"USE EUDORA PRO 4.3 MORE EFFICIENTLY WITH KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS" Page 1, 2
A Short-cut Email Session
We launch Eudora Pro like we always do (it's in your Startup group, isn't it?). This may be the last incident in a while we use the mouse for.
Of course we first want to know whether we have received some new messages. To make Eudora check the servers for mail, we press CTRL-M; this means we hold down the key labeled "Ctrl" while pressing "m".
Browsing and Deleting
The first of the new messages is not spam, not from our boyfriend, not from mom, it is simply boring. This is why we quickly advance to the next one. This works with the "down" arrow key.
The "up" key takes us to the previous message in the list. Instead of the "up" key, we can also use the "left" key, and pressing the "right" key (that's what we do all the time, huh?) takes us to the next message, just as much as the "down" key.
Switching from very boring messages to boring messages helps a bit, but the very boring mails are still there. Fortunately, it takes only one keystroke to remove a message: we press CTRL-D and the message is gone.
To create a brand new email message, we press CTRL-N in Eudora Pro.
If we want to reply to an email, we first need to know who the reply should go to. If we want it to be delivered only to the sender of the original mail, we press CTRL-R. If our reply should reach both the sender of the original mail and all other recipients except us, we use CTRL-SHIFT-R.
In the message window we can navigate between the To: and Subject: header fields and the message body with Tab and Shift-Tab (going "backwards"). The latter, in contrast to Tab only also works in the message body.
To check the spelling of our message, we use CTRL-6. Once the spelling is correct, we can send (or queue, depending on our settings) the message using CTRL-E.
