Overcome Email Overload with Eudora 5
Becuase it is much easier to modify a rule that someone else made instead of
creating a new one for yourself, I have created filter files that you can
Note that if you download filters that mention folders and nicknames
that you don't have, the worst that will happen is that you will
get warning notices that the folder doesn't exist and that the filters
won't do anything when you think they should. (That's why you need
to customize them!)
- Quit out of Eudora.
- Download the
Mac OS or
Windows version of the filters.
For the Windows version, you will need to right-click on the link, then select
Save Link As... (Netscape) or Save Target As...
If you can't find it after you download it, use your
operating system to search for the appropriate file on your hard drive:
Filters.pce or macRestricted.sit
- Uncompress the file if it isn't already uncompressed. You
may need to install Stuffit
Expander if you use a Mac.
- Put the file in the right place.
If you download a Mac OS version, you must put the downloaded file
same folder that has your Eudora Settings file and mailboxes, replacing the
file named Eudora Filters. (You may want to move your old one to
someplace safe first.)
If you download the Windows version, you need to rename the file to
Filters.pce -- if it isn't called that already.
- Restart Eudora.
- Customize the filters that need customizing (unless you
downloaded the restricted version).
