* File execution security hole in Eudora 5.1

A flaw in the way Eudora 5.1 handles file attachments could
allow for malicious code to be run on the affected system
without the user's permission. No patch is currently available, although users are being urged to disable the "Use Microsoft viewer..." option, which is normally turned on by default.

I don't know if this is old news (if so, my apologies) or "breaking" news. I'm not an Eudora user

Thank you MNW. I've been experimenting with Eudora for awhile now seeing if it can replace my old DOS client (yarn). Good to know.
