Andrew Starr's Unofficial Eudora Site
What's New This Week:
- Many links, esp. to downloads, are broken. Apologies. Will work on it.
- Check out John Delacour's Eudora Scripts etc. page and Scripting Eudora page. The first page has many scripts written by Mr. Delacour, and the second page is a brief guide to writing scripts for Eudora.
Scripts and Scripting Tools:
Some scripts are in other categories on other pages, but useful ones that I can't figure out a good category for will go here.
Scripts for 3.x and above:
- Addressing Option Scripts by John Delacour. Contains scripts to "Reply to From Address" (i.e. for when you wish to override the reply-to address), "Mailto selected address" (i.e. send a message to an e-mail address you select in the middle of a message), "Reply To Selected Address" (For those who don't use "Burst" to burst digests; i.e. sends a reply to the current message, except addressed to the e-mail address you have selected).
- EMAILabdisk is a script designed for use in Mac labs where students use floppy disks to check their email. It prompts the user for their name, email address, and POP acount, and saves a custom Eudora Settings file and signature file to the floppy. This allows you to create a "template" settings file, and use script editor to customize the script for your lab.
- Eudora Launcher 1.5 is another AppleScript for creating Eudora disks. It includes everything that EMALabdisk does as well as support for all writable/ejectable media (floppies, Zip Disks, Jaz, etc.), and does not erase the disk so the user can use the disk for other than just email.
- Eudora Nickname IAD works in conjunction with Internet Address Detectors to let you add e-mail addresses to the Eudora Address Book.
- Eremita's Eudora Scripting is John Delacour's site.
- EU Find Duplicates by John Delacour will delete duplicate messages in Eudora mailboxes.
- EU MailboxReport by John Delacour will produce a full report listing the number of messages in each mailbox and in each folder at the next level down that contains mailboxes. If you have a longer hierarchy the script would need to be extended.
- Updated Palm Organizer Script will make it so that clicking on the email button in the free Palm Mac Pac, the update to Claris Organizer, which you can use even if you don't own a Palm. This script brings up a properly addressed in whatever e-mail application you use.
- Check Mail During the Day by Richard Long is a script thatsets certwin hours and days when automatic checks are done. For example. you can set Eudora to only perform automatic checks from 9am to 5pm on weekdays.
- Eudora Reply with IP. For those bold enough to run servers off their Macs with a dynamic IP address, this Applescript should help. People send you messages with a request for IP address in the subject line. You set Eudora to filter these messages to a mailbox called "IP." Every five minutes this applescript queues a response message with the IP address of your Mac. It then deletes the original e-mail message and the copy of the already-sent response.
- Fwdora script allows you automatically append (fwd) or Fwd: at the beginning of the subject line when you forward a message.
- Hierarchical Mailbox Report by Nicolas Le Clerc generates a hierarchical report of your mailboxes.
- ReadHTML by John Delacour. If an incoming message has a proper MIME type text/html header, Eudora 3.1 has an "Open in Browser" option. This script will take incoming HTML messages not properly headered and open them in Netscape. (Could be adapted for other browsers.)
- Render in MIE will display the selected text in Internet Explorer. As with ReadHTML and ShowHTML (both for Netscape), Render in MIE is handy for when an incoming message is not properly labeled as text/html.
- ShowHTML by Wesley Ray Hall is an improvement upon ReadHTML, fixing some problems Mr. Hall was having with the original.
-Face Extractor v.9 script will send an X-Face header from a Eudora message to be displayed in Saving Face. Also requires the scripting addition File IO. For now, the script assumes your hard drive is named "Macintosh HD". See also the X-Face FAQ
- ReplyTo lets you insert a "Reply-To:" header on a message-by-message basis with the Reply-To: address of your choice. Note: I recommend that you use one of the plugins that allows you to enter extra headers and make the first extra header "X-Sender: Eudora Pro 3.0 for Macintosh!" or anything else not blank. This script will change the header, send the message, then replace the header to what you have entered.
- X-Flies: lets you insert any header (standard or x-header) on a message-by-message basis. This script will enter the header, send the message, then delete the header (restoring anything you had as an extra header originally).
- ReturnReceipt lets you generate a return receipt request in Eudora Light. Note: I recommend that you use one of the plugins that allows you to enter extra headers and make the first extra header "X-Sender: Eudora Pro 3.0 for Macintosh!" or anything else not blank. This script will change the header, send the message, then replace the header to what you have entered.
- Send HTML puts in a header that makes it so you can include HTML code in your messages that will be received as HTML by recipients using an HTML-aware e-mail client.
- AppleScripts for Eudora by Markus Frischknecht.
- Scripts Plug-In 3.0b2 by Bob Fronabarger lets you access scripts of your choice from the "Special" pulldown menu. Requires Eudora 3.1 or above.
- Eudora Broadcast lets the user send a message to every nickname of one or several nickname files.
- InlinePICT sets Eudora 3.x to display incoming PICT attachments under 90K as inline images at the end of messages.
- MailURL by Sander Tekelenburg "offers a quick and easy way to tell a friend about the page you're currently watching in your web browser. It creates a new message in Eudora, placing the title of the page in the subject header, and the URL of it in the body."
- URL Highlight Color lets you change the URL highlight color. There are versions of the plugin that will automatically set the highlight color to a specific color (black, white, red, green, bluer, or matching your default text color) and a version that lets you set the color to any RGB color, or your default text color, in the settings area in Eudora. Instead of using a plugin, you could also use John Delacour's AppleScript (included in this download) to choose the color from the color wheel or color slider bars. The AppleScript requires Jon's Commands.
- Slick! lets you change the color of the horizontal and vertical lines used in mailbox displays. Also, if you have changed your background color and Eudora has thus changed the line color automatically, there is a script to change it back.
- Cucumber automatically bursts a mail digest into an existing mailbox.
- Reply-To-Digest by Michael Schuerig allows you to reply to an individual message (and to its sender) in a digest. [More Information]
- Yadora contains two scripts for those who use both YA-Newswatcher and Eudora. One transfers YA-NW messages to your Eudora in box, the other lets you make Eudora nicknames from YA-NW messages. Thanks to John Delacour for the crucial parts of the nickname script.
- AutoLaunch is one of many great tools from St. Clair Software. It will run the application (and thus script) of your choice when your computer is idle for the number of minutes you choose, or when you move the cursor to whichever corner you preset. For example, instead of having Eudora check every x minutes, you could have AutoLaunch set to run a script to check mail either if your computer is idle for a bit or you move the cursor to the corner you chose.
- I would suggest searching Amazon.com for "Applescript".
- OSA menu gives you a pulldown menu next to balloon help menu that makes it easy to run scripts for whichever application is currently the frontmost application.
- Jon's Commands gives your Mac the ability to use extra commands in AppleScripts.
