Not that I had noticed.  Although I don't read many mailing lists in Mac
Eudora any more.  (Also, I wasn't the original accuser of Qualcomm.)

OK, so what does Eudora do to make the RFC 2919 headers useful?  All I think
it does out of the box is not filter any of them in its presentation of a
message, leading to endless complaints about "those headers" and being the
prime trigger for Mailman's current ability to turn them off.  (Then there
was fine-tuning about the List-Post vs announce-only lists, not caused by

Adding them to the Boring Headers list is easier in Mac Eudora than in
Windows Eudora, and I added most of them to the list in Mac Eudora, so that
I had a chance of reading the actual message without scrolling.  (I did edit
the appropriate .ini file for Windows Eudora once...that edit was lost in
the death of a hard drive (my Windows machine isn't important enough to
justify the level of backups which would have gotten it back)).
