Eudora OSE is a reliable e-mail client which enables you to control your POP3 and IMAP email accounts straight from the desktop.
Familiar and intuitive GUI
The program is based on the much more popular Mozilla Thunderbird, so in case you are already familiar with this application, the accommodation period will be short.
The interface is similar and everything seems to be just in the place you would expect it to be, with neatly organized menus that provide access to different sides of the app.
Import settings and take advantage of indexed searching
You can thus configure a new account, change options, compose a new mail, import settings or edit the address book entries straight from the main window.
Eudora OSE offers indexed searching, which means your search results should be displayed in no time, but also dedicated filters to better organize your inbox. Just like in Thunderbird's case, the toolbar and the buttons are fully customizable.
Creating new messages and set up custom notifications
Composing new mail messages is easy as Eudora OSE enables you to edit the text, insert attachments, check the spelling, add images, tables, links, HTML content, symbols and all the usual characteristics found in an e-mail client.
You can configure Eudora OSE to check for new emails automatically at a user-defined interval and display a small popup notification every time a new message lands in your inbox.
Support for RSS feeds and extensions
In addition to that, the program works with multiple accounts at the same time, with specific rules for each of them, but also with newsgroups and feeds.
Last but not least, it is compatible with Mozilla Thunderbird extensions, which means you can always add new features and tools using Mozilla's add-on center.
A last assessment
With a minimum footprint on computer resources and working on all Windows editions, it is pretty clear that Eudora OSE is one of the top picks in the e-mail clients market. The interface enables all types of users to get around it, the response time is good and we did not come across any errors or crashes in our tests.
