    Strongly suggest you go to that forum and get Eudora working properly. Eudora, even after all these years, is still the best mail app out there. I've been using since about 1995.

    I solved my probs with links (3rd party browsers like chrome):
    1. Win 10 gives you several other ways to make 3rd party browsers your default. By file, by protocol, by app. Make sure you enable them all for the file names and the http and https protocol.
    2. I un-checked the "use Microsoft viewer" box under settings/viewing mail. Then the links worked. However, the email body in Eudora was text based only. When I re-enabled "use Microsoft viewer" box, the links continued working and the email bodies were html based. So un-checking the box and checking it again solved the problem. I suspect this links issue was related to the fact Eudora was already installed when I did the Win 10 upgrade. I did not feel confident to un-install and re-install Eudora after the upgrade.

    The second problem was opening attachments and that one was solved by updating various file associations after Win 10 upgrade.

    I did get good tips here as well as the list Paul recommended. I have joined that list and a google list and will uses them as needed.

    Thanks for all the help. Now I will have more years to enjoy Eudora... Paul...
