Eudora 8 beta email client is based on Thunderbird

Eudora 8If you were born before 1980, odds are you've used the Eudora email client at one point or another. While Outlook, Thunderbird, and online email services like Gmail and Yahoo! Mail get all the attention these days, once upon a time Eudora was the bomb.

Well, digg up the parachute pants, because Eudora is back, this time as a Mozilla project. The new Eudora is based on the open-source Thunderbird email client, but has the familiar look and feel of Eudora.

Eudora 8.0.0 beta includes Eudora's toolbar icons, keyboard shortcuts, and menu structure, among other things.

You can easily import mailboxes and messages from Eudora or from Thunderbird. There's also an option to import filters from Eudora, although this won't work with every filter as Thunderbird doesn't use the same structure as Eudora.

Eudora 8 beta comes in Windows and Mac varieties.
