Eudora Pro 4.2 Update Released

Qualcomm has released a free update to its widely used Eudora Pro email application for the Macintosh; the 3.8 MB update will convert any version of Eudora Pro 4.x to Eudora Pro 4.2. Version 4.2 is a significant upgrade, sporting major new enhancements such as inline spell checking, support for IMAP email accounts, speech capabilities, and a cool fast-moving Search feature that operates intuitively across mailboxes (and enables users to save queries for future use). In addition, Eudora Pro 4.2 has a myriad of smaller enhancements, including the capability to speak Reply-To addresses (so, for example, you’re less likely to send a private message to a mailing list), improved handling of background sending and delivery, optional support for animated GIFs in HTML email, and a new "x-eudora-setting" URL type that enables technical support personnel and power users to help others modify Eudora’s plethora of settings easily. Eudora Pro 4.2 is native for either 68K or PowerPC systems, and requires a 68020 processor or better, System 7.1.2 or higher, and a POP or IMAP email account.
