Hi...

I hope I have posted in the correct forum.

I am trying to figure out how to send and receive gmail on my upgraded Color Classic. I have a CC II logic board, and I am in the process of building up a a Mystic 575 logic board upgrade.

I have not decided on the OS as of yet, but i am leaning towards 7.6. I will probably end up some place between 7.1 and 8.1

I started running Eudora in the early 1990s. I finally moved to web based email about 4 or 5 years ago (kicking and screaming).

It occurred to me that I could probably run a early version of Eudora on my Color Classic.
After Qualcomm gave up on Eudora (the last Windows version was 7.1 and I think the last apple version was 6.2) you could go here and down what ever version you wanted for free:

But it looks like that "wayback" link will not let you down load any more.

Can anyone tell me if I can down load Eudora off the web for free, and if so, which version would run under a apple OS between about 7.1 and 8.1?

If not Eudora, can anyone suggest a way to send and receive gmail on my Color Classic - perhaps other software is available?

Thanks in advance.

mraroid3764,

Just curious.

Is there any particular reason that you are winding up sending double posts in one message?

I did not know I did that. Maybe not enough or too much coffee??? Is this the only time it happened, or has it happened before?

I will look more closely in the future to see what I did wrong. Thank you for letting me know.
