Default Eudora 7.1 with Java, JavaScript

A financial services company is telling me that their secured emails must be read with both Java and JavaScript installed to work with my Eudora 7.1.

I have opted for paper statements from this company, and now I am posting here to ask whether Java and JavaScript have anything to do with Eudora. I was under the impression that JavaScript worked with browsers, but I suppose it could work with other programs, too.

Considering that Eudora uses Internet Explorer to display email, I've always assumed Eudora could use Java and Javascript. What I wonder is how to make sure it is turned on (there is more than one setting).

I can find the setting and see that Java is turned on, but I cannot find a way to make a setting for JavaScript for Internet Explorer.

On my system, Eudora uses its own display for e-mail. Did you set up browser viewing somehow? Or is this a PC v Mac thing.

I wonder if they would send you a test email...I've never had any problem receiving emails from anyone in Eudora...

I don't know about the Mac. But on the PC, I find the controls under Tools|Options|Viewing Mail

When I used Win2k I could use IE as the viewer in Eudora. But I could also uncheck the choice and use Eudora as the viewer.

I don't know enough about IE to answer. Maybe someone else knows. Also, I was assuming you left IE turned on as the viewer. So maybe you should double-check this by looking at Tools|Options|Viewing Mail to see which viewer it is using. Also, maybe the Internal Eudora viewer can handle this too.

BTW, can the financial service company tell you exactly which menus in Eudora and IE to check? This would be much easier. Or can they send you a test email?

Interesting. I don’t find a Tools menu at all.

Odd.
