I miss Eudora.

I have been trying to migrate myself over to Apple's Mail.app from Google apps email and honestly, the switch is not going so well. While I'm willing to accept it's probably more of a function of my brain being trained in one specific way for so many years, I am still not sure it's going to be the client for me.

First of all, I love the way gmail threads msgs together. Apple's Mail.app does it, but the interface just feels backwards to me - and it's not as seamless as gmail. It's odd though, I've talked to other people about this issue and some people just hate the way gmail threads work, let alone the interface as a whole.

Euroda, may it rest in peace, was close to the perfect mail application but it died a slow and painful death - at leasr painful for me. Though it didn't have threading, there were rumors about it being developed. There have been some attempts to bring it back to life but none so far have succeeded.

So I'm going to continue to try to readjust my brain to mail.app. I found a couple of plug-ins that seem to help a little... but I am having a really weird issue that when I search for msgs, but I'm going to do a little more research before explain the issue as well as hopefully the solution.
