(I spent hours trying to fix my brother-in-law's version of OE to print and never succeeded.) Eudora has one feature that totally blows OE out of the water: automatic, as-you-type spell checking. I've spent so much time fixing the systems of friends, family, and neighbors that used OE that I would rather put up with my daily crash than switch. As to the size of the application, you forgot to examine the 17 extensions installed by OE. :O -STAZ ~)~ A Mac bigot to the death!
