Eudora 8.0.0 Beta 2
ScamWatch combats "phishing" schemes that use disguised URL's to gather personal information. Eudora now detects if the URL in the link differs suspiciously from the host name and warns you to exercise caution before making the connection.
Version 8 is now open source and based on Thunderbird. The project's intention was to join the EudoraÂ® user experience with the Mozilla platform. The developers intended to produce a version of Eudora, which is open source and based on Mozilla and Thunderbird. It's *not* their intention to compete with Thunderbird; rather, they wanted to complement it. As such, the team at Eudora are committed to preserving the Eudora experience and also maintaining maximum compatibility with Thunderbird. The overall goal is to continue to build around a single development community for Thunderbird and Eudora.

Using Thunderbird 3.0a1pre trunk code as of 2007/10/19:
The main change to Eudora is that it is now based on the trunk code of
Thunderbird: version 3.0a1pre. Some of the main new features of the trunk
Thunderbird are the tabs interface for mailboxes and messages (right-click and
select "Open in New Tab"), and the integration with the Mac OS X address book
(see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=203927 for details).
