About the Name
Why the name “Eudora”?
When looking for a name for this new Post Office Protocol mail program,
we thought immediately of the title of the short story “Why I Live at the P.O.,”
and named the program after the author of the story, Eudora Welty.
“Why I Live at the P.O.” can be found in a collection titled A Curtain of
Green (Harcourt Brace). Ms. Welty’s stories are funny, sad, and fascinating;
she’s surely one of the great American writers.

Getting Started
System Requirements
To use the Eudora Pro electronic mail (e-mail) application (hereafter referred to as
Eudora), you must have the following:
• A Macintosh Plus or later model, with a high-density disk drive.
• Macintosh System 7.0 or later.
• A mail account with an Internet service provider or an Internet-style network
account.
• Access to your mail account via modem or Internet-style network connection.
Note: Some Eudora plug-ins, such as QUALCOMM’s PureVoice™
Player-Recorder, for recording and sending voice messages with
your e-mail, require more advanced configurations, such as a
Power Macintosh and System 7.5 or later, and/or additional
equipment such as a sound card and speakers. Be sure to check the
README for each such Eudora plug-in before you use it. Also see
the section “Using Eudora Plug-ins.”
Drag and Drop Requirements
If you do not have Macintosh® Drag and Drop running on your Macintosh,
certain features may be disabled. Macintosh Drag and Drop is included in System
7.5 and System 7 Pro, but is not in earlier versions of System 7.
Macintosh Drag and Drop requires that Finder 7.1.3 or newer is running for the
Drag and Drop extensions to work properly. Installing the Drag and Drop
extensions with an older Finder has been shown to cause strange behavior, and is
not recommended.
If you are running a system version with a Finder that is older than 7.1.3, you will
be able to drag and drop within the Eudora application. However, you will not be
able to drag between Eudora and other running applications.

The Eudora Version Selection dialog allows you to select from the
following versions:
680x0
This is the smallest version. It runs on any Macintosh, including Power
Macs, but on Power Macintoshes it is not as fast as the PowerPC or
Universal versions.
PowerPC
This version runs only on Power Macintoshes. It does not run on standard
680x0 machines.
Universal (or Fat)
This version requires the most disk space. It runs on any Macintosh, and
on a Power Macintosh runs as fast as the PowerPC version.

Select the destination folder and click Install. The install program begins
installing the items you selected onto the appropriate locations on your
disk.
10. Once the installation is complete, you are prompted to restart your
Macintosh. Click Restart.
The Restart alert
This completes the installation of the Eudora Pro software. To find out how to set
up Eudora so that you can send and receive e-mail, see the section “Opening and
Configuring Eudora.” For details about the files in the master Eudora Folder that
has just been installed in your System Folder (this will hold all your mail and
other important files), as well as the Eudora Pro Folder that you’ve just installed
in the destination dialog above, see their corresponding sections in the Reference
chapter. The README referred to in the Restart alert is contained in your Eudora
Pro Folder.
Note: Throughout most of this manual, the Eudora Pro Folder is referred
to as the Eudora Pro Application Folder. This is the folder that
contains your Eudora application.
Installing Connection Tools
To use Eudora with the Communications Toolbox, the Apple Modem Tool and
Serial Tool must be installed on your Macintosh. To do this, drag the Connection
Tools folder onto your System Folder. The Connection Tools folder is found in
the Dialup folder, within the Extras folder in the Eudora Pro Application Folder.

Getting Started
Opening and Configuring Eudora
After you have installed Eudora, double-click on the application icon to open
Eudora. If you are installing Eudora for the first time, the Getting Started Settings
are displayed.
To send and receive messages, you must have an account on a computer running a
POP (Post Office Protocol) server, and access to a computer running an SMTP
(Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server. Your incoming e-mail messages are
delivered to your POP account, where Eudora picks them up and transfers them to
your Macintosh. Your outgoing messages are sent to the SMTP server to deliver
to your recipients.
You have to provide basic information about your account, servers, and network
connection before you can send and receive messages. To do this, use the Getting
Started Settings (if this is not open, select Settings... from the Special menu and
click on the Getting Started category).
An example Getting Started Settings
In the Real name field, type your real name as you wish it to appear in the From
field of all your outgoing messages. This lets your recipients know who the mail
is from.
QUALCOMM Incorporated

Getting Started
Eudora User Manual
In the POP account field, type your login name for this account, an “@” sign,
and the full name of the computer. For example, if your assigned login name is
“justine,” and the name of the computer where you receive e-mail is
“pop3.qualcomm.com” type “[email protected]” in this field. Your
Eudora administrator can provide you with your login name and your POP server
name if you do not know these.
Your POP account may or may not be the same as your return address, which is
the address at which you normally receive e-mail. If your return address is
different from your POP account, put the return address in the Return address
field.
Specify a connection method. If you are using Eudora via TCP/IP software (e.g., a
direct network connection, SLIP, or PPP), select TCP/IP. If you are using Eudora
without TCP/IP software, select Communications Toolbox, click OK, then
select Communications... from the Special menu and choose the appropriate
modem/serial communications settings. (See “Installing Connection Tools”
above.) If you are not sure what connection method to use, see your Eudora
administrator.
If your POP and SMTP servers are on the same computer, you do not need to
specify an SMTP server. If they are not on the same computer, click on the Hosts
settings category, and in the SMTP field enter the full name of the computer
running the SMTP server.
You are now ready to go. For detailed explanations of all of Eudora’s available
functions, see the appropriate chapters.
Registering Your Copy of Eudora
Depending on the software license you have for Eudora, you may be eligible for
technical support directly from the Eudora Technical Support group. To receive
technical support, you must register your copy of Eudora Pro in accordance with
the terms defined in your license Agreement. If you have a previous version of
Eudora Pro, you need to register this new version.
Note: If you are part of a site license, you do not need to register.
Contact your organization’s e-mail administrator for support.
If you are eligible for technical support, you are prompted to register after you
send the first message with your new version of Eudora Pro.

Note: Holding down the command key and clicking on the title in the title
bar opens a menu containing the mailbox and/or folder(s) that the
message resides in.
Icon Bar
The icon bar consists of a series of objects that are displayed just under the title
bar. It allows you to control the priority of your message, override some of your
default settings for the current message, and send or queue the message. Each icon
can be turned on or off for the current message by clicking on it. A checkmark
symbol next to the icon means the icon is on. The popup menus and icons are
described below.
You can set the defaults for the icon bar in the Sending Mail Settings and the
Attachments Settings.
Priority Popup
This lets you indicate that your message is of higher or lower priority than a
normal message. For most messages, this is just an empty box (normal priority).
For details, see the section “Setting the Message Priority.”
Signature Popup
This lets you automatically append one of your signatures to the end of a
message. For details, see the section “Using Signatures.”
Attachment Type Popup
This lets you select the encoding format for attachments. For details, see the
section “Attaching a File to a Message.”
Quoted-Printable Encoding
If this is on, quoted-printable encoding is used when sending messages or plain
text attachments that contain long lines of text or special characters. It is
recommended that this always be on.
Include Macintosh Information
If this is on, the Macintosh file-type and resources are included in AppleDouble
and AppleSingle attachments. For details, see the section “Attaching a File to a
Message.”
Word Wrap
If this is on, a carriage return is not required at the end of each line. When the
message is sent, the text is automatically “wrapped,” meaning that carriage
returns are inserted at the end of each line of text, with roughly 76 characters per
line.

Keep Copy
If this is on, a copy of each sent message is kept in the Out mailbox. These
messages are saved there until they are deleted or transferred to another mailbox.
Return Receipt
If this is on, a cooperating mailer returns a message to you notifying you when
your outgoing message has been displayed by the recipient. This function does
not work in all cases. For details, see the section “Requesting a Return Receipt.”
Send or Queue
These let you send a message immediately or put it in the queue to send later. If
the Immediate send option in the Sending Mail Settings is on, the button is
labeled Send. If the option is off, the button is labeled Queue. For details, see the
section “Sending or Queueing a Message.”
Other icons may appear on the icon bar that represent the visible means of using
certain installed Eudora plug-ins. For more details, see the section “Using Eudora

Formatting Toolbar
The formatting toolbar, when displayed, appears just under the icon bar. It
consists of a series of popup menus and pushbuttons that let you apply text styles
in the current message.
To display or hide the formatting toolbar in the current message only, select the
Formatting Toolbar command from the Text submenu of the Edit menu. To
display or hide the formatting toolbar in all new messages by default, set the
Show formatting toolbar option on or off in the Fonts & Display Settings or the
Styled Text Settings.
The formatting toolbar is highlighted when the cursor is in the message body; it is
dimmed when the cursor is in the message header or when the composition
window is inactive. You cannot change the style of text you type in the header
fields.
If text in the message body is selected, the popups and buttons apply style changes
to that text. If no text is selected but the cursor is in the message body, then the
popups and font-related buttons apply the styles to text typed beginning at the
insertion point, and the margin-related buttons apply the styles to the paragraph in
which the cursor resides.
From the popups, select the text font, size, and color. Click on the buttons to turn
their styles on or off or step through the choices.

Some brief text indicating the contents of the message. This field can be left blank
(though it is considered a breach of e-mail etiquette to do so).
Cc
The e-mail addresses or nicknames of people to whom a copy of the message is to
be sent. These recipients are displayed in the message header for all recipients to
see. Multiple addresses must be separated by commas. This field can be left
blank. Cc stands for “carbon copy.”
Bcc
The e-mail addresses or nicknames of people to whom a copy of the message is to

This field can also be used to put a copy of the message in one of your mailboxes.
To do this, put the cursor in the Bcc field and select the mailbox from the Fcc
menu (normally the Transfer menu). The name of the mailbox is inserted into the
Bcc field preceded by an italicized “ƒ” and the whole expression placed in quotes,
and when the message is sent, a copy is put in that mailbox. Fcc stands for “folder

Saving a Message for Later Changes
Sometimes it is convenient to save an outgoing message either as a safeguard
when typing long messages, or so you can return to it later to make changes.
To save the current message, select Save from the File menu. To save all of the
messages that you have open, hold down the option key and select Save All from
the File menu.
Saved messages are put in the Out mailbox, and if at least one recipient is entered
in either the To: or the Bcc: field, the saved message is shown with a bullet (•) in
the Status column. If both the To: and the Bcc: fields are empty, the Status
column is blank. The bullet indicates that the message not only has been saved but
is also ready to be sent or queued.
A saved (and sendable) message in the Out mailbox
You can continue making changes to the message or close it. If you try to close an
outgoing message window without saving that version of the message, an alert is
displayed asking if the message should be saved or the changes discarded. If you
select Discard and the message has never been saved, the message is deleted.
Using an Alternate E-mail Account (Multiple Personalities)
You can set up alternate “personalities” in Eudora for each e-mail account you
have. For example, if you have Work, Home, and School e-mail accounts, you
can set up Eudora to send and receive e-mail from each of these accounts, all
without having to quit and restart Eudora. That is, you can check mail for all your
accounts at once or selected accounts at once, and you can do the same for
sending mail. You can even stagger your automatic mail checks.
In the Personalities and Personality Extras Settings you must specify the
following settings for each e-mail account or “personality”: personality name,
POP account, real name, and return address (if different from the POP account).
You can also specify the default domain, SMTP server, default stationery, default
signature (when not using stationery), and Check mail, Leave mail on server,

Send mail, and Authentication functions (for details, see the section “The
Settings Dialog”).
All other settings are effective for all personalities and cannot be changed for
alternate personalities.
Note: Alternate personalities use the connection method of your
dominant personality—your principal e-mail account. We
recommend that you use alternate personalities only with TCP/IP
connections and not with the Communications Toolbox.
If you want to change other settings, or use a separate set of mailboxes for an
account, see the section “Putting Multiple Users on One Macintosh.”
To create an outgoing message from an alternate account—i.e., as an alternate
personality—open a new message window and use one of two methods. Either
select the personality from the Personality submenu under the Message menu’s
Change submenu, or select the personality from the Personality popup in the
From field of the message header.
Personality popup in composition window
In either case, the information in the From field changes to reflect the selected
personality. This generally consists of the real name and POP account for the
personality.
Note: Your Dominant personality is your principal e-mail account: it’s
the personality Eudora uses whenever you don’t specify otherwise,
and it’s also the personality that’s associated with all mail stored
before you began using alternate personalities.

QUALCOMM Incorporated
Eudora User Manual
Sending Messages
The Personality submenu and the From field Personality popup are available only
when you have more than one personality. Alternate personalities must be set up
in the Personalities and Personality Extras Settings before they are recognized by
Eudora.
When you respond to a message, Eudora assigns your response the same
personality under which it received the message. For example, if your Clark Kent
personality receives a message, your replies to that message are sent from your
Clark Kent account.
There are two ways to change the personality of a response. The first is to initiate
the response and then change the personality, from either the Personality submenu
or the Personality popup.
The second way is to change the personality associated with the original message
to which you’re responding. Open that message and change its personality using
the Personality submenu (incoming messages do not have a Personality popup in
the From field). From then on, all of your replies to that message will be sent
from the newly assigned personality.
Here’s an example: Suppose your Clark Kent personality receives a message that
says “Help!” and is really intended for your Superman personality. Initiate a reply
and the personality in the reply is Clark Kent. Change it to Superman from the
submenu or popup, and now that response is sent from your Superman account.
But if you go back to the original message you received as Clark Kent, open it and
change the personality to Superman (from the submenu), now that message is
associated with your Superman account, and all of your replies to that message
from now on will be sent from your Superman account (handy if you’re really the
Man of Steel).
Note: You can also set up a filter to automatically assign a desired
personality to incoming or outgoing messages that satisfy the filter
criteria. See the Make Personality action under the section “Filter
Actions.”
In any new message or reply, the default signature for the selected personality is
used, as set in the Personality Extras Settings—but only if you’re not using
stationery. If you’re using a default stationery file, or if you send or reply to a
message with stationery, then the signature stored in the stationery file will
override the default signature. No matter what signature gets assigned to the new
message or reply when you open or initiate it, you can always override that
signature by changing the signature popup in the composition window. For more
details, see the section “Using Signatures.”

For more information on how to use stationery with alternate personalities, see the
section “Using Stationery Files.”
Using Stationery Files
Stationery files are templates for outgoing messages. If you find yourself
repeatedly sending the same message, save the message as a stationery file and
send it whenever you need to by selecting it from the New Message With or
Reply With submenu on the Message menu. This way you don’t have to copy
and paste text into a message; you can just open a pre-written message and edit it
as necessary.
To create a stationery file, open a new message, put the text you want into the
message body, and fill in the headers as appropriate (subject, copies, etc.). Select
Save As... from the File menu to display the Save As dialog.
Name the file, and select the Stationery option. If you want to keep the file in the
Stationery Folder in your Eudora Folder (within your System Folder), click on the
Go To Stationery Folder button. If not, select any folder you want, and click on
Save to save the file. You can delete the original message.
Creating a stationery file with the Save As dialog
To send a message with a particular stationery, select the stationery file from the
New Message With or Reply With submenu under the Message menu. A
message window is displayed containing the header and body from the stationery
file. If you are replying to a message, the stationery header text is incorporated
32
QUALCOMM Incorporated
Eudora User Manual
Sending Messages
into the reply header text. You can edit and send this new message just as you
would any other message.
To use a particular stationery file for all of your outgoing messages, select a
stationery from the Stationery popup in the Sending Mail Settings (for your
dominant account only) or in the Personality Extras Settings (for any of your
personalities). Most new messages use this file, unless you create the message
using the Redirect, Send Again, New Message With, or Reply With command.
If None is selected in the Stationery popup, no default stationery is used for the
selected account.
To change a stationery file, open a new message with the stationery file, make
your changes, then use the File menu Save As... command again to save your
changes. To delete a stationery file, drag it into the Trash on your desktop.
You can also set up a filter to reply with a stationery message. See the section
“Filtering Messages” for more information.
Note: Settings stored in stationery files override most other settings. For example,
the signature that was set when the stationery file was saved will override any
default signature you select in the Settings dialog. Stationery-dependent settings
appear in the Sending Mail Settings, under the heading Options when not using
stationery, and in the Personality Extras Settings, where the only such setting is
Signature when not using stationery. You can, however, use the icons on the
icon bar of the composition window to override stationery settings.
Also: Exercise caution when using stationery with alternate personalities.
Although stationery settings override most other settings—the signature stored in
a stationery file overrides the default signature of the current personality, for
example—there is one important exception: If you change the personality of the
current message, and that results in a default stationery file being applied, then the
personality stored in the stationery file is ignored. One way to avoid conflicts is
always to do this: when you choose a default stationery file for a personality, in
the Personality Extras Settings, be sure that the personality saved with the
stationery file matches the personality for which you are setting the default. For
more information on alternate personalities, see “Using an Alternate E-mail
Account.”

mostly used to give contact information (telephone, address, etc.). You can have
as many signatures as you want.
Note: Your signature is not displayed in the Eudora message window, but
is added to the end of the message when it is sent.
To create or modify your Standard signature, select Signatures→Standard from

Special menu. A dialog is displayed, asking you what you want to call the new
signature. Enter a name and click on OK to display a signature window. Enter
your signature, save the file, and close the window. Your new signature is now
part of the list of signatures.
To modify an additional signature, select Signatures→[Signature Name] from
the Special menu. The signature window is displayed for the signature name you
specified. Make any changes you want, save the file, and close the window. To
remove a signature, drag the file into the Trash on your desktop. Signatures are

Setting the signature for a particular message
To include a particular signature in all of your outgoing messages, select a
signature in the Sending Mail Settings (for your dominant account only), or in the
Personality Extras Settings (for any of your personalities). You can change this
for a particular message by selecting a different signature or None from the
Signature popup on the icon bar of the composition window.
Note: If you are using a default stationery file, or if you send or reply to
a message with a stationery file, then the signature saved with the
stationery file will override your signature selections in the
Sending Mail Settings and Personality Extras Settings. For more
details, see the section “Using Stationery Files.”
Setting the Message Priority
You can assign a priority to incoming and outgoing messages. The priority is only
for you and your recipients—it does not affect the way mail transport systems
handle the messages.
There are five priority levels available, 1 being the highest (expressed as a doublecaret—see figure), 5 being the lowest (expressed as an inverted double-caret).
Each is represented by a small symbol in the icon bar of a message window and
the Priority column of a message summary. Priority 3 (Normal) is used for
messages that have no assigned priorities, and it is not displayed. The High and
Highest priority symbols are red. You can also use Raise or Lower to set the
priority one level higher or lower, instead of setting a particular priority level.

If you sent yourself a copy of the message, you will or will not see the notification
request depending on whether the Prompt for receipts requested by self option
is turned on or off in the Miscellaneous Settings.
Note: To determine who you are, Eudora uses the “me” nickname, if you
create one for yourself. If you do not have a “me” nickname,
Eudora uses the contents of the POP account and Return address
fields from the Getting Started Settings.
If you receive a message with a request for notification of receipt, you can click
on Notify Sender to send the notification, or you can just ignore it. To remove the
request without sending the notification, hold down the option key and click on
Notify Sender.
These Return Receipt options may or may not work as described, depending on
your recipients’ e-mail software.
Formatting Text
You can use standard text editing options to format the text of your outgoing
messages or text files. The formatting is delivered to your recipients using the
“text/enriched” MIME standard, which means that the formatting your recipient
sees depends on how well their e-mail package supports this standard.
It is important to remember that you cannot completely control what happens on
your recipient’s computer. Depending on the type of computer they are using,
their installed fonts, their settings or preferences, etc., they could end up viewing
something different from what you intended. Also, the formatting changes you
make are sent to your recipient, but your default text settings are not. Any text that
you did not make changes to is displayed using your recipient’s default text.
The Styled Text Settings let you specify how you want to send and receive styled
text. If the Discard style information option is on, you will not be able to format
your text at all (this option is off by default). If you want to send styled text, turn
on the Send style information with mail option, and the But warn me first
option if you want to be alerted before sending it.
Text in outgoing messages and text files can be formatted using the text editing
menu commands. Text in outgoing messages can also be formatted using the
formatting toolbar. The menu commands are described below. See the section
“Formatting Toolbar” for information on using the toolbar.

Text Editing Menu Commands
To format text, use the commands on the Text submenu of the Edit menu. If text
in the message body is selected, the menu command applies the formatting to that
text. If no text is selected but the cursor is in the message body, then the fontrelated commands apply the formatting to the next text you type, and the marginrelated commands apply the formatting to the current paragraph—the paragraph
containing the cursor.
The formatting options are as follows:
Plain, Bold, Italic, Underline
Make the text plain (the default), bold, italic, or underlined.
The keyboard shortcuts are, in order as above,
-T,
-B,
-I, and
-U.
Left, Center, Right
Align the selected or current paragraph to the left, the center, or the right of the
current indent.
Small, Normal, Big, Very Big, Mondo
Make the text a small size, a normal size (the default), a big size, a very big size,
or a very very very big (mondo) size. The increase or decrease is based on the
next or previous standard point size.
Remember that you are viewing the text based on your default settings, but your
recipient’s settings and fonts will be different. For example, if you have a default
font size of 10, and you edit your message text to be a “Mondo” size, it would
display as 18 points to you, but would display as 24 points for a recipient with a
default font size of 14.
Margins—Normal
Make the selected or current paragraph’s left and right margins normal, or flush
with the message window (the default).
Margins—Indent, Indent 2, Indent 3
Make the selected or current paragraph’s left and right margins indented one, two,
or three times.
Margins—Hang Indent, Hang Indent 2, Hang Indent 3
Make the left and right margins indented one, two, or three times for the first line
of the paragraph, and further indent subsequent lines of the paragraph (as
shown with this paragraph).
Color (No Color, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Brown)
Make the text black (the default) or the indicated color.

Other Formatting Options
To copy styled text without taking the styles, hold down the shift key and select
Copy Without Styles from the Edit menu.
If you turn on the Word Wrap icon in the composition window, you do not need
to use carriage returns in the body of your message. When you send the message,
the text is automatically “wrapped,” meaning that carriage returns are inserted at
the end of each line of text, with roughly 76 characters per line. This makes the
message legible on the recipient’s computer.
To manually wrap text, select the text you want, then select Wrap Selection from
the Edit menu. To unwrap text, select the text you want, then hold down the
option key and select Unwrap Selection from the Edit menu.
To copy wrapped text without taking the carriage returns, hold down the option

Attaching a File to a Message
Any Macintosh file can be attached to and sent with a Eudora message. An
attached document functions like a “rider” to the e-mail message, and does not
appear within the message text. Instead, the name of the document and its icon are
displayed automatically in the X-Attachments field of the message header.
To attach a file to a current outgoing message, select Attach Document... from
the Message menu. A standard file dialog is displayed. Once the desired
document is located, select it and click on the Attach button to attach the
document to the message. You can add as many attachments as you want.
You can also drag one or more files from the desktop onto the message window to
attach them.
Note: Use the Attach submenu under the Message menu to attach files
created with Eudora plug-ins. See the section “Using Eudora
Plug-ins” for details.
An outgoing message with an attached document
To detach a document before the message is sent, select the document in the XAttachments field, then press the delete key or select Clear from the Edit menu.
When the message is sent, if the chosen document is not a plain (ASCII) text file,
it is encoded in the selected attachment type. This allows you to send any kind of
document through e-mail, even Macintosh applications.
The MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) standard uses Base64
encoding. It is the newest form of encoding and is a good choice for sending files

to either platform, Macintosh or PC. However, since it is a new standard, only use
this method if you know your recipient is using a mailer that supports MIME.
The attachment types include the following:
AppleDouble
This is best for recipients with MIME-compliant e-mail readers, regardless of
what operating system they are using. For more information on MIME, see
Appendix D.
AppleSingle
This works for recipients with MIME-compliant e-mail readers on Macintoshes.
Do not use this type if your recipient is using a PC.
BinHex
This is best for recipients on a Macintosh with an e-mail reader that is not MIMEcompliant.
Uuencode Data Fork
This is best for recipients using PC or UNIX systems that are not MIMEcompliant.
If you want to include the Macintosh file-type and resources with an AppleDouble
or AppleSingle attachment, be sure the Include Macintosh Information icon is
checked. This can be important in maintaining the integrity of the file for another
Macintosh, but will confuse other operating systems.
If the chosen document is a plain text file, it is not encoded in any special format
before being sent, but the Include Macintosh Information icon can be used to
force the document to be encoded with the chosen encoding.
Sending Attachments to Non-Eudora Users
If you send an attachment to someone who doesn’t use Eudora, the attached file
may be included at the end of the message in the chosen attachment format
(AppleDouble, AppleSingle, BinHex, or Uuencode). Your recipient should save
the message as a file, then decode the file using an application appropriate for the
encoding method you used when you sent the message.

etc., see the Spellswell 7 User Manual. It is located in the Documentation folder
within the Eudora Pro Application Folder.
The spelling checker includes a customizable 93,000+ word dictionary. It can be
used to check for spelling mistakes and typographical errors in message
composition windows, text files, and signature files.
Besides finding ordinary misspellings, the spelling checker has many additional
options for finding errors. For details, see the section “Spelling Options.”
To check your spelling in Eudora, select Check Spelling from the Edit menu.
The spelling checker starts at the beginning of the document. The subject of the
message and the message body are checked, ignoring the parts of the body that are
identified as quoted text. You can also highlight a word or a block of text to check
only that text and not the rest of the message.
If no misspellings are found, the spelling checker quits.
If a misspelled, unknown, or repeated word is found, the Check Spelling dialog is
displayed with the word listed in the Questioned word field. The word is also
highlighted in context at the bottom of the window.
The Check Spelling dialog
The Replace with field displays the dictionary entry alphabetically closest to the
questioned word. If this suggestion is not acceptable, you can change it by
clicking on a word from the list. Or, you can type the correct spelling of the word
directly in the Replace with field. Once the Replace with field contains the

correct entry, click the Replace button. The word in the document is replaced
with the word in the Replace with field. The spell checker then proceeds with the
check.
Note: If you select Check Spelling from the Edit menu and an error dialog
appears telling you that the application (Spellswell) cannot be found, it means that
the link between Eudora and Spellswell has somehow been broken and must be
reestablished. This is rare, but easy to fix. Take these steps: Select Add Word
Service... from the Edit menu. Browse through the dialog and find the Spellswell
application on your hard drive. Double-click on the application, or click once on it
to highlight it and then click Open. Now Spellswell is available again: you can
select Check Spelling from the Edit menu to spell-check your messages.
The Check Spelling Dialog
The Check Spelling dialog allows you to skip a questioned word, replace it, guess
the correct spelling, and add or delete the word to or from your user dictionary.
Each of the fields and buttons is described below.
Questioned word
A word that is not found in the spelling checker dictionary.
Replace with
Replace the questioned word with the word in this field. You can select a word
from the Dictionary/Guesses field, or type a new one.
Dictionary/Guesses
This field is labeled Dictionary when the View suggestions instead of
dictionary first option is off (the default), and Guesses when it is on. (See the
section “Spell Checking Options.”)
Dictionary lists all words that are alphabetically similar to the questioned word.
To display the spelling checker’s suggestions for the correct spelling, click on the
Guess button.
Guesses automatically lists all suggestions for the correct spelling.
Skip (All)
Ignore this occurrence of the questioned word. If you use Skip All, you ignore
this and all subsequent occurrences of the questioned word.
Replace (All)
Replace this occurrence of the questioned word with the word in the Replace
with field. If you use Replace All, you replace this and all subsequent
occurrences of the questioned word.

This option does not apply to spell checking from Eudora. It automatically creates
a backup copy of your original document with “sbk” appended to the file name.
Quit after an Apple Events Word Services spellcheck
Quits the spelling checker once the document is checked.
Spell Checking and Curly Apostrophes
In the Spellswell dictionaries, contraction and possessive forms of words contain
conventional, not curly, apostrophes. Therefore, the spell checker might not
recognize curly apostrophes and may mark the words as incorrect.
It is generally not a good idea to use curly apostrophes in e-mail messages
anyway, since they are often not displayed correctly on your recipient’s computer.

Keeping Copies of Outgoing Messages
There are three ways to keep copies of your outgoing messages.
To put a copy of every outgoing message in the Out mailbox, turn on the Keep
copies of outgoing mail option in the Sending Mail Settings.
To put a copy of the current outgoing message in the Out mailbox, turn on the
Keep Copy icon in the icon bar (there should be a checkmark next to it).
To put a copy of the current outgoing message in a particular mailbox, put the
cursor in the Bcc field of the message and select the mailbox from the Fcc menu
(normally the Transfer menu).
In all these cases, when the messages are sent they are put in the specified
mailbox with an S in the Status column, indicating that the message has been sent.
If none of these options are used, outgoing messages are put into the Trash
mailbox.
Note: You can also set up a filter to save outgoing messages in particular
mailboxes based on information contained in the message. See the
section “Filtering Messages” for more information.
Sending Rejected Messages Again
If for some reason an e-mail message can’t be delivered to a recipient, mail
transport agents return the message to the original sender (you). A message is
typically rejected because of an error in the recipient’s address, although many
other reasons are possible.
The return message usually includes cryptic information that may let you
determine the reason the message was rejected. It also includes the text of the
original message.
You can easily recover the original message, make any corrections, and resend it.
To do this for the current message, select Send Again from the Message menu.
This eliminates the inserted extra text and reformats the message as it originally
appeared. You can then make changes or additions and send the message again.
The Send Again command is also useful for resending saved messages—from
your Out box, for example—and messages you’ve copied to yourself, in order to
save yourself some retyping. You can send the same message to another recipient
to avoid having to retype the whole message, or you can send a different message
to the same recipients to avoid having to retype their addresses in the header.

Checking for Incoming Mail
The POP server is where your mail is received and stored until it is transferred by
Eudora to your Macintosh. You can use several different POP accounts with
Eudora: your main POP account, or dominant personality, is specified in the
Getting Started Settings, and additional POP accounts, or alternate personalities,
are specified in the Personalities Settings.
There are two ways to check your POP server and transfer mail to your
Macintosh: automatically or manually. These are described in the sections below.
You can also control how your mail is transferred from the server, and what
happens to it on the server. For details, see the section “Managing Your Mail on
the POP Server.”
Note: When you check mail, either automatically or manually, the
progress window shows the name of the personality for which mail
is currently being checked.
Checking for Mail Automatically
To set up Eudora to automatically check your POP account(s) and transfer new
mail, first select Settings... from the Special menu and select the Checking Mail
Settings. Turn on the Check for mail every ? minutes option, and enter the
number of minutes that you want between mail checks. This controls your
dominant account. Then, go to the Personalities Settings and for each personality
that you want to be automatically checked, turn on the Check for mail every ?
minutes option and enter the number of minutes between mail checks for that
personality.
Note: 15 minutes is a good minimum interval, because checking mail
more frequently puts an unnecessary load on your POP server. If
the field is empty or is set to 0, mail is not automatically checked.
If automatic checking is set, the Check Mail command under the
File menu displays the next time that an automatic check is
scheduled to occur.

Eudora User Manual
Checking for Mail Manually
You can manually check for new mail at any time by selecting Check Mail from
the File menu. Any account that has the Check mail on manual checks option
turned on in the Personalities Settings is checked. If you haven’t successfully
entered your password since opening the Eudora program, you are prompted for it
(for each account being checked). A progress window is momentarily displayed at
the top of the screen indicating that an attempt to reach your POP account is being
made, and showing the personality name for each POP account being checked.
Note: If automatic checking is on and you manually check for new mail,
the next automatic mail check will happen at the specified number
of minutes after the manual check.
Stopping a Mail Check
If you want to stop a mail check in the middle, click on the Stop button in the
progress window, or press the escape key (esc), or hold down the command key
and type a period (.).
Using Your Password
Each time you open Eudora and check mail for the first time, you need to enter a
password for each POP account that you have. This password is required by the
POP server before it will transfer your mail, so that no one else can get your mail
from the server.
Note: This does not protect your mail once it is on your Macintosh.
Unless a message has been sent with some type of security, it is in
plain-text format, which many applications can read. If you are
interested in securing your Eudora messages on your Macintosh,
you may want to consider a disk driver that can encrypt hard disk
data.
If you need to enter a password, the Password dialog is displayed. Type in your
password and click OK. If you make a mistake before clicking OK, simply
backspace and re-enter the password correctly.

Entering your password
Note: Your POP account password is case-sensitive, so the uppercase
and lowercase characters must be typed in exactly. Be sure that
Caps Lock is off.
If your password is rejected, an error message is displayed indicating that you
have entered the wrong password. Select Check Mail from the File menu to
redisplay the password dialog.
As long as Eudora is running, it remembers all of your passwords. If you don’t
want it to remember (if, for example, you are away from your Macintosh), select
Forget Password(s) from the Special menu. The next time you check mail for
any account, you are prompted for your password again.
You can also make Eudora remember all of your passwords from one session to
the next, which means you never have to enter passwords again, even if you quit
and restart Eudora. You only want to do this if your Macintosh is in a secure
location, where there is no possible chance of someone else having access to it.
To use this option, turn on Save password in the Checking Mail Settings.
Changing Your Password
To change the password for one of your personalities, select the personality from
the Change Password submenu under the Special menu. If you have only one
password-controlled POP account, select the Change Password... command from
the Special menu.
You are prompted to enter your old password once, and your new password twice.
Depending on the server you are using, the password can be up to 30 characters,
but normally it is only 7 or 8.

Note: This only works if the POP server is running a compatible
password-change server. For information about these servers, see
Appendix A.
When you choose a new password, try not to use real words, names, dates,
familiar acronyms, etc. Some servers require at least one number or symbol in
your password, and you may want to do that even if it is not required.
Receiving New Mail
When Eudora does a mail check, you can be notified of new mail in one or all of
the following ways: an alert dialog, a flashing mail icon in the menu bar, the
opening of the mailboxes to which new mail is delivered, and a special “New
Mail” sound. These options are turned on or off in the Getting Attention Settings.
When you receive notice that new mail has arrived, select Eudora from the
applications menu. Mail usually arrives in the In mailbox (unless you are using
filters to transfer messages). If the In mailbox is not already open, select In from
the Mailbox menu. The messages are listed in the order they are received, with
the most recent message listed last. Unread messages are designated by a bullet (•)
in the Status column of the message summary.
Unread messages in the In mailbox
Double-click anywhere on a message summary to open the message. Incoming
messages are saved indefinitely in the In mailbox (or the mailbox they are filtered
into) until they are deleted or transferred to another mailbox.

Receiving Attachments
Unless you have specified a particular folder for your incoming attachments (see
the section “Specifying an Attachment Folder”), they are automatically decoded
and saved in the Attachments Folder in your Eudora Folder (which is in your

To edit an incoming message, click on the Pencil icon to turn it on, then edit the
message body. When you are done, save your changes and close the message.
To edit the subject of an incoming message, open the message (the Pencil icon
can be on or off) and edit the subject in the icon bar, not the subject in the
message body. When you are done, click somewhere else in the message, or close
it. The new subject is displayed in the message summary. The contents of the
Subject field of the message header remain unchanged.
Note: If you reply to the message, the original subject is used for the
reply, not your changed subject. This gives you the freedom to put
information useful to you into the summary, without fear of your
private notes being revealed to your correspondents.
Editing the subject of an incoming message
Using Active URLs
Any string of text that Eudora recognizes as a “hot link,” also known as a URL
(Uniform Resource Locator: http, ftp, gopher, ph, finger, etc.), is active. Active
URLs are normally highlighted in blue text and underlined, and are often enclosed
by less-than and greater-than signs, “<>.” You can hold down the command key
and click on a URL (or just double-click on it) to open a World Wide Web
location, transfer a file, do a gopher search, use the finger tool, etc.
To specify what Internet application you want to use for a URL type, hold down
the option key and double-click on the URL. A standard file dialog is displayed.
Select the application you want, then click on Open. The application is opened
64
QUALCOMM Incorporated
Eudora User Manual
Receiving Messages
and goes to the selected URL. The next time you select a URL of that type, the
same application is automatically used.
Sometimes users will send you messages containing hot links that are poorly
formatted, so that Eudora won’t recognize them as URLs. Eudora won’t highlight
these text strings in blue and underline, but you can still use them as active links.
Simply select the entire string of text that you think is a hot link, and choose
Open Selection from the File menu, or hold down the command key and click on
the selection.
We recommend that you encourage your correspondents to enclose hot links in
angle brackets, < >, like this: <http://www.eudora.com/new.html>. This will
help Eudora and other software to recognize the hot link.
Viewing HTML Text
Sometimes you may receive Web pages, or other HTML-formatted text, in e-mail
messages. Eudora displays these messages as best it can, but if you want to
display them in your World Wide Web browser, you can do so right from Eudora.
Just open the message, or highlight its message summary in the mailbox window,
and select Open in Browser from the File menu. Eudora uses the browser you
have selected for use with active HTML hot links (see the section “Using Active
URLs”). If you haven’t yet selected a browser for HTML, Eudora will ask you to
choose one.
Managing Your Mail on the POP Server
During a mail check, your incoming messages are normally transferred from your
account on the POP server to your Macintosh, and then deleted from the POP
server. But this can be awkward if you want to read mail from two or more
Macintoshes, and keep your mail organized at the same time.
There are several options that you can use to control your mail transfers and the
storage on the server. Some of these options are available in the Checking Mail
Settings, and some are available in the Mail Transfer Options dialog.
Leaving Mail on the Server
To transfer all of your new messages from the POP server to the Macintosh you
are on, and also leave copies of those messages on the server, turn on the Leave
on server for ? days option in the Checking Mail Settings. You can set the
number of days the copies should be kept, or leave the field blank to store the
copies indefinitely.
QUALCOMM Incorporated
65
Receiving Messages
Eudora User Manual
Note: The Leave mail on server option can also be set for each alternate
personality you have. To do this, use the Personalities Settings.
At the next mail check from that Macintosh, Eudora ignores the copies of those
previously read messages and looks for new ones. However, if you check mail
from another computer, those messages are treated as new and are transferred to
that computer.
Note: The Leave on server options should be used with care, since they
can result in a buildup of messages on the POP servers.
Deleting a Message from the Server
To delete a message that has been left on the server (without retrieving it again),
turn on the Trash icon in the message’s icon bar or set the message summary’s
server action to Delete, then check mail again. Or, use the Delete all messages
that have been retrieved option in the Mail Transfer Options dialog (described
in the section “Checking for Mail with Special Server Instructions”).
Skipping Messages Over a Certain Size
To stop Eudora from transferring incoming messages that are too large, turn on
the Skip messages over ? K option in the Checking Mail Settings, and specify a
size. Only the first few lines of the messages that exceed that size are transferred,
with a note at the bottom stating that the whole message has not been transferred.
If you decide you want to transfer the whole message, click on the Fetch icon in
the incoming message window, or select the Fetch server action in the message
summary, then check mail again. You can also use the Trash icon or the Fetch &
Delete server action so that the message is deleted from the server after
transferring it.
If you decide you don’t want the message and want to delete it from the server,
click on the Trash icon in the incoming message window, or select the Delete
server action in the message summary, then check mail again.
Checking for Mail with Special Server Instructions
To check your mail and give special transfer and storage instructions to the server,
hold down the option key and select Check Mail Specially... from the File menu.
The Mail Transfer Options dialog is displayed. Set the options you want and
click on the OK button to continue checking for mail.

The Anatomy of a Mailbox
Mailbox windows are one of the most important elements of Eudora. They
contain all of your incoming and outgoing message summaries.
A mailbox window
Message Summaries
Each line in a mailbox window represents a message and is called a message
summary. To select one or more message summaries, use one of the following
options:
• To select one summary, click on it.
• To select two summaries and all the summaries between them, click on a
summary, hold down the shift key, and click on another summary.
• To make “disjointed” selections, hold down the command key and click on
summaries.
• To select all the summaries that are from or to the same person, hold down the
option key and click on a summary. The summaries are grouped as well as
selected.
• To select a summary that best matches the letters you type, type the first few
letters of a sender or recipient’s name (or the subject, if this mailbox is
currently sorted by subject).
Each message summary is divided into columns: Status, Priority, Attachments,
Label, Sender/Recipient, Date, Size, Server Action, and Subject. You can show or
hide these columns using the Mailbox Columns Settings.
A message’s Status, Priority, Label, and Server Action can be changed directly in
the mailbox window. To do this, click on the message summary column you want
to change. The pointer displays as the popup menu symbol ( ). Hold down the
mouse button and select an option from the popup menu.

The Status Column
This column displays the message status, which is one of the following:
•
<blank>
R
F
D
S
Q
T
-
The message has not been read (all mailboxes except Out), or is
queueable/sendable but has not been queued or sent (Out mailbox

The message has been sent (outgoing messages only).
The message is queued to be sent (outgoing messages only).
The message is queued to be sent at a specified time (outgoing
messages only).
The message was transferred from the Out mailbox before being
sent.
The Priority Column
This column displays the message priority. You can use the popup to set a
particular priority, or to raise or lower the priority.
Highest priority.

Eudora User Manual
For more information on message priorities, see the section “Setting the Message

The Attachments Column
This column displays the attachment icon ( ) if a message has attached
documents.
The Label Column
This column displays the message label. Labels are assigned to incoming
messages by the recipient, either manually or automatically using filters (see the
section “Filtering Messages”). When a message summary is assigned a label, the
entire summary changes color to match the label color.
Note: Label colors and titles are assigned using the Macintosh Label
control panel or the Labels Settings.
The Sender/Recipient Column
This column shows the sender of the message (for incoming messages) or the
intended recipients (for outgoing messages).
To select all the message summaries from a particular sender or recipient, hold
down the option key and click on one of the message summaries from that person.
The summaries are grouped as well as selected. To ungroup them, perform a sort
operation.
Note: Bugs in some POP servers/mail transport systems cause Eudora to
display the sender of incoming messages as [email protected]???. This is
because the required From: header is missing. If you encounter
such a message, see your e-mail administrator. Administrators can
obtain a copy of qpopper from ftp.eudora.com to correct the
problem (see Appendix A).
The Date Column
This column displays the date and time the message was composed, or, for timed
outgoing messages, the date and time the message is scheduled to be sent. Eudora
uses two methods of displaying date information in mailbox windows, Agesensitive and Fixed (this is set in the Date Display Settings). If Age-sensitive is
selected, mail that arrives today has a time stamp, mail that arrived within the last
six calendar days is stamped with the day of the week, and mail that arrived prior
to the previous week is stamped with the date. If Fixed is selected, all mail
messages are stamped with the date and time, with the date formatted according to
the short date format in current use by your Macintosh and the time formatted
according to the current time format.

“Editing Incoming Messages”).
Displaying and Resizing Columns
To specify which columns you want to be displayed in your mailboxes, select
Settings... from the Special menu, click on Mailbox Columns and be sure the
columns you want to see are on. You can also turn the separator lines on and off.
To resize a column in a mailbox window, move the mouse pointer until it is over

Using the Mailbox Size Display
In the lower left corner of each mailbox window, three numbers show the size
information for that mailbox. The first is the number of messages in the mailbox;
the second is the total amount of space those messages require; the third is the
amount of disk space that is wasted with the mailbox.
A mailbox with 5 messages that takes up 3K and wastes 4K of disk space
Wasted space is created when messages are deleted from a mailbox. This wasted
space is automatically removed when the amount of wasted space in the mailbox
is greater than the amount of space the messages in the mailbox use, or if the
amount of space wasted in the mailbox is greater than 5% of the free space on the
volume that contains it.
To manually clean up the wasted space in a mailbox, hold down the command key
and click on the mailbox’s size display. Or, to clean up all your mailboxes, hold
down the option and command keys and click on any mailbox size display.
Using the Title Bar Popup Menu
In an open message or mailbox window, hold down the command key and click
on the title in the title bar. A popup menu appears showing the hierarchy of
mailboxes and folders containing that message or mailbox.
If you select a mailbox from the menu, the mailbox window opens for that
mailbox. If you select a folder, the Mailboxes window opens and the folder is
highlighted in the window.
Creating Mailboxes and Folders
Eudora lets you create mailboxes to put messages in, and folders to put mailboxes
(or more folders) in.
There are three ways to create mailboxes and folders:
• Using the New... option from the Mailbox menu and folder submenus.
• Using the Mailboxes window from the Special menu (see the section “Using
the Mailboxes Window”). The Mailboxes window is most useful if you want to
create several mailboxes at one time.

Deleting a Message
As a safeguard against inadvertent deletions, two steps are used to delete a
message from your Macintosh: first you put the message in the Trash, then you
empty the Trash.
To put a message in the Trash, select the message, then select Delete from the
Message menu, or select Trash from the Transfer menu, or press the delete key.
The message is transferred to the Trash mailbox.
To delete the messages in the Trash mailbox (removing them permanently from
your Macintosh), select Empty Trash from the Special menu.
To delete a message permanently without sending it to the Trash first, select the
message, hold down the shift and option keys, and select Nuke from the Message
menu (or use any of the deleting options).
Warning: You cannot undo a Nuke operation!
If you Nuke a message that has an attachment, the attachment is moved to the
Trash on your desktop.
You can set up Eudora to warn you if you try to delete unread, queued, or unsent
messages. To do this, use the Extra Warnings Settings to turn on those options.
Quitting Eudora empties the contents of the Trash mailbox when the Empty
Trash on Quit option in the Miscellaneous Settings is turned on. Finally, if you
want to delete just a few messages from the Trash mailbox, select them, then
select Delete from the Message menu or press the delete key. Deleting a message
from the Trash removes it completely.
Automatically Deleting Attachments
When you delete messages, you can have their attachments automatically deleted.
To do this, turn on the Trash attachments with messages option in the
Attachments Settings, and be sure the attachments are still in the Attachments
Folder (or the folder you have specified for attachments). If you have this option
on and want to delete a message but save its attachment, move the attachment into
another folder before deleting the message.

Transferring Messages
You can transfer messages to any of your mailboxes. There are several ways to do
this: use the Transfer menu, drag a message summary to an open mailbox, drag
an open message’s Tow Truck to an open mailbox, drag a message to a mailbox
button on the main toolbar, or drag a message to a mailbox icon in the Mailboxes
window, if it is open on your desktop (see “Using the Mailboxes Window”).
To put a copy of a message in another mailbox (instead of transferring the
message), hold down the option key and use one of the transfer options above.
This is useful if you want to file a message in more than one mailbox.
If you try to transfer a message to the Out mailbox, an alert is displayed informing
you that some header information may be removed from the message during
transfer. Click Yes to transfer the message.
Note: You can undo mailbox transfers using the Undo command under
the Edit menu.
Using the Transfer Menu
The Transfer menu is one way to transfer messages among your mailboxes. With
a current message open, or message summaries selected, select a mailbox from the
Transfer menu. The messages are transferred from their previous mailbox to the
mailbox you selected.
Dragging Messages
You can drag messages from one mailbox to another using the message
summaries or the Tow Truck icon in an open window.
To drag a message summary to another mailbox, select the message summary (or
summaries), place the cursor over the summary, and hold down the mouse button.
The cross pointer will change to an arrow. Drag the summary into any open
mailbox window, or onto a main toolbar mailbox button you have created (see the
section “Customizing the Main Toolbar”), or onto a mailbox icon in the
Mailboxes window, if it is open on your desktop (see the section “Using the

Filtering Messages
Many of the e-mail management functions in Eudora can be done automatically
using filters. For example, you can automatically reply to a request for
information, transfer all the messages from your children into a Personal mailbox,
and label all the messages from your customers as “Hot.”
To open the Filters window, select Filters from the Special menu. The Filters
window is displayed, and any filters you have created are listed on the left.
The Filters window with a sample filter
To create or modify a filter, first click on the New button or select an existing
filter.
Second, select the options for how you want the filter to be used: as an automatic
filter to be invoked on any Incoming and/or Outgoing mail, and as a Manual
filter that can be invoked when you select Filter Messages from the Special
menu. Any combination of these options works.
Third, define the criteria for the filter: use the header item popups and the text
fields to specify which header items should include a particular string of text. You
can define two related terms for the criteria so that your filter is as specific as
possible (see the section “Filter Criteria”).
82
QUALCOMM Incorporated
Eudora User Manual
Organizing Your Messages
Fourth, define the action to be taken on messages that fit the criteria (see the
section “Filter Actions”) and save the filters.
When the filters are invoked (automatically or manually), each message is
matched against each filter, and messages that meet a filter’s criteria are acted on
as specified until a Transfer To or Skip Rest action is done. At that point, the
next message is filtered.
Note: Filters are automatically named based on the criteria for the filter.
They are invoked in order from top to bottom, and you can reorder them by dragging a filter up or down in the list.
To print your filters, open the Filters window and select Print... from the File
menu. The standard Print dialog is displayed so that you can make your print
selections.
You can change the width of the filters list to create more or less space for your
list. To do this, put the arrow over the vertical dividing line to the right of the list,
until the pointer changes to a resize cursor ( ), then hold down the mouse button
and drag the line to the left or right.
Filter Criteria (the Match Area)
Each filter can use one or two “terms” as its criteria, connecting them as
appropriate with the conjunction popup.
Use the Header field to specify which message header items you want the filter to
search. You can select an option from the popup menu or enter one yourself (this
is helpful if you want to search for a header item that does not appear on the
menu, such as X-Priority). The selections are as follows:
• To
• Cc
• From
• Subject
• Reply-To
• «Any Recipient»
• «Any Header»
• «Body»
QUALCOMM Incorporated
83
Organizing Your Messages
Eudora User Manual
• «Personality»
The «Any Recipient» option searches all possible recipient items (To, Cc, Bcc);
the «Any Header» option searches all message headers (including hidden headers
that are shown with the BLAH BLAH BLAH option); the «Body» option
searches the message body; and the «Personality» option searches the name of the
personality associated with the message.
Use the Match Type popup to control how the header item is matched with the
text string in the text field. The match options are:
contains or does not contain
If the specified header item contains or does not contain the text string, filter the
message.
is or is not
If the specified header item is or is not a complete match of the text string, filter
the message.
starts with or ends with
If the specified header item starts with or ends with the text string, filter the
message. The starts with item refers to the first non-whitespace character after
the colon, so any spaces after the colon are ignored.
appears or does not appear
If the header item appears or does not appear in the message, filter the message
(the text field is ignored). This is useful for filtering messages based only on the
types of fields they contain.
intersects nickname
If the text string is included in a nickname (whether it is a full address or a
nickname within the nickname), filter the message.
Use the Text fields to specify the text strings that the filter is searching for.
Note: It is recommended that the contents of this field be kept as specific
and brief as possible. The greater the complexity, the less the
likelihood of a match.
Note: Be sure not to enter a header label in the Text field as part of the
text string (e.g., To:, From:, Bcc:). For example, to filter all
messages from Justine, do not enter From: Justine in the Text
field. Rather, select From: in the Header field, and enter simply
Justine in the Text field (choosing, for example, contains from the

Sample Match Area in Filters window
Use the Conjunction popup to link the two terms. The conjunction options are:
ignore
Ignore the second term; if the message matches the first term, filter the message.
and
If the message matches both the first and second terms, filter it.
or
If the message matches either term, filter it.
unless
If the message matches the first term, filter it unless the message also matches the
second term, in which case do not filter it. (This lets you exclude certain
variations of the first term.)
Filter Actions
All messages that match the filter criteria are acted on as specified with the
Actions popups. Each filter can do up to five things to a message that matches the
criteria. You can use the same action twice if it does not directly affect the
original message (for example, Copy To can be used twice, but not Transfer To).
The Actions options are as follows:
None
No action.
Make Status
Assigns the selected status to messages.

Make Priority
Assigns the selected priority level to messages. If you select a set level, messages
are set to that priority. If you select Raise or Lower, messages are raised or
lowered one priority level based on their pre-filter level.
Make Label
Assigns the selected label to messages. Label colors and names are set in the
Macintosh Labels control panel and the Eudora Labels Settings.
Make Personality
Assigns the selected personality to messages. For outgoing messages, the message
is sent from the assigned personality. For incoming messages, all your responses
to the message will be from the assigned personality until you change the
personality associated with the incoming message or your response. For more
information, see the section “Using an Alternate E-mail Account.”
Make Subject
Assigns the new subject to messages. If you choose this option, the entire subject
of the message is replaced with the new subject. Use the “&” symbol to stand for
the old subject if you want to add the new subject to the old subject. For example,
entering New Subject [was &] results in New Subject [was Old Subject].
Play Sound
Plays the selected sound when messages are received.
Open
Opens the Mailbox and/or Message when a message is received. If you set a
previous action to filter messages into a mailbox, then that mailbox is opened.
Print
Prints one copy of each message.
Notify User
Notifies you As normal and/or In report when messages are received. The As
normal option notifies you based on the options you have selected in the Getting
Attention Settings. The In report option notifies you by displaying a filter report
that details what filter actions have been done.
Forward To
Forwards messages to the e-mail address given. Forwarded messages are placed in
the queue in the Out mailbox, and sent the next time you send queued messages.
Redirect To
Redirects messages to the e-mail address given. Redirected messages are placed in
the queue in the Out mailbox, and sent the next time you send queued messages.

Reply With
Replies to messages with the selected stationery message. Replies are placed in
the queue in the Out mailbox and sent the next time you send queued messages.
One typical use of this action is to reply to specific senders with stationery telling
them that you’re on vacation: “I’m out till the 10th. I’ll reply to your message
when I get back.” For more details, see the section “Using Stationery Files.”
Server Options
Sets the message’s server action to Fetch and/or Delete (see the section
“Managing Your Mail on the POP Server”).
Copy To
Copies messages to the selected mailbox.
Transfer To
Transfers messages to the selected mailbox.
Skip Rest
Stops filtering for the message (the message is not matched to the rest of the
filters in the filter list).
The Last used field displays the date the filter was last used on a message. This
helps you identify filters that are no longer useful and can be safely deleted.

Eudora User Manual
Sorting Messages Within Mailboxes
The message summaries in mailboxes are automatically sorted by date, in
ascending order (the newest messages at the bottom of the mailbox). To change
this, select the appropriate command from the Sort submenu under the Special
menu. Or, click on any of the column headings to sort by that column.
The Sort submenu
This sorting method is “sticky,” meaning that each sort is based on the previous
state of the mailbox. For example, if a mailbox is sorted by date, and then you sort
by sender, the messages are grouped by sender and each group is in order by date.
You can change this by holding down the shift key and sorting by another
column. The original sort remains intact, but it is now grouped with the new
selection. For example, if the mailbox is sorted by sender with each group of
messages in order by date, and then you hold down the shift key and sort by size,
the messages are still grouped by sender but the groups are now in order by size.
To sort in descending order, hold down the option key and select a sort option.
The Sort submenu changes to Sort Descending.
To keep messages with the same subject together all the time, select the Group
Subjects option from the Sort submenu. If this is checked, messages with the
88
QUALCOMM Incorporated
Eudora User Manual
Organizing Your Messages
same subject are kept together in the mailbox regardless of whether you sort by
date, sender, etc. A bullet next to the Subject column heading tells you that the
Group Subjects option is active.
Sticky sorting places an underline under the column heading for the sorted
column. To remove this underline (and turn off the sticky sort), repeat the sort for
the same column, or just click on the column heading again. Incoming mail that
arrives in a mailbox with an underlined column heading is automatically sorted by
that column, subject to the restrictions above. For example, if a mailbox is sorted
by sender and a new message comes in from Justine, it will be grouped with other
messages from Justine.
To always put just-arrived mail at the bottom of your mailbox, be sure the Date
column heading is not underlined. To sort by date and time, be sure Date is
underlined. For example, a message dated yesterday at 10:00am arrived today at
11:00pm. If Date is underlined, that message is way back in your mailbox with
yesterday morning’s mail.
Note: Sometimes sorting by Date can be incorrect. This usually happens
if the messages have incorrectly formatted date fields, or unknown
or incorrect time zones.
Note: Double-clicking on a column heading is equivalent to the Sort at
once command that appeared in earlier versions of Eudora.
Finding Text Within Messages
You can find a word or a string of text anywhere in your Eudora messages, your
Address Book, or your Filters. To do this, select Find from the Special menu, and
Find... from the submenu. The Find dialog is displayed.
The Find dialog with a sample search
Enter the word or string of text that you want to find in the Find field. Or, if you
don’t want to type in the text, you can highlight the text in an existing message,
QUALCOMM Incorporated
89
Organizing Your Messages
Eudora User Manual
then select Enter Selection from the Find submenu. The selected text is
automatically inserted in the Find field of the Find dialog.
If you need to specify how the text should appear, use the Whole word and
Match case options:
Whole word
If this option is on, the text is found only if it appears by itself and is not part of
another word. For example, if the text is “info” then the word “information” will
be passed over.
Match case
If this option is on, exact matches of the text are found, taking the capitalization
into account.
When the Find field is filled in and the appropriate options are set, you can use
one of two functions in the dialog to find the text: Find and Search. Use the Find
button to find instances of the text in just the current open message, or use any of
the Search buttons to find instances of the text by searching mailboxes or mail
folders.
Finding Text in the Current Open Message
To find text in the current message, verify that the Find field and options are
filled in correctly, then click the Find button (or select the Find Again command
from the Find submenu) to find the text.
Eudora begins looking for the text at the insertion point (where the cursor is) in
the message. If a match is found, the matching text is highlighted in the open
message. If no match is found, the not found alert is displayed.
To find the next occurrence of the text in the current message, click the Find
button in the Find dialog, or select the Find Again command from the Find
submenu.
To stop Eudora while it is looking for text, press the escape key (esc), or hold
down the command key and type a period (.).
Searching for Text in Messages, Mailboxes, and Folders
To search for text in a certain mailbox or mail folder, first verify that the Find
field and options are filled in correctly. Then use the Starting field to specify
where you want the search to start.
Your folders and mailboxes are searched in order as they appear in your Mailbox
menu, and your messages are searched in order as they appear in your mailboxes.

Eudora User Manual
Organizing Your Messages
The display area tells you where you are in that order using the following format:
Folder:Mailbox:Message headers (if a mailbox is directly under the Eudora
Folder, the folder name is not shown).
To change where you are in your mailboxes and messages, you can use the arrows
in the Starting field or the Choose... button:
Go to the first mailbox that has messages in it, and to the first message in
that mailbox.
Go back to the previous mailbox that has messages in it, and to the first
message in that mailbox.
Go back one message, regardless of what mailbox it is in.
Go forward one message, regardless of what mailbox it is in.
Go forward to the next mailbox that has messages in it, and to the first
message in that mailbox.
Use the Choose... button to select a mailbox from the Mailbox menu and go to
the top of the mailbox you selected.
Once you’ve specified where the search should start, you can specify how to
search:
Summaries only
If this is checked, only the sender and subject fields of message summaries are
searched. The search is much faster when this option is checked.
Search Mailbox
Search all messages in the mailbox shown in the display area.
Search Mailfolder
Search all messages in the folder shown in the display area (even if there are
multiple mailboxes).
Search To End
Start at the message shown in the display area and search the rest of the messages
in the current and subsequent mailboxes and mail folders.

Customizing the Main Toolbar
The Main Toolbar is a group of buttons giving you easy access to your frequently
used Eudora functions.
The Main Toolbar
You can set the buttons to correspond to your function keys (the F keys on an
extended keyboard), and you can create new buttons for most Eudora commands.
Buttons on the main toolbar are context-sensitive: they are highlighted if they can
be used for the current task, and are dimmed if they cannot. For example: if an
incoming message is currently open or selected in a mailbox, the Reply toolbar
button is highlighted because you can reply to the message. If no incoming
message is open or selected, the Reply button is dimmed because there’s no
message to reply to. For toolbar buttons that correspond to menu commands, the
state of the button—highlighted or dimmed—matches the state of its associated
menu command.
To add a new button to the main toolbar, hold down the command key and put the
cursor between two buttons or at either end of the toolbar, depending on where
you want the new button to go; when the arrow changes to a splitter cursor ( ),
click on it. The Toolbar Button Creation dialog is displayed, prompting you to
choose a menu item or enter a key combination. This can be almost anything you
would do with Eudora, including using modifier keys with the command. When
you are done, the button is added to the toolbar, and named appropriately. If you
change your mind, click Remove Button or Cancel.

Using Eudora Plug-ins
Eudora plug-ins are software programs and resources developed by
QUALCOMM Incorporated, and by third-party vendors in conjunction with
QUALCOMM, to extend the standard Eudora program.
There are two kinds of Eudora plug-ins.
Message plug-ins are system extension files whose icons often look like puzzle
pieces. Resource plug-ins are system preference files whose icons often look like
a stamped envelope with two arrows on it.
Sample message plug-in (left) and resource plug-in (right)
The Eudora software includes both message and resource plug-ins, described
further below.
Additionally, you can purchase third-party Eudora plug-ins. For information on
plug-in software that’s available for use with Eudora, visit the World Wide Web
site <http://www.eudora.com>, or send e-mail to <[email protected]>.
To use Eudora plug-ins, you must install them. Installation instructions appear
below.
If you would like to write a Eudora message plug-in, you can obtain the Software
Developer’s Kit (SDK) for the Extended Messaging Services Application
Programming Interface (EMSAPI) by anonymous ftp at ftp.eudora.com.
Plug-in Software That Comes with Eudora
When you install Eudora, the following three message plug-ins are automatically
installed in the Eudora Stuff folder contained in your Eudora Pro Application
Folder (the folder containing your Eudora application). These message plug-ins
operate on text in open outgoing and incoming messages:
• Rot13 Text — Scrambles message text by rotating the letters 13 places through
the alphabet. Your recipient must apply Rot13 at the receiving end in order to
unscramble the text and read the message.
• Space & Tab Converter — Converts multiple spaces in message text to tabs,
or vice versa.
QUALCOMM Incorporated
109
Reference
Eudora User Manual
• Upper/Lower Text — Converts message text to either all upper case, all lower
case, initial word capitals, or initial sentence capitals.
When you start Eudora, these conversion services appear on the Message Plugins submenu under the Edit menu. To use one of the services, open an outgoing
or incoming message, then select the service from the Message Plug-ins
submenu. The conversion is performed on the entire text in the message. If text is
selected in the message when you choose the service, the conversion is performed
only on that text.
For more information on these three message plug-ins, see their READMEs in the
Eudora Stuff folder.
Also when you install Eudora, a number of resource plug-ins are automatically
placed in the Plugins folder that resides under the Extras folder, in your Eudora
Pro Application Folder. These resource plug-ins, however, are not installed. To
use them, you must install them—see the installation instructions below.
For more information on these resource plug-ins, see the section “The Eudora Pro
Application Folder,” and also see the README in the Plugins folder itself.
Installing and Using Eudora Plug-ins
The procedure for installing a message plug-in and a resource plug-in is the same:
First, quit Eudora. Next, drag the message or resource plug-in file into the
Eudora Stuff folder contained in the Eudora Pro Application Folder. When you
next start Eudora, the message or resource plug-in will become available as
described below.
Note: You can also install both message and resource plug-ins in the
Eudora Pro Application Folder itself, or whatever folder you keep
the Eudora application in. Further, message plug-ins can be
installed in your system Extensions folder, and resource plug-ins
can be installed in your system Preferences folder, or in the
Eudora Folder in your System Folder.
Message plug-ins, once installed, become available in one of the following places
in Eudora, depending on the kind of function they perform:
• As commands on the Message Plug-ins submenu, under the Edit menu
• As icons on the icon bar of outgoing message windows or in the message body
of incoming message windows
• As commands on the Attach submenu, under the Message menu
110
QUALCOMM Incorporated
Eudora User Manual
Reference
• As commands at the bottom of the Special menu
• Some message plug-ins may not be available through the menus or in message
windows because they perform their functions automatically, behind the scenes
Resource plug-ins, once installed, can appear in a variety of places within Eudora,
including in a dialog, a menu, a string of text, or a picture. A resource plug-in may
also operate behind the scenes without your input.
To change the settings for those installed message plug-ins that have settings,
select the message plug-in from the Plug-in Settings submenu under the Special
menu.
To see which message plug-ins are currently installed, select About Message
Plug-ins... from the Apple Menu (generally in the upper left corner of your
screen, with the Apple logo). The dialog that displays shows all installed message
plug-ins including those not visible on menus or as icons. Click OK to close the
dialog.
To remove a message or resource plug-in, simply quit Eudora and drag the plugin file out of your Eudora Stuff folder or the other folder in which you installed
it. The next time you start Eudora, the Eudora plug-in will no longer appear in its
former location in the menu system or in windows or dialogs.
Word Services
Eudora lets you add word services to the Eudora editor for use with outgoing
messages. However, only applications that support the Word Services Suite can
be used.
To add a word service to Eudora, select Add Word Service... from the Edit
menu. The Choose a “Word Services” application dialog is displayed.
First, locate the application and single-click on it to highlight it. Then click Open.
The word service is added to the Edit menu. To use this service for a current
outgoing message, select it from the Edit menu.
Printing
You can print the current message or messages, a plain text window, selected text
within a message or text window, the contents of the Directory Services window,
and your filters, signatures, and Address Book entries. Eudora automatically
prints headers and footers on each page, giving the window title, page number,
and your return address.
QUALCOMM Incorporated
111
Reference
Eudora User Manual
To print the current message or item, select Print... from the File menu.
To print just the selected text, hold down the shift key and select Print
Selection... from the File menu.
To print one copy and bypass the standard Print dialog, select Print One Copy
from the File menu.
Putting Multiple Users on One Macintosh
If you have a multiple-user license for Eudora, you can set it up so that more than
one user can be on a single Macintosh. This also works if you have multiple
e-mail accounts but you don’t want to have alternate personalities set up and using
the same set of mailboxes, or if you want to store your mail in a folder other than
your System Folder. You will need to quit and restart Eudora to switch users.
To have multiple users on one Macintosh, for each user make a copy of the
Eudora Folder that resides in the System Folder. The copies can be named
whatever the users want, and put anywhere they want, including on a floppy disk
or network volume.
Each user can open Eudora by double-clicking on the Eudora Settings file within
their assigned folder. They can make changes to the Settings, create new
mailboxes, nicknames, and filters, etc., and not affect other users on the
Macintosh.
Note: To give users easy access to their mail, you can create aliases for
their Eudora Settings files and put them wherever you want on the
Macintosh (the Apple Menu Items folder is a good option).
Troubleshooting
Occasionally, you may encounter a problem or bug when using Eudora (as
indicated by an error message or some other type of symptom).
Make sure you have the current maintenance release of Eudora: First, locate the
Eudora application in your Eudora Pro Application Folder. Click once on the
application to highlight it, and select Get Info from the Finder File menu. Look
for the Eudora version number in the dialog. Next, using your World Wide Web
browser, go to the Eudora Web site, <http://www.eudora.com>, and check to see
what the latest version of Eudora is. If that version is later than the one you have,
see your Eudora administrator about obtaining the later version. This may solve
the problem or bug you’ve encountered.

DNS load balancing [off]
If this is on, the workload of a community of Eudora users is spread over several
host computers. Turn this on if your network administrator tells you to.
DNS Load Balancing works by making Eudora choose a random address from the
list of addresses returned by the DNS (without DNS load balancing, Eudora will
always choose the first address from the list). Network administrators: If you have

addresses under one domain name, then instruct your users to use that domain
name and to turn on DNS Load Balancing. Now the users are equally likely to use
any one of the “balanced” machines for the service.
Overlap POP3 commands for better performance [off]
If this is on, commands are sent immediately to your server, instead of waiting for
a previous command to be completed. This is faster, but your POP server may not
be able to handle it.
Live Ph queries [off]
If this is on, the connection with your server is kept open with the Directory
Services window. Ph queries are automatically sent to the server when you finish
typing the query text.
Use mail-exchange records (SMTP Servers Only) [off]
If this is on, then when Eudora makes an SMTP connection, it asks your domain
name server to tell it which host would be best for accepting your mail. See your
system administrator before turning this setting on. The setting works only with
Open Transport.
Checking Mail
The Checking Mail Settings determine how Eudora checks for and receives your
incoming mail messages.

POP account [none]
This is the address for your account on the POP server.
Check for mail every ? minutes [off, none]
If this is on and you enter a number, Eudora automatically checks your POP
server for new mail at regular intervals and transfers to your Macintosh any mail
addressed to you. The number you enter specifies the number of minutes between
checks. It’s a good idea to set this at no less than 15 minutes. Checking mail more
often puts an unnecessary drain on your POP server. This option only works when
Eudora is running. Leaving this field empty disables automatic checking (even if
the box is checked).
Don’t check when using battery [off]
If this is on and your Macintosh is running on battery power, mail is not
automatically checked (even if you have the check mail option on).
Skip messages over ? K [off, 40]
If this is on, messages over the specified size are downloaded only in part. These
messages include the first few lines, and a statement that says the message is not
complete. This can be useful on slow connections. For details, see the section
“Managing Your Mail on the POP Server.”
Leave on server for ? days [off, none]
If this is on, Eudora copies incoming messages to your Macintosh and leaves the
message on the POP server for the specified number of days. If you leave it blank,
your mail is left on the server indefinitely. For details, see the section “Managing
Your Mail on the POP Server.”
Send on check [on]
If this is on, any messages that are queued in the Out mailbox are sent when mail
is checked, whether automatically or manually.
Save password [off]
If this is on, your password is remembered even if you quit and restart Eudora, so
you’ll never be prompted to enter it. Only use this option if your Macintosh is in a
secure place.
Delete from server when emptied from trash [off]
If this is on, any messages that are deleted from your Trash mailbox are also
deleted from the POP server. For details, see the section “Managing Your Mail on

An unqualified name is a name that doesn’t have an “@” sign followed by a
domain name. This can be used to save time when addressing large numbers of
messages to users in the same domain.

on it places the message in the Out mailbox marked ready for delivery (Q).
Send on check [on]
If this is on, any messages that are queued in the Out mailbox are sent when mail
is checked, whether automatically or manually.
Fix curly quotes [on]
If this is on, Eudora replaces all “curly” quotation marks in message text or
attachments with "conventional" quotation marks prior to sending the message. It
also replaces bullets (•) and en/em dashes (–/—). These marks are special
characters, and this option allows messages to be sent without using quotedprintable encoding.
Note: If your recipients have MIME, there’s no reason to use the above
option. Only turn it on if most of the people you correspond with
don’t use MIME.
Expand nicknames immediately [off]
If this is on, nicknames in message headers are replaced with the real addresses
when you switch fields.
Automatically Fcc to original mailbox [off]
If this is on, replies are automatically copied to the same mailbox that contains the
original message.
Stationery [None]
The default stationery for your dominant account: select a stationery file from the
popup, or select None for no stationery. If a stationery file is selected, that file is
used when you open new messages (except with the Redirect or Send Again
commands). The icon bar in the message window is set according to how the
stationery message was saved, regardless of how the options below are set. But,
you can always change them after you open the message. For more details, see the
section “Using Stationery Files.”
Options when not using stationery
The values you choose for the following options apply only when you are not
using stationery—that is, when the Stationery popup, above, is set to None. If, on
the other hand, you have selected a default stationery file in that popup, then the
values below are ignored. Instead, Eudora uses their corresponding values that
were set when the stationery file was saved. So, for example, if you choose

popup below to your Standard signature, your Alternate signature will be used.
Signature [Standard]
The default signature for your dominant account: select one from the popup, or
select None for no signature. If you select a signature, Eudora automatically
attaches that signature to the end of outgoing messages from your dominant
account. You can override this setting with the Signature popup in the
composition window. For more details, see the section “Using Signatures.”
May use Quoted-Printable [on]
If this is on, Eudora uses quoted-printable encoding when necessary, such as
when sending messages that contain long lines of text or special characters. If this
option is off, quoted-printable encoding is never used. We recommend that you
leave this option on.
Word wrap [on]
If this is on, a carriage return is not required at the end of each line of type in an
outgoing message. Eudora automatically wraps text to the next line, with line
breaks at roughly 76 characters per line. This makes your mail more legible to
recipients using line-oriented mail systems. It is strongly recommended that you
leave this option on.
Keep copies of outgoing mail [off]
If this is on, a copy of each message you send is kept in the Out mailbox. If this
option is off, outgoing messages are put in the Trash mailbox after they are sent.

Background Color [white]
This specifies a background color to be used in Eudora messages and mailbox
windows. Select the color using the Macintosh color wheel.
Print Font and Size [Courier, none]
The Print Font popup menu lets you select a font to be used when you print
messages using the Print command. Enter a point size in the box.
Message window width [80]
This specifies the width of new and received message windows (in characters). If
you leave this field blank, Eudora uses the default value of 80. This setting has no
effect on what your mail looks like when it is sent. When mail is sent, Eudora
wraps at or before 76 columns.
Note: If you use a proportional font, Eudora sets the window width based
on the width of the “0” character.
Message window height [none]
This specifies the height of new and received message windows (in lines). If you
leave this field blank, Eudora uses a default value of 20.
Note: If the Zoom windows when opening option is turned on, received
messages’ window heights are automatically adjusted to the height
of the message text.
Zoom windows when opening [on]
If this is on, new mailbox and message windows automatically open to their
“zoomed” size. The zoomed size is computed on a window-by-window basis. For
mailbox windows, zoomed size is just wide enough to display the widest
summary, and just long enough to display all the summaries (but no longer than
the Macintosh display screen). For message windows, zoomed size is just long
enough to display all of the message (but no longer than the Macintosh display
screen), and as wide as the Message window width setting. Composition
windows zoom to the height specified by the Message window height setting.
Waste cycles drawing trendy 3D junk [on]
If this is on, interface items are displayed in 3D. If this is off, interface items are
displayed in 2D.
Display graphics attachments inline [off]
If this is on, Eudora displays graphics attachments as pictures in the open
incoming message window. If this is off, Eudora displays the graphics
attachments as name-and-icon pairs. See the section “Receiving Attachments.”

automatically go away after two minutes. Many network problems are temporary,
so this allows Eudora to try the communication again. This is most useful if you
have automatic mail checking enabled.
Note: Turning this option on may cause some Communications Toolbox
connection tools to give you less progress information.

Reply to all [When option key is down]
This specifies which recipients to include in a reply. Reply to all By default (use
option key for sender only) creates a reply addressed to the sender and all the
recipients of the original message. You can hold down the option key to create a
reply to only the sender. Reply to all When option key is down creates a reply
addressed to only the sender. You can hold down the option key to create a reply
addressed to the sender and all the recipients of the original message.
When replying to all
This specifies how to address a reply. If Include yourself is on, when you Reply
to all (as described above) your address is left in the address list of the new
message and you receive a copy of your own reply. If this option is off (the
default), your address is removed from the reply message and you do not receive a
copy of the reply. If Put original To: recipients in Cc: field, not To: field is on
(the default is off), the addresses of the original message recipients are moved
from the To field to the Cc field of the reply-to-all message. Only the address of
the original sender is placed in the To field.
Note: To determine who you are for the Include yourself option, Eudora
uses the “me” nickname, if you create one for yourself. If you do
not have a “me” nickname, Eudora uses the contents of the POP
account and Return address fields from your Getting Started
Settings.

OT/PPP and MacSLIP
The OT/PPP and MacSLIP Settings determine what Eudora does when you are
connecting to your service provider using MacSLIP From Hyde Park Software or
Apple’s Open Transport PPP 1.0. Normally, when Eudora or any other
application tries to make a connection, MacSLIP or OT/PPP will automatically
dial your provider and establish a connection. This connection remains open until
you close it or a timeout period elapses. The settings below modify this behavior.
The OT/PPP and MacSLIP Settings
Don’t make automatic checks when MacSLIP or OT/PPP is not already connected
[off]
If this is on, automatic mail checks are not done unless your MacSLIP or OT/PPP
connection is currently running (this avoids unnecessary connections to your
service provider).
Disconnect MacSLIP or OT/PPP if Eudora connected it [on]
If this is on, MacSLIP or OT/PPP disconnects at the end of a mail check when it
was connected by Eudora, but it does not disconnect at the end of a mail check
when it was connected by another application. If this option is off, MacSLIP or
OT/PPP will not automatically disconnect at the end of a mail check, even if it
was connected by Eudora. Use this option to minimize the time you are connected
to your service provider.

The Moving Around Settings
Arrow+these modifiers to switch messages [Command]
If any of these are on and there is a message window open, you can hold down all
of the keys you have selected and use the Macintosh keyboard arrows to close the
current message and open the next or previous message in the mailbox. The up
and left arrow keys open the previous message; the down and right arrow keys
open the next message. The arrow keys can be used by themselves to move the
insertion point in messages.
After transferring or deleting or paging past end of current message, open
[Next unread message]
This specifies whether to automatically open the next message after you delete or
transfer the current message. Nothing means nothing is opened. Next message
means the next message in the mailbox is always opened. Next unread message
means the next unread message in the mailbox is always opened (could be way
down the list). Next message if unread means the very next message in the
mailbox is opened but only if it’s unread.

Re-sort mailboxes less often [off]
If this option is on, mailboxes are only sorted when they are opened or mail is
added to them.
Lock whole program in memory [off]
If this is on, the whole program is loaded into memory and kept there until you
select Quit. This takes more memory, but runs a little faster. This option is only
for 68k versions.
Use old-style “.toc” files [off]
If this is on, each mailbox stores its table of contents in a “mailbox.toc” file,
instead of in its resource fork (the default in 3.0 and later versions of Eudora). If
you have upgraded to version 3.0 or later, this is automatically on. You should
turn this off at some point so that your mailboxes convert to using resource forks.
With this option, each mailbox is converted as it is used. To convert your
mailboxes all at once (either to .toc files or to resource forks), use the TOC
converters provided with Eudora. The TOC README file explains the
differences between the two formats and how to use the TOC converters.
Convert Hesiod names to lower-case [on]
If this is on, Hesiod results are converted to lower-case, except for user names.
Note: Hesiod, developed at MIT under Project Athena, is server software
that provides to Eudora the name of your mail server. Hesiod is
used at few sites.
Include outdated Return-Receipt-To: [off]
If this is off, Eudora uses the “Disposition-Notification-To:” header in return
receipt requests to request that you be sent a notification when your message is
displayed by the recipient. If this is on, Eudora also sends the “Return-ReceiptTo:” header in return receipt requests. This header is understood by some older
mail delivery systems, and may return you a receipt when your message is
delivered to your recipient’s mailbox. The “Return-Receipt-To:” header cannot
give you any information about whether or not your recipient displayed your mail,
and is not supported by many newer mail delivery systems.
Write to Internet Config [off]
If this is on, preferences are written to Internet Config. Internet Config is not
supported, so this is not recommended.

Prompt for receipts requested by self [on]
If this is on, if you request a return receipt in an outgoing message and you
include yourself as a recipient, then when you receive the incoming message, you
are asked to respond to the request. If this is off, you are not asked to respond to
the request. This setting does not affect whether your other recipients get the
request: they will always get the request in a return-receipt message provided they
have a compatible mailer.
Note: To determine who you are for the above option, Eudora uses the

the link between the mail and that personality. As a result, mail
that had been associated with the old personality name is now
assigned to the Dominant personality. Therefore, choose
personality names wisely, and refrain from changing names unless
absolutely necessary.
POP account [none]
The address for this personality’s account on the POP server. For details about
this option, see the Getting Started Settings.
Real name [none]
The real name assigned to this personality (generally a first and last name). This
name is used in the From field of all outgoing mail for this personality.
Return address [none]

this personality, if this address is different from the personality’s POP account.
For more details about this option, see the Getting Started Settings.
Check for mail every ? minutes [off, none]
If this is on and you enter a number, then mail is automatically checked for this
personality at the specified interval. If this is off, no automatic mail checking
takes place for this personality (even if a number is in the box). For more
information, see the Checking Mail Settings. Note that you can have different
mail-checking intervals for different personalities, but if automatic mail-checking
is set for the Dominant personality, then the Check Mail command on the File
menu reflects the time of the next check for the Dominant personality.
Check mail on manual checks [on]
If this is on, each time you do a manual check for mail, by selecting the Check
Mail command from the File menu, then mail is checked for this personality. If

Note: To turn off all mail checking for the selected personality, turn off
both the Check for mail every ? minutes option and the Check
mail on manual checks option.

This is the name of the SMTP server for this personality. If the computer that this
personality’s POP account is on also runs an SMTP server, you can leave this
field blank.

alternate personalities, see the section “Using Stationery Files.”
Signature when not using stationery [Standard]
This sets the default signature for this personality, when you are not using
stationery: that is, when the Stationery popup (above) is set to None. If you have
chosen a stationery file in the above popup, then the signature used when that
stationery file was saved overrides your setting here.
Select a signature from this popup, or select None for no signature. If you select a
signature, Eudora automatically attaches that signature to the end of outgoing

The Eudora Folder
The first time you start Eudora, it creates a Eudora Folder within your System
Folder. Even though you do not need to access the Eudora Folder during normal
operation, this section is provided to show you where Eudora stores your
mailboxes and messages.
Attachments Folder
Incoming attachments are saved in the Attachments Folder until you specify
another folder in the Attachments Settings.
Eudora Filters
Filters are saved in the Eudora Filters file.
Eudora Items
The Eudora Items folder contains special files and folders for use with Eudora.
The Plugins folder (different from the Plugins folder in the Eudora Pro
Application Folder) contains settings and information files for your Eudora plugins.
Eudora Log
Mail transfers and errors are logged in the Eudora Log file. When the file reaches
100k in size, it is saved as Old Log (replacing any existing Old Log file) and a
new Eudora Log file is created.
Eudora Nicknames and Nicknames Folder
Address Book entries are saved in the default Eudora Nicknames file. If you
have created additional files, those are kept in the Nicknames Folder. These files
are in UNIX “.mailrc” format.

In, Out, and Trash
Mail is saved in the In, Out, and Trash mailbox files. Mailboxes that you create
are also saved in files like these. These files are in UNIX spool format.
Mailbox Aliases
Eudora supports the use of aliases for mailboxes that, for some reason, you have
moved to a location outside the Eudora Folder. This allows you to use these
mailboxes from within Eudora. Place the mailbox aliases in the Eudora Folder or
a subfolder within the Eudora Folder.
Note: A mailbox alias is automatically created and placed in the Eudora
Folder when the Mailbox menu Other... command is used to open the
mailbox. It is then deleted when you quit Eudora. However, if the
Other... command is used to open the mailbox from within a mail
folder or subfolder, the alias remains in the Eudora Folder
indefinitely.
The Eudora Pro Application Folder
During the installation, the Eudora Pro folder is installed on your hard drive in the
location you specify. This folder contains the following:
• Eudora Pro, the Eudora Pro application.

Appendix B – Dialup Eudora
Introduction
Eudora is designed for use with MacTCP or for dialup to Cisco terminal servers.
It can be used with other dialup connections as well. Complicated setups are
likely to be unreliable, but if the setup commands to connect are simple, Eudora
works well.
These instructions assume you are familiar with ResEdit, your communications
equipment, and your hosts. It is suggested that one person make these changes to
Eudora and then redistribute the customized version to other users at your site.
Macintosh Requirements
To use Eudora over a dialup connection, you must have the Communications
Toolbox installed. System 7 has it built in.
Dialup Requirements
Eudora needs a “transparent” connection to your POP, SMTP, and (optionally) Ph
servers. Transparent means primarily two things:
1.
Characters Eudora sends should not be echoed back to Eudora. Most
systems do echo characters, so something special may need to be done to
achieve this.
2.
You must pay close attention to how carriage returns are treated. UNIX
systems routinely translate carriage returns into linefeeds; you must either
disable this on your system or teach Eudora how to deal with it.
Navigation
Eudora has a very rudimentary scripting system built in. This capability is called
“navigation” to separate it from the rather sophisticated connotations of
“scripting.”
Eudora uses a list of strings that it sends out the serial port one at a time. After
each string, it waits until there is no output from the remote system for 2 seconds
QUALCOMM Incorporated
165
Appendix B – Dialup Eudora
Eudora User Manual
or until a given string is matched, after which Eudora continues with the next
string.
There can be three sets of navigation strings contained in STR# resources: one is
used when connecting (Navigate In), one is used when disconnecting (Navigate
Out), and one is used when switching from SMTP to POP (Navigate Mid). You
can use ResEdit to manipulate these resources. Any of the resources can be
absent, in which case Eudora skips the navigation it would otherwise have done
with that resource.
For each function, Eudora selects an appropriate resource in the following
manner. First, it takes the name of the connection tool currently in use (e.g.,
“Apple Modem Tool”); then, it appends a space and the current type of navigation
(e.g., “Navigate In”). Eudora looks for an STR# resource with that name (e.g.,
“Apple Modem Tool Navigate In”). If that is not found, Eudora looks for an
STR# resource named after the navigation type (e.g., “Navigate In”). Finally, it
looks for specific resource ids (2400 for Navigate In, 2600 for Navigate Out, and
4200 for Navigate Mid). The first STR# resource found is the only one used.
Navigation resources can be in the Eudora application itself, in your Eudora
Settings file, or in a resource plug-in file. The latter is a file with type “rsrc” and
creator “CSOm” placed in your Preferences folder; use of a plug-in file is highly
recommended.
Plug-in files go in the Preferences folder
Special Sequences in Navigation Resources
Eudora provides a set of special character sequences for use in Navigation
resources. These sequences are all two characters long, the first character being a
backslash. Either they are replaced with items from your Eudora Settings, or they
modify the Navigation process.
166
QUALCOMM Incorporated
Eudora User Manual
Appendix B – Dialup Eudora
Replacements
These special characters are replaced with strings. They can appear at any place in
a navigation string.
\u
POP account user name.
\h
POP account host name.
\p
POP account password.
\s
SMTP server host name.
\U Dial-in user name.
\P Dial-in password.
\n
A linefeed (ASCII 10).
\r
A carriage return (ASCII 13).
\\
A single backslash character.
\^
Enter a prompt for the \a modifier.
\a
Ask the user for something.
\c
Cancel if a string appears.
When \^ appears, all the text after it (up until the end of the string or the next ‘\’)
goes into a prompt string that will be used with the \a modifier.
When \a appears, a dialog will be used to ask the user to type something. What the
user types will be used where the ‘\a’ appears.
Example: \^Enter the SecureId code below:\a\r
This will put up a dialog with the prompt “Enter the SecureId code below:”, and
then wait for the user to type in the code. The code will then be sent, along with a
carriage return.
\c is used to enter text that will abort the navigation process. The text is valid only
for the duration of the particular string it appears in. If you wish to look for it in
another string, you must specify it again.
Example: \P\r\eaccepted\cdenied
QUALCOMM Incorporated
167
Appendix B – Dialup Eudora
Eudora User Manual
Eudora will send the dial-in password and a return, then wait until it sees either
“accepted” (in which case the navigation process will continue) or “denied”
(which will abort the navigation process and the mail transfer).
Modifiers
\b Hide from Progress window.
\D Delay.
\B Break.
\e
Expect something.
\b – When this appears as the first character in a given string, Eudora won’t print
the string in the Progress window when it is sent. This is useful for passwords or
other state secrets.
\D – Should be the first character in the string and followed only by digits or an
expect string. The digits are taken as a number of seconds to delay (e.g., “\D2” is
a two-second delay). As with other strings, Eudora will wait for output to stop for
two seconds, or for an expect string, before proceeding.
\B – Should be the first character in the string and followed only by digits or an
expect string. The digits are taken as the number of ticks (60ths of a second) to
send a break signal (e.g., “\B30” is a half-second break). As with other strings,
Eudora waits for output to stop for two seconds, or for an expect string, before
proceeding.
\e – Makes Eudora expect to see a specific string in the output from the dialup
server. Eudora sends whatever comes before the \e, and then waits for whatever
comes after it to occur in the data sent from the host. There are two caveats to this.
First, Eudora only matches on the first 7 bits; the high bit of each character is
ignored for matching. This is needed for systems that use parity. Second, Eudora’s
matching is fast and sloppy; highly repetitive data streams and long expect strings
might fool it (for example, Eudora wouldn’t see “Login:” if your server said:
“LogLogin:”).
Eudora follows its normal time-out process when looking for an expect string.
That is, after 45 seconds Eudora asks you if you want to keep waiting or cancel
the process. If you cancel, the connection process is stopped.
If you use either of the password replacement sequences (“\p” for your POP
account password or “\P” for your dialup password) in the same string as an
expect, Eudora assumes the password is wrong if the expect string isn’t found.
This causes Eudora to ask for your password the next time it tries to connect.
168
QUALCOMM Incorporated
Eudora User Manual
Appendix B – Dialup Eudora
Connecting to Servers
Once the navigation is done, Eudora issues a command to connect to the proper
port of the server you are using. Once this command is sent, the connection must
be transparent, as discussed above; no echoes and no carriage return translation.
Eudora comes configured to send the command
telnet hostname portnumber /stream<return>
The “<return>” means a carriage return in this document only; you must type
actual carriage returns in ResEdit. A template for the command is kept in 7400.13
(“7400.13” is shorthand for STR# resource id 7400, string 13). The template
begins life as “telnet %p %d /stream\n”. The %p is replaced with the hostname
and the %d with the port number. It is acceptable to change this string however
you please, except that %d, if it is used, must come after %p. The best way to
change this string is not to modify it, but to override it. You can do this by
creating an “STR” resource of id 7413 and putting the string you want Eudora to
use in that.
A Return By Any Other Name
When Eudora is communicating with your POP or SMTP server, it’s important
that they agree on what constitutes a line. The Internet specification stipulates that
a line ends with a carriage return followed by a linefeed. Most UNIX systems will
“helpfully” translate carriage returns into linefeeds. If you can’t get that feature
turned off, it may help to make Eudora send only a carriage return, and not the
carriage return/linefeed pair. You can edit 6000.17 to be what you want Eudora to
send at the end of a line. The best way to change this string is not to modify it, but
to override it. You can do this by creating an “STR” resource of id 6017 and
putting the string you want Eudora to use in that.
An Example: Direct Connection To A UNIX Machine
Here’s a suggested connection method if your Macintosh has a serial line to a
UNIX machine, or if there are modems on your Macintosh and UNIX machine.
1.
Install the srialpop program on your UNIX system. Source to this is part
of the Eudora distribution.
2.
Put the following strings in the “Navigate In” resource.
1:
\r\r\eogin:
2:
\u\r\essword:

Note: A plug-in with these strings in it is part of the Eudora distribution.

Need More Options?
If Eudora’s scripting isn’t adequate for you, one alternative is the Calypso
connection tool. It lets you use CCL scripts for the connection/disconnection
process. Calypso can be found on major Macintosh archive sites.

Appendix C – Using UUCP
Introduction
Eudora works with UUCP in almost exactly the same way as it works with the
POP and SMTP servers. Attachments are supported, as is regular mail checking
and the other features. It is possible to mix methods; for example, you can use
UUCP for reading mail but SMTP for sending it.
Eudora does not come with UUCP. Three available Macintosh UUCP systems are
“uupc 3.0” ([email protected]), “gnuucp” ([email protected]), and
“UUCP/Connect” (formerly “µAccess,” [email protected]). “UUCP/Connect”
is commercial; the other two are freeware. Eudora has been tested with all three
packages; it works well with uupc 3.0 and UUCP/Connect, but it does not work
very smoothly with gnuucp.

Hosts Settings for UUCP
POP Account
If you are going to receive mail via UUCP, you should put the full path name of
your “mail drop” (the file where UUCP leaves mail for you) in the POP account
field. Precede the name with an exclamation point.
TCP/IP or Communications Toolbox
This setting (Connection method in the Getting Started Settings) doesn’t matter
if you’re doing pure UUCP mail. If you’re trying to mix UUCP with SMTP or
POP, set this to whatever is appropriate for your SMTP or POP connection.
SMTP Server
If you want to send mail via UUCP, several items have to go in the SMTP field.
Each one should be preceded by an exclamation point. The items are, in order:
mac - the UUCP name of your Macintosh.
spoolpath: - the full path name of the UUCP working directory.
user - your user name on your Macintosh.
0000 - a four-digit sequence number; will be incremented by Eudora.

Eudora User Manual
Appendix C – Using UUCP
Return Address
If you use UUCP for reading your mail, you must put your correct return address
in the Return address (if different from POP account) field. It is absolutely
vital that this address be correct. If it’s wrong, no one is able to reply to your mail
and the mail transport system is unable to tell you your mail can’t be delivered.
Operation
Almost all Eudora features work normally with UUCP. The one exception is the
Leave on server for ? days option in the Checking Mail Settings. When Eudora
is used with POP and this option is on, only unread mail is downloaded. With
UUCP, however, Eudora does not distinguish between read and unread mail; it
downloads all the mail at each check. This results in duplicate messages, unless
you use some other means to clean out your mail drop between Eudora checks. It
is suggested that this option remain off when using UUCP.
Internals
Mail Drop Format
Eudora expects the mail drop to be in standard UNIX mailbox format, with UUCP
envelopes (“From” lines) at the beginning of each message. The mail drop should
use carriage returns (not line feeds) for new lines.
Working Files
When sending mail, Eudora creates two files in the UUCP work directory. These
files are as follows:
D.mac0####
The message itself is put in this file. As distributed, Eudora uses returns for new
lines in this file. That can be changed by editing the last characters of STR#
resource id 8000, string 5; Eudora will use whatever nonprintable characters are at
the end of the string. The mail begins with a UUCP envelope. The “####” stands
for the four-digit sequence number mentioned above in the section “SMTP
Server.” It increments as each message is sent.
X.mac0####
Commands for the UUCP system are put in this file. These commands are all
editable via ResEdit; they are distributed with returns at the ends.
U user mac
; identifies you (STR# id 8000, string 1)

Appendix D – MIME and Mapping
What is MIME?
“MIME” stands for Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions. MIME serves two
major purposes: it allows mail applications to tell one another what sort of data is
in mail, and it also provides standard ways for mail applications to encode data so
that it can be sent through the Internet mail system.
MIME Encodings
The Internet uses SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) to move mail around.
SMTP is limited to the US-ASCII character set. This is a problem for people who
speak languages other than American English and so need accented characters or
non-American letters, or for people who want to use special symbols like the
section mark (§).
MIME provides a way around this restriction. It offers two encodings, “quotedprintable” and “base64.” These encodings use US-ASCII character codes to
represent any sort of data you like, including special characters or even non-text
data.
“Quoted-printable” is used for data that is mostly text but has special characters or
very long lines. It’s very simple. Quoted-printable looks just like regular text,
except when a special character is used. The special character is replaced with an
“=” and two more characters that represent the character code of the special
character. So, a section mark (§) in quoted-printable looks like this: “=A8”.
However, there are some other things that quoted-printable does. For one, since it
uses an “=” to mean something special, equals signs must themselves be encoded
(as “=3D”). Second, no line in quoted-printable is allowed to be more than 76
characters long. If your mail has a line longer than 76 characters, the quotedprintable encoding will break your line in two and put an “=” at the end of the first
line, to signal to the mail reader at the other end that the two lines are really
supposed to be all one line. Finally, a few mail systems either add spaces to or
remove them from the ends of lines. So, in quoted-printable, any space at the end
of a line gets encoded (as “=20”), to protect it from such mail systems.
QUALCOMM Incorporated
175
Appendix D – MIME and Mapping
Eudora User Manual
Let’s try an example. Here’s a passage of text that you might type on your
Macintosh:
«Il est démontré, disait-il, que les choses ne peuvent être
autrement; car tout étant fait pour une fin, tout est nécessairement
pour la meilleure fin.»
Without any encoding, this might show up on your recipient’s screen as:
+Il est dimontri, disait-il, que les choses ne peuvent btre
autrement; car tout itant fait pour une fin, tout est nicessairement
pour la meilleure fin.;
This corruption happens because SMTP cannot handle the special characters.
However, if you and your recipient both have MIME, quoted-printable encoding
would be used, and your text would show up properly:
«Il est démontré, disait-il, que les choses ne peuvent être
autrement; car tout étant fait pour une fin, tout est nécessairement
pour la meilleure fin.»
While your mail was actually in transit, however, it would have looked like this:
=ABIl est d=E9montr=E9, disait-il, que les choses ne peuvent =EAtre
=
autrement; car tout =E9tant fait pour une fin, tout est n=E9cessairement =
pour la meilleure fin.=BB
Base64 encoding is another way to protect binary data from the SMTP mail
system. However, Base64 makes no attempt to be legible, and is most appropriate
for non-text data.
176
QUALCOMM Incorporated
Eudora User Manual
Appendix D – MIME and Mapping
MIME Labeling
The other important part of MIME is that it lets mailers communicate what kind
of data is in a message (or part of a message). The primary mechanism used for
this is the Content-Type header:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
A content-type header is divided into three parts: the content type, the content
subtype, and the parameters. In this case, the content type is “text,” meaning the
message contains mostly legible text. The content subtype is “plain,” which
means there aren’t any formatting commands or anything like that embedded in
the text. Finally, “charset=iso-8859-1” is a parameter; in this case it identifies the
character set the message uses.
The major content types are as follows:
text
legible text
image
pictures and graphics
audio
sound
video
moving pictures
message
messages or pieces of messages
multipart
several different kinds of data in a single message
application
everything else
Practical Issues
There are really only two things you sometimes need to do with Eudora and
MIME. One is that it may occasionally be necessary to turn off quoted-printable
encoding. Another is that you may want to know how to define mappings between
MIME types and Macintosh types.
Turning Off Quoted-Printable
Eudora automatically uses quoted-printable encoding if your mail or your plain
text attachments contain special characters. If your recipients don’t have MIME,
quoted-printable can hurt more than it helps. If that’s the case, just turn off the QP
icon in the outgoing message icon bar when you are sending text files to those
recipients.

Eudora User Manual
Mapping Between MIME Types and Macintosh Types
When you send attached files to other Eudora users, Eudora automatically knows
what kind of data is in the files, because Eudora sends along special information
with the file. However, if you’re sending the file to a non-Macintosh user, or
receiving files from a non-Macintosh user, it’s important to get the right MIME
type information on the file, or for Eudora to understand what the MIME type
information means.
Eudora knows about some MIME types. However, since new MIME types are
being defined all the time, it may be necessary to add to Eudora’s knowledge from
time to time. If you’re familiar with ResEdit, this isn’t too hard to do.
The way Eudora maps between MIME and Macintosh types is with EuIM and
EuOM resources. EuOM resources are used for sending attachments, EuIM for
receiving. They have the same basic structure.
EuOM and EuIM resources are lists of individual elements called “maps.” Each
map describes a Macintosh document type (or MIME data type) and then lists
what MIME data type (or Macintosh document type) it corresponds to. For any
given type, Eudora looks through all the maps in all the EuOM or EuIM
resources, and uses the best match.
Note: EuOM and EuIM resources are also used when uuencoding and
uudecoding files, so that filename suffixes can be mapped to and
from Macintosh types. A good set of EuIM and EuOM resources
can substantially improve document exchange with systems that
use uuencode.
Sending
When you create a map in an EuOM resource, you use the “Creator Code” and
“Type” fields to specify what documents the map applies to. These fields should
be filled with the four-byte creator code or Macintosh type of the documents you
want to send. If you leave the Creator Code blank, but fill in the type, the map is
used for any document of that type, regardless of creator. If you fill in both
Creator Code and Type, a document has to match both for the map to be used.
Given the choice, Eudora uses the map that matches both creator and type.
The other parts of the map are used to construct the MIME information. Content
Type and Content SubType are the MIME type and subtype to use for the
document. Filename suffix allows you to tell Eudora to add a suffix to the
filename, as an extra hint to the receiving system (for example, you might have
Eudora add “.xls” to Excel files).

Eudora User Manual
Appendix D – MIME and Mapping
“Newline conversion?” tells Eudora whether or not to convert carriage returns in
the file to carriage return, linefeed. Usually, you should set this to 1 for text data,
but to 0 for binary files.
Finally, “May suppress resource fork?” is used in conjunction with Eudora’s
Always include Macintosh information option (in the Attachments Settings). If
you set this to 1, and Always include Macintosh information is off, Eudora
won’t send Macintosh type and creator information with the file, and won’t send
the resource fork. Instead, it will just send the data fork with the MIME
information attached to it.
An Example Map in an EuOM Resource
The map above says that all files of type “EPSF,” no matter what the creator,
should be sent as “application/postscript,” that “.eps” should be added to the
filename, that carriage returns should not be turned into carriage return/linefeed
pairs, and that when the Always include Macintosh information switch is off,
the resource fork won’t be sent.
Receiving
EuIM resources are used for receiving files. They’re pretty much the same as
EuOM resources, except that the MIME type and subtype are used for matching,
and the Macintosh creator code and type are applied to the file received.
As with EuOM resources, you can leave parts blank. If you want to match all files
with an “.eps” suffix, regardless of the MIME type or subtype, leave the type and
subtype blank. If you don’t care what the filename suffix is, leave that blank and

Appendix D – MIME and Mapping
Eudora User Manual
match with the MIME type and/or subtype only. Again, as with EuOM resources,
Eudora will choose the map that matches best.
With EuIM resources, it’s sometimes a good idea to use several maps to catch all
important cases. For example, it might be a good idea to have three maps for
dealing with PostScript files, as follows:
Content Type: application
Content SubType: postscript
Filename suffix:
Creator Code: mlpr
Type: TEXT
This map will catch most MIME PostScript files, and set their creator to MacLPR.
Content Type:
Content SubType:
Filename suffix: .eps
Creator Code: dPro
Type: EPSF
This map will match any incoming file with a suffix of “.eps,” regardless of the
MIME type info, and set its type to “EPSF” and creator to “dPro” (MacDraw
Pro). But what if a file comes in with a suffix of “.eps” and a MIME type/subtype
of “application/postscript”? Which map gets used? The first one gets used; when
Eudora has a choice between matching a suffix and matching MIME type
information, MIME wins. A third map may be in order:
Content Type: application
Content SubType: postscript
Filename suffix: .eps
Creator Code: dPro
Type: EPSF
This makes application/postscript files with suffixes of “.eps” get type EPSF and
creator dPro.
