Email client for older machines? (need help)

Hi Roger,

Are you talking about "Eudora Pro 3"? - if so, I have a legit copy, but I
didn't try it yet because the manual shows just a "POP3 account" field in
the host setup - I need a separate "incoming mail host" field, and the
POP3 username must be able to contain am "_at_xxx.yyy" which is DIFFERENT
from the configured host (it gets sent as part of the login string

Do you know if Eudora3 actually supports such a misconfigured server

Rumor has it that may have mentioned these words:

This one should do it:

If not, try here:

(you'll have to search thru all the 32-bit shiznit to get to the 16-bit
schtuff -- scroll down near the bottom...)

They still have a DOS version, as well.

Hope this helps,
