Eudora 7 replacement
 
Our business needs a replacement for Eudora. It works well enough except that it will not forward or reply with HTML. Nicely formatted orders revert to plain text when trying to forward a copy of the order to a customer. Also needed is the ability to change the subject header (replace generic "Incoming Order" from the cart server with customer name and order number). I've used Thunderbird for years personally but the killer is that I've found no extension that will allow the subject header change, which is absolutely necessary. I have looked at probably a dozen alternatives but nothing with those two simple requirements. Any ideas? The abandoned OSE version doesn't seem to do the subject header thing either.

you may not get a direct replacement for Eudora,
- lots of people used that, years ago, as it had so many useful features.

T/bird is the closest, but if it doesn't do what you need, then . ...

If you are already a member of the Eudora email list, feel free to ignore this. :cool:

IF unaware of the Eudora 7.1 list, here's how to subscribe. Perhaps someone else has found a solution. :)

NOTE: EVERY COMMAND SENT TO THE GAZELLE SERVER *MUST* HAVE THE WORD "GAZELLE" SOMEWHERE IN THE SUBJECT LINE! If you forget to do this, your message will be ignored by the server -- that is, you will not receive a bounce, an error, or any other form of reply. FYI, the word "Gazelle" is case independent -- it may appear as "Gazelle," "gazelle," "gaZEllE," etc. It does not matter where the word appears on the Subject line.

SUBSCRIBING:
<mailto:join-eudora-win@hades.listmoms.net?Subject=Gazelle>

The major current concern seem's be UTF-8 as implemented in WIN 10. Could be the final "Eudora killer". :confused: Seems a pity after all these years from Win 95 forward to Win 8.1 and still going strong.
