Well, I have tried "leave mail on server" (in the PD edition) and all
that happens is I get no mail transferred. What version of Eudora
CORRECTLY gets new mail down to the client, marking it as read on the

1. Eudora Light with "leave on server/delete from server" popup?

Is Eudora Light going to have the ability to delete selected messages
from the server anytime soon?   I tried the Eudora Pro demo and that
was the only new feature I used.. I don't need filters or any of that
stuff.  The ability to handle the server account is the only thing I
*personally* use.  Since I don't need all of the other features, I was hoping
this feature may show up in the Light version.  (I admittedly was
starting to lean towards getting the Pro version, but for this one feature and
the fact that I'd only use it at work made me realize that using the mush
mailer to manually nuke messages with a few scripts was a reasonable

I don't know if I missed this in the manual or anything, but it would
be great if there were key-equivalents instead of those popups.  For
example, command-d would be delete here and off the server, and command-shift-d
would be just delete here.. (The user could select which was the default.)

These opinions are mine, not Apple's.
