UPGRADE REBATE PROGRAM
The Eudora Upgrade Rebate Program allows you to receive a rebate on Eudora
Pro 3.0.3 if you already have Eudora Pro (other than the version in this
package) on your system. The installer provides you with an upgrade
validation number for you to write on the upgrade rebate coupon. The coupon
is attached to your Quick Start Guide, which contains complete instructions
on the Eudora Upgrade Rebate Program.
1. If you are an end-user of a multi-user Eudora site license, this
upgrade rebate program does not apply and your System Administrator
probably already took care of the upgrade rebate for your organization.
2. If you bought a "For Educational Use Only" version of Eudora Pro,
then you do not qualify for this Eudora Upgrade Rebate Program.
3. IF YOU ARE A SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR AND YOU DO NOT WANT THE INSTALLER
SCREENS PERTAINING TO THE UPGRADE REBATE PROGRAM TO SHOW UP FOR END-USERS,
PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW UNDER "FOR SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS
FOR SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS ONLY
Assuming that your users install Eudora Pro from a network volume,
here's how to remove any mention of the Eudora upgrade program from
their installation process:
1. Copy all the files in the CD-ROM's Eudora folder to an empty
directory from which users will be installing Eudora.
2. In that directory, create an empty text file (using Notepad,
for example) and name it Nupgrade. The file name can have any
extension, or no extension, and the contents of the file are
3. Instruct your users to install Eudora by running the copy of
Setuped.exe from that directory.
NEW FEATURES AND CHANGES IN 3.0.3
Below are features and changes to the Eudora Pro software
that is not documented in the user manual or help text.
* (32-bit only) In the Checking Mail dialog box (Tools,
Options), an additional Authentication style, RPA (Remote
Passphrase Authentication), has been added. This allows you
to get your messages if they're on a server that requires
authentication via RPA, such as a CompuServe POP server.
Before you can use the RPA authentication style, you'll need
to obtain a support module for RSA from your service provider.
For example, for CompuServe you'll need the Virtual Key software,
which can be downloaded from this Web site:
* A new pre-registration dialog box appears before the
registration dialog box appears if you have not yet
registered your Eudora software.
* A Return Address field has been added to the Getting Started
panel of the Options dialog box. Return Address is still in
the Personal Info, Sending Mail, and Personalities panels of
the Options dialog box.
* A new Using Context Sensitive Help dialog box is displayed the
first time you launch Eudora (or when the Eudora.ini file does
not exist). This dialog box contains tips on using context-
sensitive help in Eudora. You can read the same information at
any time via Using Context Sensitive Help under the Help menu.
* A new switch, WordWrapOnScreen, has been added to the [Settings]
category in the Eudora.ini file. When word wrapping is enabled and when
WordWrapOnScreen is set to 1, lines wrap in the composition window
at the same positions as when the message is sent. (Otherwise, the
width of the composition window determines where the lines appear
This can occur only if you and your recipient's composition window
is wide enough on both screens for the column width specified, and
that you use a fixed-width font, such as Courier, to compose the message.
To define the columns, the switch WordWrapOnScreen must be
manually added to the Eudora.ini file and set to 1 (WordWrapOnScreen=1),
and WordWrapColumn must be set to the column number you wish
the text to wrap (WordWrapColumn=70 for 70 columns).
* Dragging the dump truck icon onto a folder icon in the mailbox list
now causes the folder to open automatically.
