It's been a bit now. Does anyone know how the Mozilla project is coming along now and if we an expect to see the Firefox version of Eudora any time soon?

RE: Any news on the Mozilla project

Dear jlockley,

I believe it is called Penelope!

Check the FAQ area of this Forum for answers (If there are any FAQs!) , it could save you a lot of time and effort!

RE: Any news on the Mozilla project

well, here we are two years later. Is it going to happen? I have pretty much given up on Eudora for web mail.

RE: Any news on the Mozilla project

Dear jlockley,

I am considering Thunderbird in the meantime, what is your opinion on that?

Regards
Jim

I tried it a year or so ago and found it far less user friendly than Eudora. I can't remember the exact reasons, but I believe part of the problem was that it couldn't organize as well.

Somewhere there is a forum on the Mozilla site about Eudora with a wish list. It's amazing how many improvements were desired. If they all come true and if the thing ever gets distributed, it will be a good program.

An update:

The Beta for Mozilla's Eudora has been available for some time. http://wiki.mozilla.org/Penelope

I installed it and am not blown away. It appears to be Eudora, but I have not been able to send yet, and more annoying, it flips off repeat error pop ups once opened inadvertently (by clicking on an email address, for instance) stating that the message could not be saved, try again? Cancellation requires insistent clicking on successive popups.

I will wait to see what else they have to offer, but I would say as for me, my days of desktop based email clients are pretty much over.
