[REBOL] Cerebrus and Eudora 5.2

From: gchiu:compkarori at: 10-Nov-2002 23:20

Well, it seems that Eudora does things somewhat differently which I guess is good. But as was pointed out to me by Louis, Cerebrus 0.9.8 doesn't work with it. I guess Qualcomm being one of the authors of the RFC2449 meant that they *had* to use their proposals! Specifically, Eudora first queries the pop server with a CAPA command which I've never seen used in OE, or CGPro which is the client I normally use. And of course it wasn't documented in the earlier RFCs I read. (I wonder if any other common email client uses CAPA.) Anyway, I have now fixed it to the point where Eudora 5.2 will now download email, and also runs in my testmode where it grabs hundreds of email off the hard drive instead of the pop server. I've also allowed the user name to have two "@" present as it turns out that some ISPs require you to use your full email address as the login userid. So, for Eudora 5.2 users: I've also set up Stefan Falk's discussion board to discuss the shortcomings of Cerebrus. I had to make a few changes to get the discussion board to work under Apache, and these are documented in the Rebolforces disussion board in the General Discussion Topic -- Graham Chiu
