Mac Eudora keeps its settings in the Eudora Settings file in the same
folder as the mailboxes, etc.  I said "Eudora Settings"...it can be named
anything if it is double-clicked (or an alias to it is double-clicked, or
any other means is used).  The folder is named Eudora Folder and is in the
Documents folder (System Folder on archaic Macs).  It can likewise be named
anything and put anywhere if its Eudora Settings file is used to start

I don't know whether the URL method of setting the "Boring headers" works
on Mac Eudora, or not.  It would require learning the number associated
with the setting.

The Boring headers settings pane works fine in my experience for Mac Eudora
and would be my recommendation.
