Ok..... don't get me wrong, theres nothing wrong with using Eudora....... but i'd say atleast 75% of our customer base that is running it pronounces it's name incorrectly. It isnt ENDORA, wheres the N in EUDORA!!!!!! This isnt star wars...... there are no ewoks here....... its a mail program with no N in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :mad: :sword: :mfinger: :gun:

Wasn't Endora the mother on Bewitched?

FWIW, when you look up Endora on Google, it says "Did you mean Eudora?"
LMAO

Andora had two r inside ... Andorra ... and she was goddess of love and fertility ... Yes ... something bewithcing is there ...

EUDORA was one of the OKEANIDES. As a cloud-goddess she probably represented clouds which provided a good downpour of rain.


That's our favorite mail client :(

Ok ... just remembered.
One company had very sophisticated software named 'Janus'. Thay was tried to move it into American market. Unfortunately, trademark 'Janus' was already registered in USA. Ok, the creators of software decided slightly change the name, so it will remain well known in original country and ... they made accent on X11 platform they used for creation. So, You can only imagine what happen when they was trying to register trademark X-anus in USA. Anyway, this trademark still registered in original country.
