Eudora Mail

Eudora is an e-mail client for Macintosh and Windows. The program is named for Eudora Weltey, an author who wrote a book called "Why I Live at the PO". The email client was originally developed in 1988 by Steve Dorner, and has been owned by Qualcomm since 1991.

In 2006 Qualcomm stopped development on Eudora and moved it to open source, using Mozilla Thunderbird's code base. At this time, Gustavus dropped ended for Eudora.

At Gustavus

Historically (before 2006), Eudora was the e-mail client of choice at Gustavus. When Qualcomm dropped development of the product, Gustavus users were required to move to a supported application such as Mozilla Thunderbird, WebMail or Apple Mail for their email.

The open source Eudora is no longer being developed, therefore Gustavus no longer supports Eudora. Please see Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail or WebMail pages for help with e-mail clients.
