Thanks to whoever came up with this. I've been using Eudora since '95, and would hate to give it up.

So much junk gets through, but a few weeks ago, I tried to send a friend a Youtube link, & msg was flagged as spam!
I have the same problem, same time line. I have done the "notepad" insertion but then can not save because I do not have permission...says I am not the administrator. Can I override this? My mother in law installed Eudora for me years ago and the 7.1 update. Would she be the administrator? What do I need from her to get acess? Thank you for your help!!
Auuugh!! Why didn't I see this thread sooner?! I have spent the last couple of days changing over all my computers to Thunderbird to do email .... This fix works for my old version 5.1 Eudora!!! Though, I'll admit to having been thinking about switching to Thunderbird for a while now since Eudora 5.1 doesn't know how to deal with UTF-8 encoding in header lines and requires a plug-in to convert body text etc.
Whatever, kudos to the poster with the fix!!
My deudora.ini was this:
DataFolder=C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\Eudora
It didn't make sense to me to add SmtpAuthBanished=CRAM-MD5 again and I wondred about mine indicatng the data folder path, but folks here said it worked, so I went ahead and put it after the last line.
It didn't work. What am I doing wrong?
If this is a clue, the incoming email comes with the error message,
"<Dominant> Connection to the Mail Server... [02:20:39 PM] SSL Negotiaion Failed Unknown Error Certificate bad: Destination Host name does not match host name in certificate But ignoring this error because Certificate is trusted. The connection with the server had been lost Cause (200)"
When I send email, a "Server SSL Certificate Rejected" window opens and states an :Unknown Error."
Incidentally, I spoke with a Verizon guy who sincerely tried to help for more than an hour.. he was unfamiliar with Eudora, but as I've been using it since about 1998 or maybe before, so we able to navigate to anythign he asked for. he brought somebody else in, but the bottom line was (my words) "tough cookies," apparently the offical Verizon position on unsupported email clients. I understand this as the date on Eudora 7.1 is 2006, so I expect they regard it as dead.
Update/Addendum to my earlier post.
It appears that where I went wrong was that I apparently had forgotten that part of the day when I visited the forum and added SmtpAuthBanished=CRAM-MD5 to the deudora.ini file. It worked back then, but now it doesn't. I don't know when it started, but on checking mail I was getting the previously posted error message, "SSL Negotiation Failed Unknown Error Certificate bad. Destination Host name does not match host name in certificate, but ignoring this error because Certificate is trusted,an" and the email downloaded just fine. I could also send mail just fine too.
Then two days ago when I tried to send queued message I got the "SSL Negotiation Failed. Unknown Errror. Certificate Bad. Destination host name does not match host name, etc." and the "Server SSL Rejected" pop-up window. The previous message illustrates my frustration.
What I did was REMOVE SmtpAuthBanished=CRAM-MD5 from the deudora.ini, restarted, and although I still couldn't send messages and still got the error message and pop-up window, I could receive them without an error message. So then I put SmtpAuthBanished=CRAM-MD5 back into the deudora.ini file and it was the same as not having it. I could receive email error free, but sending was the same failure.
The Verizon guy who talked to me for an hour mentioned that there was a major email problem at about the same time my problems began that had email shut down all day, even including web mail, so maybe in the process of correcting that, things gor changed that are causing this. In his defense, I don't think a tech support guy would know that much of the details of what went on and even if he did, I doubt the bureauracy would allow him to admit fault. Maybe they'll fix it.
In the interim though, I'm at a loss what to do now. Any ideas?
Avast users report that its certificate manager has blocked the updated Verizon Certificate. Apparently you have to manually accept it. Hope it works for you.
Something similar may be true for other Network security suites.
