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).

28 Feb 2009Version 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.

28 Feb 2009Version 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.

5 Jan 2008Version 1.04 of the Bugscreen plugin released

This version fixes a bug caused when emails with attachments were received and were garbled.

27 Dec 2007Version 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.
