Dear Computer Lady,
I’ve been reading your column for years and today I need your help.
My problem: Users of the beloved orphaned email client Eudora 7.1 who download their POP Gmail are being affected by what seems to be Google rolling out new SSL certificates.
I like having my email stored on my computer not in the clouds.
Can you tell me how to fix my problem so I can use Eudora again?
Keep up the great work, Jim
Unfortunately, I can’t tell you how to fix eudora, it has been abandoned and is no longer being updated.
I can only give you the best available alternative which would be Mozilla Thunderbird at:
Thunderbird is a free, open source email program. I have found that it is easy to setup, easy to use, and it has the features and abilities that most people are looking for in a local email program.
In addition to the built in features, Thunderbird has addons available that provide features like calendars and mail merge.
I have found that Thunderbird has more features and is easier to use than any of the email apps that come with recent versions of Windows. It is a great replacement for Outlook Express, and far easier to use and more powerful than the Windows 10 mail app.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
