Hello everyone,

I see many familiar names here of those who have been helping
others for many years. Many years ago, I did something to screw up my
newsreader (Agent 1.93) and was unable to see my posts, and any
responses. This morning, I was desperate, and in less than 7 seconds,
I stumbled on, and fixed, the error.

So, here I am, and I have a question. Long ago, I read
discussions on the subject of ridding incoming e-mails of the
gobbleygook that appears at the top of the mail. All I can recall is
that an addition to Eudora's.ini file would accomplish that, but I
cannot find out how to do that.

Here's a sample of the gobbleygook, and your help in
eliminating that would be very much appreciated.

Long ago, I read discussions on the subject of ridding incoming
e-mails of the gobbleygook that appears at the top of the mail.
All I can recall is that an addition to Eudora's.ini file would
accomplish that, but I cannot find out how to do that.
Add a Tabooheaders= line to the [Settings] section of the .ini file,
like this one:
TabooHeaders=X-,Mime-,Content-,Message-,In-,Delivered-,Disposition-,
Original-,Resent-,Return-,User-,Thread-,List-,Errors-,RT-,Managed-,
DomainKey-,Transfer-,Authentication-,eudora-,Feedback-,DMARC-,Received,
Sender,Organization,Precedence,Priority,Encoding,Status,References,
Importance,DKIM-Signature,Accept,MyHeaderName,spamdiagnostic
(Note: this all must be on *one* line)

Thanks, Piet. I found another solution, posted by Faisal in a
separate thread, and I quote his response to the question. It's
really easy to do and eliminates typos and other errors that might be
made when accomplishing the goal *the long way.*

So, with thanks to Faisal:

<quote>Hi,
I think the solution is in Eudora itself.

Open Eudora then go to "Tools" then "Options" and from Options select
the third category from bottom and it is called "Content
Concentrator".

Once you are there adjust the Single Messages Profile on the right
hand side.

I tried the second one which is "Messages Window" and set it to
compact.

The headers disappered but if you need to see the headers for some
reason then click on BLAH BLAH.

Have a go yourself and good luck.

Ah, the latter explains why I did see that posting, but couldn't
find it back.

The "long way" is a matter of copy & paste, and you're in full control.
Faisal's easy way does work, but it gives you less control, and you'll
sooner or later discover that long To: and Cc: lines are "shortened"
(the middle portion is cut out), which definitely wasn't what I wanted.

Thanks for that clue, Piet. I've been warned.

Hello everyone,

newsreader (Agent 1.93) and was unable to see my posts, and any
responses. This morning, I was desperate, and in less than 7 seconds,

So, here I am, and I have a question. Long ago, I read
discussions on the subject of ridding incoming e-mails of the
gobbleygook that appears at the top of the mail. All I can recall is
that an addition to Eudora's.ini file would accomplish that, but I
cannot find out how to do that.
Here's a sample of the gobbleygook
snip

TabooHeaders is a comma separated list of headers that will not show
when ShowAllHeaders is turned off. The easiest way to implement this
is with an Option:

<X-Eudora-Option:TabooHeaders=>


Copy the link and paste it in the body of a new message in Eudora. (if
you are using Agent the link will work there without having to paste
it in Eudora). Press the enter key once if the link doesn't appear in
blue.Then hold down the alt key while clicking the link. A "Change
Option" window will appear. In the "New Value" field type the headers
you don't want to see. If you just type the first letter of a header,
then all headers starting with that letter will be tabooed. You may
want to type a,b,c, etc ......z, and omit d for Date, f for From, s
for Subject, t for To, and so forth


If you don't want to see any headers at all, type the entire alphabet.


a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j,k,l,m,n,o,p,q,r,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z

Using Content Concentrator you can achieve about the same results, but
I think that that works only when you are using the Preview pane.

No. The setting in Tools / Options works globally. With Preview pane
you can set it for each mailbox separately.

But I'm surprised that (many?) Eudora users still appear to use the
Preview pane. Long ago it was already considered Bad Practice, because
a message would be opened by simply selecting it, and thus also messages
containing or (via html) pulling in dangerous stuff.

I never ever use the preview pane, and by the same token I haven't set
"Automatically open next message" in Viewing Mail. The way I deal with
messages I consider suspicious or worth closer examination is:
- Drag the message to Junk (note that this already excludes using the
preview pane, because just selecting the message for dragging might
open Pandora's box).
- Open Junk.mbx with Notepad.
- Delete the message if it indeed contains bad stuff.
- Otherwise drag the message back to Inbox.

It is easier and faster to just right-click on a message in the
message summary and then select Junk in the context menu. Works with
and without the Preview pane.

There was no Preview pane in the original Eudora. I seem to remember
that it was introduced in one of the 3 versions around the year 2000.
I didn't like it and have never used it.

Sure works, but it's neither easier nor faster than dragging the
message to the Junk mailbox.

Don't tell me you have "Allow executables in HTML content" (Viewing
Mail) actually checked?

If you do, best advice: uncheck it ..... now. Like most Eudora users.

If not, I don't see the relevance.
