Per recommendations, I turned Appearance Manager Off.

In this configuration Eudora 4.33 won't work.

I went and got Eudora Light 3.1.3 and tried it. It does work. It allows you to leave mail on the server but it does not allow you to selectively remove it. This is not as good as 4.33 where I could make sure the spam never touched my main machine.

It was interesting to configure but carefully reading the instructions and very literally following them, it configured up.

The one that got me was having to put a user name @ the POP account. In the other version it was just the POP account.

No nice buttons with this one, but it does nave filters and no advertisement pane.

Hope this helps someone tryhing for Appearance Manager Offr and Eudora as an email client.

If a program requires Appearance, there is no way to get it to work without Appearance. Likewise, if a program requires Carbon Lib (WamCom, Netscape 7.2) there is no way to get it running under System 7 at all, at least not that I know of, and I doubt there is some way that I don't know of.

Email and Web browsing are still quite unsatisfactory under System 7. The best classic browser IMHO is Netscape 7.2. WamCom is slower and older and not quite as polished as NS 7.2.

With the open source availability of both Mozilla, Web Kit, and KHTML code, you'd think somebody somewhere would build a modern browser for Mac OS 7, 8 and 9. Even if it lacked a lot of features of OS X and Windows browsers, just so long as it displayed pages quickly and accurately I would be satisfied.

As a side note, the only good email client under System 7 that works without Appearance is that built into Netscape 4.8, which is also probably the best overall System 7 browser.
