    Fall '05 they say?

    How are they going to keep their business? Surely, it's tough to compete with free e-mail clients already without taking lots of time to update for various operating systems. Considering the lead time for Tiger, they could have been ready by now.

    But...

    who uses Eudora anyway? :confused:

    With Apple's Mail, Thunderbird, and countless other (better, IMHO) alternatives available free, who is going to pay for an email client?

    I gave up on Eudora after a few years and fighting with it just to produce a decent rendering of HTML mail. When it blew up after I installed Panther and the index lost half my mail history, I gave up depending on it.

    Thunderbird is a much better e-mail client.

    Besides, Mozilla's people are professional enough that they don't write whiny "Apple messed us up again" notes in their release notes the way Qualcomm's Eudora staff does.

    I also left Eudora a few years ago. It kept crashing. Would not consider going back. Now use Entourage.
