Why would you want to use such an outdated and unsupported emailprogram as Edora?ï¿½ Instead, try Mozilla Thunderbird, which is largely based on Edora, and is completely compatible with JAWS 2020 and Windows 10.
Aside from SSL negotiations, which have been updated in the Hermes project, nothing about Eudora is obsolete. Its filters remain much more robust than anything in Thunderbird.

When Windows performs a major update, as is supposed to be the case for the soon to be released major update for Windows 10, before updating the system Windows normally creates a backup in a separate folder. When the update has been completed, you can check your system to see wich programs no longer exist following the update. Having done that, you can go to the Windows backup folder, and depending whether the system is a 32 or 64 bit operating system, you can copy/move the program folder to the same location in the Windows folder. Once you have done that, you can run the program, and, if necessary, make any changes to the program.
For me, when Windows notifies me of the new update, I will use Image For Windows, to make a backup of my system drive, just in case the update does not go according to plan. In that case, I can restore my system to its original state, and try updating again.

Subject: Re: Eudora
This is why using an outdated email program like Edora is a bad idea.
It may stop working with your email service provider at any time for no
apparent reason. Maybe it's just obsolete and is no longer supported by
the provider. And there is no guarantee that a feature update to
Windows 10 won't break it or even delete it, as it does to Outlook
Express. So for those of you who still swear by it, great. But don't be
surprised if it suddenly stops working or else you have to start jumping
through hoops to keep it working.

Yes, Eudora definitely does work.
I would so like to update Eudora instead of giving it up. I tried following
the instructions posted yesterday and did something wrong ... because Eudora
still doesn't work.
If anyone could write off list and talk me through the upgrade, it would be
great. BTW, with Eudora it is sooooo easy to find the address of a sender.
I will post my return, since it's a pain to find it in Outlook 2019.
