Eurdora OSE does not retain the original mbox data structure, which stores all attachments as indiviual files together in one folder. It uses the same modern mbox file used by Apple Mail and others. No software is currently develped/supported that can access old Eudora mail archives directly, without iomport/conversation.
Many Eudora users disliked th direction penelop took. Similarly, reception to Euroda OSE continued to be lukewarm months after the release. The intended updates, to be released in parallel with new Thunderbird releases, have not materialized and continue to lead to frustration and disappointment in the Eudora community.
On June 28,2013, the Mozilla website indicated that Eudora OSEis based on an out-of-date version of Thunderbird and that, to Mozilla's knowledge, Qualcomm has no plans to update or support it. Mozilla recommands currents users consider switching to Thunmderbird.
The total portable nature of Eudora is major benefit. All mailbox files and structures live in one directory with the application itself.Features:
