I had to discontinue Eudora a while ago too. When I got my PowerBook
G4 (about 5 years ago?), Eudora no longer worked and they did not have
a good fix for whatever operating system etc. I was using. So I
switched to the Apple Mail application, which is somewhat similar to
Eudora (ability to make folders, sort mail, etc.). All my old mail
files migrated easily. I have been happy with Mail, despite having
used Eudora for several years.

Since lots of viruses target Outloook and Outlook Express, I have heard
for PC's that one recommended free program is the one you download from
Firefox (Mozilla). I have not tried it but keep intending to get it
downloaded for my husband. (I do use the Firefox browser sometimes, and
I like it).
