I've been using Eudora since version 2.0 back in 199...5? Can't remember. Anyway... it's not so great at IMAP, Qualcomm dropped support back about a decade ago, and there are mounting issues running it on Windows. So I'm finally taking the leap.

One thing I miss, other than the non-Account based folder setup (multiple "Personalities" can be created in Eudora, and their emails can be Filtered to any folder, anywhere) is the ability to right-click on an email in mailbox view (all emails listed) and Click "Create Filter", which takes information in that email and pre-fills in the fields, eg; the From, To and Subject info. Saves me from having to write all that stuff in.

Any possibility of having that added to the context sensitive menu when you right-click on an email?

Thanks,

Mik

Try the "quickfilters" addon.

Do you mean the little tool button at the end of the line that starts with Get Messages, Write, Chat, etc? Yeah, I have that. I'm looking to add Filters that automatically move emails to specific folders as they come in. This QuickFilters button just looks like a way to filter the emails in your current window. Confusing to use the word Filter in both places.

No.
I got "QuickFilters: Create Filter from Message ..." in the context menu of every mail. I guess it is mostly a simplified UI for "Message -> Create Filter from Message".
