|Eudora Pro 220.127.116.11 on Windows 7 x64 dog slow first time checking||Terabyte||2/12/10 10:50 AM|
So I've gone to Win7 x64 Ultimate. My e-mail client of choice is Eudora Pro 18.104.22.168 (last build from Qualcomm). It's able to hold my 1.4 million e-mails (Outlook, even 10's beta, barfs at even half of them without creating a dozen PST files) and the new one with Thunderbird as the backend isn't ready for prime time yet, so I'm staying with Eudora 7. The problem is Eudora will check my 20+ POP3 accounts from various companies with no problems, but the 2 Gmail accounts I check take several minutes the first time and then eventually work. Subsequent checks are blazing fast and work as expected. MS blames this on GMail's encryption but won't look further becuase Eudora is getting old. I have tried Eudora in XP Pro SP3 compatiblity mode with no luck. I've seen several other posts but none with a solution. Anyone figure out a fix?
Please Also Include:
Operating system Windows 7 x64 Ultiamte, 8GB RAM, Dell Precision 390 Workstation, 2.4 Ghz Core2Duo
Program and version you use to access Gmail: Eudora Pro 22.214.171.124 (fully registered)
Your antivirus software: Symantec EndPoint Protection 11.05
Any extensions, toolbars or plug-ins:NONE

Wow, all this time I thought I was alone with this problem. I have the same Eudora Pro build and I wish the follks who have taken over the Open Source development of Eudora would hurry up and release an improved version. I don't remember if I had this problem when I ran it in Vista but certainly in Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bits I'm seeing this occurrence on Dell Studio 17 laptop. Have you found a fix ?

I just don't use Gmail any more. Google hasn't been of any help either. Also, this problem does NOT exist on Vista Ultimate SP2. My machine triple boots between XP Pro SP3, Vista Ultimate SP2, and Win7 Ultimate and the only one Eudora has a problem with is Win7. Microsoft ignored bug reports on this during the beta even as a technical (not public) beta tester. Really sucks that we have to deal with this and Google doesn't care, but then again, they don't respond to anything else either like the file run options when downloading in Chrome.

The most annoying issue I have with Win 7 is how it (even after MS has released countless patches) does automatically refresh when you add or remove an item off the desktop and/or windows explorer. Having to hit F5 periodically after a task just gets so labourious. My Eudora doesn't suffer this lag on XP PRO but then again the lag I experience in W7 is about 30 seconds first time it launches.

I have no problems with Win7 refreshing my desktop or in Explorer. I'd check to see that you have the latest video driver for your video card. nVidia has come a long way with their Win7 drivers in the past 6 months. ATI has as well.

Also occurs with 32 bit win7. Not only with google account - while some like my .edu accounts respond within seconds as for win xp, both google and att.net accounts take (literally) 5 minutes on first access. Subsequent access is fast. I've tried with the latest version 6 (22.214.171.124) and most recent (7) Qualcom builds, same effect. Have put eudora.exe into the Win 7 firewall exceptions list but to no avail. This is not a hardware problem, also occurs on my other computers. Have also tried different ports in Eudora to no avail. Also run eudora in different compatability modes, no change. My IT guy is stumped. Any creative ideas appreciated.

The latest version of Qualcomm Eudora is not 6.x, it's 188.8.131.52. I've also tried all the settings you've tried too. It doens't happen in an XP Virtual machine so I'm tempted to run Eudora in XP Mode, but I have about 10GB of e-mail so I'd be concerned about performance. I guess given Google never responds to any other concerns I'm just not surprised that they don't bother to respond here. I'm ready to dump Google all together. Their arrogance and apathy will be their downfall.
Google, do you even care that users are having problems?

I didn't upgrade to eudora 7 until I upgraded to win 7 so thought version 7 might be the problem. It's not. Running eudora in windows xp service pack 3 compatability mode also doesn't help, nor does running as administrator, nor does setting eudora check mail options to never use secure sockets when receiving......

I was talking about XP Mode, not Compatabity Mode (which I find rarely fixes compatablity issues). You have to have Win7 Pro or Ultimate or Enterprise to run XP Mode. More on this here:
It's a free pre-configured virtual XP Pro SP3 system to run legacy apps on and you can run them seemlessly from the Win7 start menu, though startup times are much longer than normal apps.

Terabyte, I have the same problem. It's maddening. For what it's worth, it was slow under XP Pro too, even checking my POP accounts for the first time. Under Vista, it's maddening. Eudora seems to be a real cycle hog in this environment as well. I struggle with it for the same reasons you do, and just keep praying for a better open source Eudora. I tried "Eudora 8", as it was called, and dumped it like a dead skunk when I found out it was not an upgrade but a re-write with different features.

Finally there's a solution, and it's relatively simple. Go to the web site below and at the bottom of the hex editor directions there is a zip file with the file qcssl.dll embedded in it. Replace the same-named file in the eudora directory with this and voila - the wait is (mostly) over. Cut my 8 minute wait to 30 seconds. You can read the rationale behind the 1-byte fix at the web site.
