Eudora .ini Settings


EUDORA.INI Settings File

The EUDORA.INI file is where Eudora keeps most of the settings. It is a standard Windows INI file, and can be edited with any text editor.
Note: Since Windows caches information from INI files in memory while the program is running, you should never change the EUDORA.INI file while Eudora is in use. If you need to make a change, first quit Eudora, then edit the file, and then restart Eudora.

The EUDORA.INI file is divided into a number of sections, the following of which appear by default:

  • [Settings]
  • [Mappings]
  • [Window Position]
  • [Tool Bar]
  • [DirectoryServices]
  • [Debug]
Only the items that are not configurable from the Options dialog are listed below. (See the special note about the [Tool Bar] section below.)

Optional Sections

The following sections will appear in the INI file only when the appropriate conditions are met or the appropriate items created:

  • [Personalities] The [Personalities] section appears only when you have created alter-nate e-mail accounts (personalities)
  • [Stationery] The [Stationery] section appears only when you have created stationery files
  • [Open Windows] The [Open Windows] section appears only when there are windows currently open in Eudora
  • [WazooBars] The [WazooBars] section appears only when normal Eudora windows are currently open or minimized on the desktop (and thus buttons appear on the Eudora taskbar, which is what this section controls)
  • [Recent File List] The [Recent File List] section appears only when files have been opened since the most recent Eudora startup
NOTE: We strongly urge that you do not change the values in these optional sections of the INI file, and rather make any changes from the interface. For example, personalities can be created and edited from the Personalities window, and stationery can be created and edited from the Stationery window. Both windows are available from the Tools menu.

The values of the settings in each of these optional sections reflect the current values of the objects or conditions: there are no "default" values per se.

Name and Location of the INI File

The default name for the file is EUDORA.INI and the default location is in the mail directory. But the name and location of the file can be changed.
To specify an INI file that is different from the EUDORA.INI and is not in the mail directory, add a second parameter to the command line in the Program Item for Eudora. For example:
Command Line: c:\apps\eudora.exe c:\mymail c:\inis\myeudora.ini
To use an INI file that is different from the EUDORA.INI but is in the mail directory:
Command Line: c:\apps\eudora.exe c:\mymail myeudora.ini
Command Line: c:\apps\eudora.exe c:\mymail\myeudora.ini
This is a way to have multiple settings for one set of mailboxes, nicknames, etc. For example, you may have multiple e-mail accounts in which you receive mail, but you want to collect mail from all of the accounts in one place. You could set up separate Program Items for each account (each having a different INI file on the command line). Then, switching between accounts would be as simple as double-clicking on a Program Item.
For an even trickier specification: If the first parameter is an INI filename without a path, then the mail directory is searched by the normal process of checking the EUDORA environment variable, then using the executable directory.
Examples:
SET EUDORA=c:\mymail
Command Line: c:\apps\eudora.exe myeudora.ini
will use c:\mymail as the mail directory and c:\mymail\myeudora.ini as the INI file.
SET EUDORA=myeudora.ini
Command Line: c:\apps\eudora.exe
will use c:\apps as the mail directory and c:\apps\myeudora.ini as the INI file.

Default INI file

When an entry in the EUDORA.INI file is not found, Eudora will look in the DEUDORA.INI file located in the same directory as the EUDORA.EXE file. The [Mappings] section of the DEUDORA.INI file behaves as though it were appended to the end of the [Mappings] section of the EUDORA.INI file.

IMAPPreviewPane


1


Controls whether or not IMAP mailboxes have a preview pane. On slower networks, it may be desirable to turn off the preview pane for IMAP mailboxes, but still have the preview pane for local mailboxes. You can do that by keeping the normal Preview Pane option turned on, but turning this setting off (setting to 0).


IMAPRemoveOnDelete


0


Controls whether or not a message in an IMAP mailbox that is deleted will be removed from the server mailbox immediately.

140


Width of the "Date Visited" column in pixels.


LinkHistoryDrawIcons


1


Whether or not Link History should draw icons in the "Type" column. If changed, change will not take affect until next launch. 0 = do not draw icons; 1 = draw icons. When icon drawing is off, the type is displayed as text instead - either "Ad" or "Web Site".


LinkHistoryLinkMaxAgeInDays


14


Maximum age of a link in days since it last has been used in any way: visited, displayed (ad only), had its Date Visited status modified by the user (i.e. via right click context menu in LH). LH will purge any links older than this value once a day. After purging, Eudora will remove any orphaned thumbnail bitmaps from the LinkHistory directory.

MainLexFiles



Main dictionary files. British dictionaries can be used by changing this to british.tlx,british.clx.


MainWindowState

The state of the Main Window (normal = 1, minimized = 2, or maximized = 3). The state is set when Eudora closes, and the Main Window is set to this state the next time Eudora starts up.


MaxConcurrentTasks


10


The maximum number of background tasks that can be running at the same time. Note that if you are connected over a modem (dialup networking connection) only one network task at a time will be run, otherwise network performance would suffer greatly.


MaxMenus


30000


The maximum number of popup menus for mailboxes. These are equivalent to mailbox folders (i.e. local mailbox folders that contain other mailboxes, or IMAP mailboxes that contain other mailboxes). Used when Eudora can't be started due to the large number of popup menus created, which is limited by Windows. This will allow you to start up Eudora and run it long enough to remove some mailboxes so that fewer menus will be needed. Running for extended periods of time with this switch in Eudora.ini is not recommended.

MDNSendAddress


0


Controls whether your return address should be used in the MAIL FROM command for return receipts. RFC 2298 says that it should be empty in order to prevent mail loops, but some SMTP servers reject that due to bad spam-prevention heuristics.


Mode


0


Eudora's mode: 0 for Sponsored mode, 1 for Light, 2 for Paid.


NetscapeURLDDE


1


If this setting is on, when clicking on a URL in a message and Netscape Navigator is running, then Eudora will send the URL to that open Navigator window. If this setting is off (i.e. set to zero), then clicking on a URL in a message will send the URL to the system, which will invoke the default browser. Some Navigator users may want to turn this setting off if they like the behavior of opening a new window (as opposed to reusing an existing browser window) when clicking on a URL in Eudora.


NetworkOpenTimeout


60


The number of seconds Eudora will wait for a response to opening a connection before it gives up.


NewMailUpdateFrequency


25


Number of inital messages that have to be spooled before message processing begins.


NoAutoResponseHeaders


errors-to:,list-


allows for better detecting of mailing lists to which you should not auto-respond. As a default, "errors-to:,list-" is the value. Add any other headers which will identify it as a list (hence will not auto-respond via filters).


NoAutoSendPrecedence


list,bulk


When filtering incoming messages with precedence headers of list or bulk, do not automatically create new outgoing messages.


NoSplashScreen


0


If on, the opening splash screen will not be displayed.


Offline


0


Set to 1 to temporarily set Eudora offline; it will not perform automatic timed mail checks when offline.


OfflineLinkAction


0


Eudora displays the Offline Link Dialog if you click on an http: link while offline (not connected to the Internet). That dialog box lets you choose what action should be taken regarding that link the next time Eudora is online: ask you if you want to launch the link, launch it without asking, bookmark the link in your link history, or remind you later. The dialog box now has a checkbox that will make the action you choose the default from then on, which means you won't see the Offline Link Dialog any more. It defaults to 0 = ask, and the other values are 1 = launch, 2 = bookmark, and 3 = remind.


OwnerLok


1


If this is non-zero, an OWNER.LOK file will be created on startup which helps to prevent possible corruption if multiple instances of Eudora are used on the same set of mailboxes.


PasswordOKWordList


lock busy,own it, of memory, assign stream, ush of temp, being unlock, hangup,timeout, not owned,quota, drop name, recognition mode,accessible by others, accessible by others,regular file,flock,maillock, few minute,locked


A comma-separated list of words that if found in the response text from an error from the POP PASS command that will not cause the password to be erased (works in conjunction with the BadPasswordString entry above). POP servers sometimes fail after sending the PASS command for reasons other than your password was incorrect, and this entry allows greater control over when Eudora will decide to ask you again for your password.


PhReturn



A string that is appended to every Ph command before sending to the Ph server. For example, "PhReturn=return all" would return all fields of the records returned by the query, and "PhReturn=type=person" would return all matches to the query with the additional filter that the record is a person.


POPPort


110


Default port number for the POP service (pop3).


PreviewHeaders


To:,Subject:,Cc:, Bcc:,X-Attachments:


A comma-separated list of headers that should be shown in the preview pane. The matching is done on a prefix basis, so any header that begins with one of these values will be shown.


PreviewHeadersMaxLines


4


This is designed to keep preview pane headers to a minimum. This is most often used to control large To: or Cc: headers where someone inserts a large number of individual addresses.


PreviewSplitterPos


0


If non-zero, then if a mailbox hasnít already specified a position for the splitter between the message list and the preview pane, then the splitter will be positioned this many pixels from the top of the mailbox window.


PreviewTableEnd


</table>\ r\n


HTML markup for the end of the table thatís used to display the headers in a preview pane.


PreviewTableRowEnd


</td></tr>\r\n


HTML markup for the end of the table row thatís used to display the headers in a preview pane. Each header is displayed in a separate row of the table.


PreviewTableRowStart


<tr bgcolor=%s text=%s><td>\r\n


HTML markup for the start of the table row thatís used to display the headers in a preview pane. Each header is displayed in a separate row of the table.

<table cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 width=100%% bgcolor=%s text=%s>\r\n


HTML markup for the beginning of the table thatís used to display the headers in a preview pane.


PrintHeaders


1


When on (1), printed messages get headers and footers.


ProgressIdle

Number of seconds a foreground tasks continues before the Progress window is shown. This prevents a distracting flash of the Progress window for a task that may take a long time, but in this instance only takes a short time.


QuoteEnd



The string that gets inserted after the original text of a forwarded message. A newline is added before the string.


QuotePrefix


>


The string that precedes all lines of the original message in a forwarded message


QuoteStart



The string that gets inserted before the original text of a forwarded message. A newline is added after the string.


RasUseExistingConnection


1


QUALCOMM Incorporated When switching from a task from one personality to a task of another personality and the two personalities have different dialup networking connection entries, whether or not the already connected dialup networking connection should be maintained or a new dialup networking connection made. It may be necessary to turn this setting off (set to zero) if you have personalities that check mail on servers that are behind firewalls, and require that you dial in directly in order to connect to the mail server.

StripDuplicateAddresses


1


When replying to a message, controls whether or not duplicate copies of your e-mail address will be removed from the To: and Cc: headers. This helps to avoid buildup of your email address in email conversations. StripDuplicateAddresses has been shown by the ADA to be an effective decay preventive dentifrice that can be of significant value when used as directed in a conscientiously applied program of oral hygiene and regular professional care. Four out of five dentists prefer StripDuplicateAddresses over the leading products at preventing email address buildup.

Where xxx, yyy are timezone abbreviations like PST, PDT, CDT, and nnn is the offset in hours WEST of GMT (those that are east of GMT should enter a negative number here). xxx is the timezone during Standard Time and yyy is the timezone during Daylight Savings Time. If you do not change your clocks during Daylight Savings Time, leave yyy blank. Here are some samples: TimeZone=PST8PDT TimeZone=MET-1

If you donít specify a TimeZone entry, then a Date: header will not be put in outgoing messages, which is fine for most because their mail server will insert the correct Date: header. If you donít get messages bounced because of a missing Date: header, then leave the TimeZone entry alone.


TocDateLeeway


2


Number of seconds that the date on a mailbox .TOC file can be behind the .MBX file that Eudora will not flag as being out of date. Helpful for network file systems.


ToolbarDisplayFix


0


Setting this to 1 causes the icons to be imaged from a device-independent bitmap to resolve issues with video drivers that cannot display Eudora's toolbar icons. Setting to 2 limits the toolbar to the icons which are in the default toolbar.


TypeToSelectSubject


0


When on, typing characters in the summaries of a mailbox window will attempt to match words in the Subject field. (Default behavior is to match Who field)


UnreadExpires


5


The number of days after which a message is no longer used to determine if a mailbox has unread messages in it.


URLHelper



The full path of the application used to launch URLs.


URLHighlight


1


Display URLs in blue underline style.


UseBidentAlways


1


If this is set to 0, then the Microsoft Viewer under Tools: Options: Viewing Mail will be unchecked. If set to 1, then the Microsoft Viewer will be checked.


UseMyDirServWindowPosition


0


Setting this to 1 tells Eudora to let the Directory Services window display with the left-hand side completely hidden. Otherwise, Eudora will make sure the left-hand side is showing the first time you open the Directory Services window after launching Eudora.


UseMyFilterWindowPosition


0


Setting this to 1 tells Eudora to let the Filters window display with the left-hand side completely hidden. Otherwise, Eudora will make sure the left-hand side is showing the first time you open the Filters window after launching Eudora.


UseMyNicknamesWindowPosition


0


Setting this to 1 tells Eudora to let the Address Book window display with the left-hand side completely hidden. Otherwise, Eudora will make sure the left-hand side is showing the first time you open the Address Book window after launching Eudora.


UsePOPCAPA


1


Whether or not Eudora should send the CAPA command to the POP server. Used only to see if the server supports the MANGLE command modifier. See UsePOPMangle.


UsePOPMangle


0


Whether or not Eudora should use the MANGLE modifier to the TOP command in a POP connection. MANGLE can produce some better results for messages that are skipped because they are large, giving a summary for the attachments in the message.


UsePOPSend


0


If UsePOPSend is on, Eudora will send mail using the POP3 extended command XTND XMIT. Since this is an optional command for POP3, many POP3 servers do not support this command (Berkeley's popper, however, does). There are pros and cons to using POP3 to send your mail. It provides a level of security since it requires a username/password pair to send mail messages, unlike SMTP. It is faster than SMTP, especially when checking for new mail at the same time. It doesn't check for valid recipients until the entire message is sent, and some implementations (Berkeley's popper, for example) won't tell you which recipients are invalid and will send the message to the valid recipients anyway.


UseQuickTime


1


If off, then Eudora will never attempt to use QuickTime to display images. Useful for situations where QuickTime is causing instability in the system.


UserChangeLex


uchange.tlx


Filename of user-defined list of words to change when spell checking.


UserIgnoreLex


uignore.tlx


Filename of user-defined list of words to ignore when spell checking.


UserSuggestLex


usuggest.tlx


Filename of user-defined list of words to suggest when spell checking.


WarnMapiAutoSend


1


If this setting is 1 (on), Eudora provides a warning dialog when a Simple MAPI client tries to send a message through Eudora without showing any UI to the user. The option was also added to the Tools/Options/MAPI dialog.


WebLinkReminderLaterNumMinutes


360


When you get a link reminder, if you select Remind Me Later, the minimum wait until the next reminder.


WhenOpeningCompositionWindowSelectAfter


0


When on, messages from the Out mailbox open with the insertion point at the end of the message.


WhenOpeningCompositionWindowSelectAll


0


When on, messages from the Out mailbox open with the original text selected.


WhenOpeningCompositionWindowSelectBefore


1


When on, messages from the Out mailbox open with the insertion point at the top of the message.


WhenReplyingSelectAll


0


When on, reply messages are opened with the original text selected.


WhenReplyingSeparateWithLine


0


When on, causes a blank line to be inserted between the cursor and the quoted message when either WhenReplyingTypeBefore or WhenReplyingTypeAfter is being used.


WhenReplyingTypeAfter


0


When on, (If WhenReplyingSelectAll and WhenReplyingTypeBefore are off) reply messages open with the cursor below the quoted text.


WhenReplyingTypeBefore


1


When on, (If WhenReplyingSelectAll is off) reply messages open with the cursor above the quoted text.


WholeSummaryLabelColor


1


When on, the entire summary of a message that has a label is drawn in that label's color. When off, only the text in the Label column is displayed in the label's color.


WordWrapColumn


76


When the "Word wrap" switch is on, this is the column in which lines in outgoing messages are wrapped.


WordWrapMax


80


When the "Word wrap" switch is on, this is the length at which a line in an outgoing message is considered too long and must be wrapped.


WordWrapOnScreen


0


If this is on (set to non-zero), then the composition window will automatically wrap text on the screen at the number of characters specified in WordWrapColumn, regardless of the width of the window.


[Mappings]

This is a sample [Mappings] section. It is not a default for Eudora if you have a missing or empty [Mappings] section. The [Mappings] section contains information for mapping between PC file extensions, Macintosh creator and type, and MIME type and subtype for attachment files (in that order). Entries marked "in" work on only incoming messages, and entries marked "out" work on only outgoing messages. Entries marked "both" work on both incoming and outgoing messages.
For a more detailed explanation, see the "MIME and Mappings" section of the Eudora Reference Manual.

[Tool Bar]

This section reflects the current settings of the main Eudora toolbar. If you create additional Eudora toolbars, then additional [Tool Bar] sections will appear in the INI file.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that you do not change any of the settings in the [Tool Bar] section(s) of the INI file, and that you instead make any changes to any Eudora toolbar from the toolbar customization dialog (Customize dialog). This dialog is accessed by right-clicking anywhere on the toolbar and selecting Customize... from the popup menu. For more information, see "Customizing the Main Toolbar" in the Eudora Reference Manual.

[Decorations]

The [Decorations] section controls ways to customize your Eudora application windows.

BackgroundColor


0


Specifies an RGB triple (in hexadecimal) for the color to use for the "workspace" area of the main Eudora window. Can be used in conjunction with the BackgroundImage entry for choosing a color better suited for the image being displayed. Ex-amples: white is "FFFFFF", black is "000000", and blue is "0000FF". This setting does *not* re-quire QuickTime to be installed.


BackgroundImage


0


Specifies an image to be displayed in the "work-space" area of the main Eudora window (called "Application Background" in the Appearance tab of the Control Panel->Display options). It needs to be specified as a full path name. This setting requires QuickTime to be installed.


[DirectoryServices]

The [DirectoryServices] section controls the use of the Directory Services window (accessed from Eudora's Tools menu) and its associated databases. For more information on Directory Services, see its dedicated section in the Eudora User Manual.
NOTE: Of the entries listed below, only those marked with an asterisk (*) are user-settable.

Entry


Default Value


Description


OldKeepOnTopConverted



What in pre-4.0 versions of Eudora used to be [Settings]$\mid$AddressKeepForeground is now KeepOnTop in this section. KeepOnTop saves the check state of the "Keep On Top" check button in the Directory Services window. Eudora uses this entry (OldKeepOnTopConverted) to determine if the AddressKeepForeground entry from a pre-4.0 version of Eudora has been mapped to the current version. When Eudora 4.x is run for the first time, it sets the KeepOnTop entry (described below) equal to the value of AddressKeepForeground. In addition, it also sets this entry equal to 1 so that the next time Eudora is run, it reads the check state from KeepOnTop rather than from AddressKeepForeground.


PanesY*



This entry reflects the height of the Directory Services window when Eudora was last shut down.


LeftPaneX*



This entry reflects the width of the left pane of the Directory Services window when Eudora was last shut down.


RightPaneX*



This entry reflects the width of the right pane of the Directory Services window when Eudora was last shut down.


KeepOnTop*



This entry reflects the check state of the "Keep On Top" check button in the Directory Services window when Eudora was last shut down.


LDAP:ldap.bigfoot.com*



This entry reflects the check state of the LDAP database "ldap.bigfoot.com" when Eudora was last shut down. The check state of other LDAP databases is reflected in similar entries.


Ph:ph.bigfoot.com*



This entry reflects the check state of the Ph database "ph.bigfoot.com" when Eudora was last shut down. The check state of other Ph databases is reflected in similar entries.


Eudora Address Book:Eudora Nicknames*



This entry reflects the check state of the Eudora Address Book database "Eudora Nicknames" when Eudora was last shut down. The check state of other Eudora Address Book databases is reflected in similar entries.


Finger:hostname.domain.com*



This entry reflects the check state of the Finger database "hostname.domain.com" when Eudora was last shut down. The check state of other Finger databases (or daemons) is reflected in similar entries.


DIRSERV-Major



This entry reflects the major version of DirServ.dll that was last registered.
