Eudora Light to Eudora (Windows)

If you've moved to the current version of Eudora from an older version of Eudora or Eudora Light, some of the visual changes may be disconcerting. Below are a couple tips how to modify the user-interface to make it more comfortable for you.

To turn off the Preview Pane, from the Tools menu, choose Options. Scroll down and select Viewing Mail. Uncheck the box next to Show Message Preview Pane. Click OK.

Viewing Download/Send Status

Tools: Task Status.

The Task Status window displays sending and receiving activity as it happens.

From the Tools menu, choose Task Status. The window pictured above will appear at the bottom of your screen.

Moving/Closing the Mailboxes Window
