This similar to Incredimail, Outlook Express and Pegasus Mail is strictly meant for
e-mailing and have no personal information manager bundled. Eudora’s mail client can be downloaded from its official website, www.eudora.com, and is available for use in three 

versions. The light version is free to use, has no ads or technical support, but comes with fewer features. The sponsored version is free again, has all the features except Spamwatch and tech support and displays ads on the client. The paid version has all the features, full
technical support and no ads. We tested the paid version of the client.

There is not much pull towards putting this client to use with the exception of
security features included in it, which compete with Thunderbird. 

It offers Virus and Trojan protection, Open SSL, Scam and Spamwatch, all of which function reasonably well as compared to the others. Although, the feature we have to pay for
is Spamwatch; didn’t impress us all that much, as it detected only 147 of the 210 spam mails we bombed the client with. As for security, Scam-watch protects you from dodgy websites and 
Secure Socket Layers provide message protection, and you can choose whether to allow scripts, and so on, to be active in incoming HTML e-mail. It does have an impressive online spell checker integrated in it, but then as
mentioned it’s online. 

Eudora happens to be one of the highest memory-consuming clients we tested, consuming around 21 MB of memory while idle. Its interface isn’t as great as some of the others, but overall its a good choice for basic e-mailing.
