IMHO Qualcomms Eudora is a great email program. It's been around for years, has a great
look and feel, isn't overly complicated, and isn't vulnerable to most of those nasty worms
out there which spread through Outlook's address book. Despite being a great email application,
Eudora doesn't do everything, and doesn't do everything I want it to do – but to make up for
this, it does have an architecture which allows for third-party plugin modules to extend its
capabilities. On these pages I will feature a number of plugins that I have written for the
Windows version of Eudora (>5.0).

Version 1.05 of the Bugscreen plugin released
This version fixes the bug which caused base64 emails to come through blank. I only ever used to get about one base64 encoded emails a year, so it was nigh on impossible to test for but, through a random act of strangeness, a monthly e-letter I subscribe to changed to base64 encoding a little while back so I finally had some examples to work with. It only took about two or three months to do, but base64 emails are now handled correctly. Bugscreen still does not process them, but at least they do not come through empty any more.

Version 1.01 of the xFormat plugin released
I was riding my bicycle and got hit by a car (which promptly sped off) about three weeks ago breaking some ribs etc. While I was laid up at home feeling miserable for myself and having nothing to do with my time, I revisited the xFormat plugin and went back to fix a another periodic bug which I guess no one else ever noticed or bothered reporting which would cause the plugin to crash eudora sometimes when calling user-defined formatting commands. It is fixed now so should crash no more.

Version 1.03 of the Bugscreen plugin released
This version removes the old “AVG Fix” option - the plugin now works with AVG without any extra help. This should also improve its compatibility with anything else which may do nefarious things to headers. A downside is AVG will scan incoming “Plain & Styled” emails twice, but that only takes an extra second or two.
The preview plugin allows you to see the effects of the styler, setbackground, and smiley plugins without having to send youself and email. Works with all versions of smiley and styler, and versions 1.17 onwards of setbackground. Preview of embedded images seems to only work with Eudora 5.?(MORE)
