankly if switching it off enables Eudora to work properly, and you still want to carry on using Eudora, leave it switched off!
    I would very much doubt that it would open up a big security hole in your system, it's very common for some facilities on security software to cause issues with some other software and have to be disabled. I really wouldn't worry about it.

    I would very much doubt that it would open up a big security hole in your system, it's very common for some facilities on security software to cause issues with some other software and have to be disabled. I really wouldn't worry about it.

    Note that Eudora uses a two-step system for inbound email. The first step saves the message in the spool directory. THEN the spooled messages
    are processed into the IN box (or filtered to other boxes).

    As a result, one seldom needs to have virus checkers checking the network traffic -- they only need to check the spooled file WHEN Eudora
    starts processing it into a mailbox.

    I would just like to inform you that a very strange thing has just
    happened to me.
    Eudora hasn't downloaded one message that is in my account on the web.
    It is not in a Junk folder.
    I had to go online to be able to read mymessage that Eudora didn't
    download.
    The same email was sent to ....@gmail.com and ....@tin.it
    I didn't get both.
    Such a thing had never happened to me.

    I've never had that happen to me either, but I have heard of it happening occasionally to other people.
    Unfortunately I don't think the cause was ever determined.
    I would think it's possible that the message won't work with the POP message retrieval system for some reason (assuming that's what you're using) rather than an actual problem in Eudora. No other POP e-mail client would retrieve it either if that were
    the case.
    Is there anything odd at all about the message? Is it just plain text or does it contain HTML and/or embedded images?

    It's a message youtube sent me. Nothing in particular. But the
    strangest thing is that the other Eudora I have in another laptop
    managed to download it. It is incredible but true.

    That is strange, I've had loads of e-mails from YouTube over the years, and they've always been delivered fine.
    We'll probably never know, but it could have been something with had nothing to do with Eudora at all.

    Thanks for you news. If I remember well, you need to install an old
    version of Pandora if you want to import the messages from Eudora to >>Pandora. Is it right?

    Not that I recall.

    BUT...

    You will need a PAID version to import more than one
    personality, one
    signature, etc.

    The "Importing Witch" (apparently the author doesn't like
    wizards)
    allows for
    accounts
    contacts
    filters
    labels
    messages
    (though only one at a time, meaning you'll need five passes --
    biggest confusion is that [I just started the "witch"] it wants UAC privileges, and that means it defaults to your admin account when
    selecting the mail program -- choice of Eudora, Outlook, Thunderbird,
    Windows Live [Outlook Express, Windows Mail, and Unix Mailboxes are ghosted/disabled] -- I didn't go further to see if I can change it to
    import from my user account; of course, one could use the admin
    account to change the user account to admin, do the imports, then
    revoke admin from user <G> )

    The names of my Eudora 7.1 mailboxes and folders have special
    characters. Would they get corrupted in an automatic port to Pandora?

    I vaguely recall hitting a problem like this years ago. It may have
    been from an earlier version of Eudora to a later version - or
    something like that. Anyway it didn't go entirely smoothly and I recall
    some names gave trouble.

    Does a migration to Pandora go smoother than that?

    I couldn't say... But Pandora is supposed to be UTF-8 compatible...

    Again -- it was a one time action that I did back with Pandora 1.x; I'm now running 3.x (4.x is out, but I haven't made the major version change payment, so installing 4.x would revert me to demo mode with 1 personality, etc.)
