Eudora Pro 4.0.1 Updater Released -- Qualcomm has released a free updater that takes Eudora Pro 4.0 to version 4.0.1. Although the update adds few new features, it includes many small tweaks, including vastly improved find performance within the Filters window, improved HTML parsing and performance, better nickname completion performance, and the capability to send copies of both styled and plain text in a single message using MIME. In addition, I recently learned of a neat feature that also exists in Eudora Pro 4.0: To see which filters have been applied to a selected message, press Shift and choose Filters from the Windows menu. Eudora responds by opening the Filters window with the applied filters selected. Although there's nothing earth-shattering in Eudora Pro 4.0.1, the improvements are well worth the 2.3 MB download.

Copy Existing Filename to 'Save As' Field
While many utilities provide file naming automation, they're mostly overkill for those cases when you need to make small variations in file content while ensuring the documents group together in a "by name" list.
In the Save As dialog, the default name is the current document name. You can quickly change this to match any existing file.
1. Make the list of files the active element.
2. Click on a grayed-out filename, which momentarily turns black.
3. The Save As field now contains the filename you just clicked.
You can modify the name (adding, say, "version 3") or overwrite that existing file you clicked.
