Eudora has lightning fast searches, is fast in general, and handles multiple accounts very easily. Plus I can have separate mailboxes open in separate windows.

Oh how could I forget! Multiple accounts! This is an awesome feature and it works really well! I use multiple accounts, multiple signatures and multiple stationery.
What can I say, it's a breeze to use!

All of those features and it is cross-platform so I don't have the hassle of learning three different email programs.

That said, Eudora for OSX needs an update.

I still love the program - I have an XP box running Eudora handling email from 5 domains and sorting, redirecting and (thanks to the spam filters) dealing with 50k spam a week and forwarding the legit mail to my .Mac and Gmail accounts.

Eudora for the Mac needs more robust filtering and a little better imap "delete" feature... but I'm a licensed owner of at least 11 copies .....

Apple Mail is still not as fast as Eudora in general, but it certainly does allow viewing any mailbox in any window if you choose File > New Viewer Window and select a folder. I use that all the time, any number of windows you want. And since Apple Mail incorporated Spotlight, searches are now comparable to Eudora for my uses. I used Eudora faithfully for over a decade, but put up with Eudora's aging codebase and bewildering UI up until Tiger, when Apple Mail finally reached a state where I converted my mailboxes (use Eudora Mailbox Cleaner, not the built-in Mail converter) and abandoned Eudora forever. Now I am perfectly happy with Apple Mail and its integration with the rest of OS X, while Eudora languishes.

At least I didn't make the mistake of claiming Eudora superiority based on Apple Mail observations that are a version or two out of date.

Eudora's also the only app I know that hasn't gobbled up more and more screen real estate as time progressed and screens got bigger. There's no way I could keep the same amount of information (messages/mailboxes) open in Mail.app and still have half my screen unobscured for working with that information....

Eudora also uses an industry-standard mailbox format, so that if I do ever find something else that meets my needs, it will be easy to switch.
