Hi Mark,

I wasn't following this thread too closely, but I thought I'd reply 
about the email.

I like using Eudora Open Source Edition. 

It has essentially the same UI as the old Eudora for Windows from years 
ago. It's also multiplatform, and runs on Windows, Mac, Linux. It does 
quoting; as you can see I quoted you below. Just highlight the text you 
want to quote and hit reply. If you just hit reply, it quotes the whole 
original message. You can change settings on how this gets done. You can 
also have multiple identities and signatures. For example, the address 
I'm writing from is customized so the list server will accept my email 
and the signature is customized to the list.

There are a few caveats:

* It's based on the Thunderbird code base. So, don't install it on top 
of a system with Thunderbird as the settings conflict.
* I thought it would do threading, but, I don't use it and I can't find 
it today in the menus.
* It's been at version 1.0 for over a year, so I don't know how much 
love the project is getting now. However, the old Eudora was very stable 
and this seems pretty solid as well. It does what I need.
* Documentation is a little weak. I think I have a PDF of the old Eudora 
5? user manual somewhere, maybe. Keep in mind though that this program 
and that are not identical and some features of the old Eudora didn't 
make it into the Open Source edition.

(PS - If you email me and don't get a quick response, don't be concerned.
I get about 300 emails per day from alternate energy mailing lists and
such.  I don't always see new messages very quickly.  If you need a
reply and have not heard from me in 1 - 2 weeks, send your message again.)
