Default Eudora Classic Question

I'm using the last Qualcomm version of Eudora. When there are hyperlinks in emails, I hover over them and the URL is not revealed. And I can't figure out another way to see what the URL is, other than clicking it. And I don't want to do that without knowing what it is. I tried turning off having Explorer technology display the email, but that doesn't help.

Suggestions?

Look DOWN...'-}}

And the url should display in Eudora's staus bar at the bottom of the screen...

Alternatively, doubleclick on the email (in the IN box list) and it will open full screen, right click and choose View Source and you can then scroll down in the source code to find the link--it's sort of a pita but I've done this with some regularity...

Thanks. I didn't realize Eudora had a status bar. I found it was turned off in Options. I also see now the advantage of opening the message full screen. So thanks for that too.

And I just discovered that I can also send the email to my browser, and use browser tools if I want. But I don't know if sending it to the browser might accidentally open an attachment. Or cause another risk. So maybe I should just view it in Eudora.

You're welcome...I rarely open in full screen but it's useful if you have a lot of older/previous emails within the current email and you want to see all of it...

I'm not sure I understand what you are saying...how do you do that?

Right click on the message and select "Send to Browser."

Yes, I get the warning. That's what made me wonder if loading into the browser is bad.

Oh good...


>>That's what made me wonder if loading into the browser is bad.

I just did a quick test with emails that had pdf attachments and while the email opened in FF, the attachment didn't. That said, I'm not sure about other attachments. One thing I just noticed is that I get just the text of the email when I use "Send to Browser"--none of the email headers display in FF...

I get the headers. The type of headers depends on which which view I click on in Eudora (full versus not full).

I think that if someone has Eudora set to not use Explorer technology to display, for purposes of not pulling extra stuff from the web site, then there would be an issue of sending to a browser. Maybe. Just guessing.

I don't get the headers even if I choose to see all the headers ("blah, blah, blah")...might be because I'm using FF2 to view...

I don't know what is...is it an option?
