"So Why Don't You Think It's Not Finished?"

May 03, 2006  |  By Irritated_User

 |  Version: RSS Feeds Aggregator for Eudora 1.2

Pros

RSS Feeds Aggregator is certainly finished enough for me to use. I use it regularly.

What's good about it is that it's a stable and reliable plugin which adds significant function to Eudora. (It's one of a growing list tools that's essential to keep Eudora afloat, without which it's belly-up time for this antiquated dinosaur of a mailer. Eudora is now so far behind the eight ball when compared to other mailers that only us legacy users-albeit the millions of us-need worry about this or any other Eudora plugin.)

This product adds comprehensive and fully integrated RSS and Atom feeds functionality to the Eudora mail client which saves Eudora users from having to install separate RSS and Atom feed programs. The functions include:

Allow users to give names and aliases to feeds.

Provision for addressing feeds and keeping URLs stored within an editable table for quick updating.

Provisions to name, edit and store newsboxs for feeds.

Allows users to edit then store download conditionals such as scanning intervals.

Provides the ability to edit, delete or update any of these parameters.

Provides Eudora-compatible mailboxes to store feeds info.

I strongly recommend it.

I think it important to mention that over the last couple of years I have used other Eudora plug-ins written by Brana Bujenovic and I've found them to be all reliable and very well written, there is a nice consistency and uniformity to all of his work.

Bujenovic's work clearly shows up the paucity of Eudora's development by today's standards and with his products he's made it abundantly clear to all users about how negligent Qualcomm has been in developing Eudora in recent years. Us Eudora users would be just left stranded without efficient well-developed add-ons from such small independent developers. Let's be very thankful that people like Brana Bujenovic are providing up-to-date Eudora development for us.

Cons

Perhaps the user notes could be a little bit more detailed but after all, there is very little to explain, as the whole process is so obvious. It is true this developer does not write extensive notes for any of his plug-ins but like RSS Feeds Aggregator for Eudora 1.2, the majority of them do not need detailed notes anyway.................[**FOOTNOTE**:--->> INFO ABOUT EUDORA'S PROBLEMS: This review is not the place to provide a detailed expose into the labyrinth of woes that besets the Eudora mail client but it's important to give the non-Eudora user a glimpse of the problems to set the scene before for any reasonable appraisal of third-party products for Eudora can be undertaken.

Any reasonably knowledgeable Eudora user knows that Qualcomm hasn't done anything significantly worthwhile to Eudora in yonks except to tinker around the edges with irrelevancies such as 'MoodWatch' and 'BossWatch' whilst it has all but ignored important mail management features and other substantial issues for many years.

Qualcomm has let Eudora wither with a raft of problems: Eudora is still essentially plain ASCII-based text mailer with a rough non-W3C compliant HTML coat that fools no one except the naive. This editor is nigh on useless, it cannot handle images correctly (it regularly loses images and slows down to a crawl after images are inserted into a message), nor does the editor support Unicode (Microsoft mailers have done so for years). Eudora cannot manage or delete duplicate messages, nor is there any adequate mail management utility or features other than simple mailbox storage. Eudora's mailbox naming conventions are short, limited, and quirky and there is no adequate protection for one's messages if the mailbox is damaged. Moreover, this is just the beginning, there are pages more of such inadequacies.]
