Eudora S-L-O-W logging on to server.

  1. Default Eudora S-L-O-W logging on to server.

    Eudora has become very slow logging on to the pop server, but
    otherwise works fine. I tried Mozilla Thunderbird as a comparison and
    it zips in and downloads the mail almost instantly.

    Is this a fair comparison with Eudora which is loaded with lots of
    previous messages and Thunderbird the opposite or is there a trick or
    tweek to smarten Eudora V7.1.0.9 up somewhat.

    Should the remedy be obvious and simple please consider advancing
    years as my excuse.

    Thanks.

    Robby

    First mail check only, or also on subsequent repeated mail checks,
    with Eudora left runnning?

    Always been this way, or started after SSL was introduced?

    Do you know your CPU type and speed?
    (typing one "Break" while holding "Windows key"
    displays all about CPU in lower right of "General" tab
    on Windows XP, hopefully Vista too).

    Control Panel/System will do that for you on Vista.

    Nope...still the same. So esoteric? Rethink that one :-)
