    Eudora has been around for years and offers a classic approach to emailing. In this review, you will learn why many consider Eudora a flexible and efficient email program.

    I can’t say just how much I enjoy using Eudora. From conception, the makers have been successful in fixing any bugs that has arisen. They have faced each and every problem with elegance and efficiency. With each new release, Eudora has become faster, more flexible and incredibly easy to use.

    There is a certain amount of finesse to reading and writing emails in Eudora 7.1. Using Bayesian filtering, Eudora’s SpamWatch easily eliminates spam with versatile rules. ScamWatch can look for spoof URls and cracks down on the phishing emails that are looking to steal sensitive and secure data from your machine.

    Verdict

    Rating Average

    Eudora 7.1 is a valid program, and the franchise seemed to have greatly improved with the 8.0 beta version that is currently going around. There is a free (Sponsored) and paid version of the program, but if you don’t like annoying ads, the paid one is the way to go. It is only $49 for the full version or $39 for the upgrade. Either way, you will be impressed with the power and reliability of the email client. Sorry Mac users, Eudora doesn’t currently offer support for the Mac after version 6.2.4.
