Mailto Software for Eudora
NOTE: if you have Eudora Pro for Windows 3.0 or later, you don't need the Mailto software;
instead, use these instructions
on setting up Eudora to intercept mailto: URLs on web pages.
Mailto Watcher lets you automatically open a Eudora message
when you use a "mailto" URL in Netscape.
When you see an active e-mail address in Netscape, it probably has a
mailto URL behind it. That lets you click on the address to
automatically open an e-mail client and create a new mail message with
the correct address. With Mailto Watcher, Eudora is opened (if
necessary), and a new composition window is created with the e-mail
address placed in the To field.
Eudora Pro 3.1 or later:
Eudora Pro 2.x and 3.0.x
If you're using Eudora Pro for Macintosh version 3.1 or later,
download this applescript (~1k) and run it. A window will open; simply follow the path to your local Netscape application and double click.
Netscape will now use Eudora when you click on a mailto link.
Eudora mailto helper (d5) is a slight modification of Eudora GURL handler that works with
Eudora Pro 2.x and 3.0.x, that
Eudora mailto helper was written by Christian Huldt.
- Does about the same thing as Eudora GURL handler
- Can be registered with netscape ( and internet explorer?) for the
- Has the ability to handle multiple mail settings (e.g. for shared
macs) with or without the scriptable Finder.

If you are using a serial dialup connection, you need a dialup script
to log into your service provider's mail server. You can write a script
yourself, or check our ftp site's dialup directories, where we have a number of Windows and
Macintosh login scripts for various service providers.
NOTE: Before you embark on writing scripts, be sure you need them. A serial dialup connection
means that you don't have SLIP or PPP connectivity. If you can use a web browser
with your account, for example, you don't have a serial dialup connection,
and you don't need scripts.
