me too: it's horrible
Authored by: metamorphy on Apr 02, '04 02:36:15PM

It's a real problem guys. I'm running Eudora Pro 6.0.2 (paid) with Mac OS 10.3.3 on a G4 running at 1.4 GHz.

I'm currently doing a search for the word "games" on my junk folder which has 20,819 emails in yet (yes, all <30 days old) in an attempt to find false positives. I'm running Eudora in the foreground with the search window in front and no other programs (I'm typing this on a separate computer.)

So far Eudora has found 10,422 matches and taken:

1 hour and 25 minutes

and is not done yet. Even if it were searching all the emails at a ridiculously slow rate of 4 per second, it would be done by now. Looking at a text file I can almost skim that fast myself visually. I know in Eudora 5.x I had would have been able to do this whole search in under a minute.

There's no way I can work if I can't find emails, and there's no way I can find emails if I can't search my mailboxes, and there's no way I can search my mailboxes if it takes hours for every search. I'll need to try the downgrade or switch mail programs, even though I've been a Eudora customer for 9 years.
