I have been running for a real long time. Over a year. Today,
when I open Eudora I get a notification to update. How can I turn
this update off? Thanks. Update Glitch

To update what?

In what form did such notification appear,
and what exactly did it say?

Try closing and then start it again.

The old Qualcomm server functions which used to provide
"latest version" information and registration code vs. version info
appear to have been replaced by links to the "download" page at Eudora,
and otherwise no longer appear functional.

Was it a (messed up) image of this page:
but shown in a Eudora pop-up window titled "Update Eudora"?

Qualcomm may have caused this nonsense
by replacing a page on one of their original Eudora servers.

Various things which can be turned off, in all versions,
via lines in the "[Settings]" section of Eudora.ini
(in "Data" folder) or Deudora.ini (in "Programs" folder):

How long will the download take? It depends greatly on your Internet
connection. With a 56k dial-up modem, it will take approximately 40
minutes to download the Windows installer (approximately 25 minutes
for the Macintosh installer).

Notice to OS X 10.5 'Leopard' users:

In order for Macintosh Eudora to work well under OS X 10.5.x
'Leopard', you need to turn off the use of specific sounds in Eudora.
These are the sounds Eudora plays when you get new mail or Eudora
needs your attention, or are played by Filters. The sounds that are
problematic are the ones that contain 'Eudora' in their name as they
were created using a sound synthesizer that Leopard does not support.
To disable or change the sounds used in Eudora, do the following:

Turn off or change the 'New Mail' and "Attention" sounds: Open
Eudora->Preferences and select the 'Getting Attention' panel In the
'Sounds' section, for both 'New mail sound' and 'Attention sound',
select a sound OTHER than one that has 'Eudora' in its name (ie. NOT
'Eudora Attention', 'Eudora New Mail' nor 'Eudora Short Warning')
Click OK to the close the Preferences

Turn off sounds triggered by filters: Open Window->Filters Look
through all your filters for filters that have a 'Play Sound' action.
Select a sound that does NOT have 'Eudora' in its name, or disable
sounds all together by selecting 'None' from the action popup menu.

I tried this but the change won't stick. Update Glitch

1. Double check your system for more than one eudora.ini file.
You *may* be updating an instance that is not currently active.

2. Make sure your Eudora.ini file is not accidentally marked as
Read Only. This *may* happen if you have restored Eudora
from a backup CD or DVD.

Insert them, following the initial line: [Settings]
(edit only while Eudora is not running)

That's the entire web page at http://www.yqcomputer.com/

I saw it when I started up a Version 6 folder
that had not been opened in a long time.

Qualcomm has just caused this to happen,
by skipping the page which used to
match the version in use against the current version,
jumping instead to the "download" page,
which doesn't even display properly in the viewer.

You can just close the pop-up and ignore it.
