Information on Eudora Modes


Eudora is now available in three modes: Sponsored, Paid, and Light. If you download Eudora from their site at, it will automatically install in sponsored mode.

  • Sponsored Mode provides the full-featured Eudora at no charge, but it does display small advertisements. The advertising does not appear within the body of email messages.
  • Paid Mode provides the full-featured Eudora without advertising.
    • This software can be purchased from Eudora's web page at or through the NDSU Bookstore.
  • Light Mode is an upgrade for existing Eudora Light users. It does not contain advertising, but includes fewer features than the Sponsored and Paid Modes.

  To change the mode or customize the ads you see in sponsored mode:

  • From the Menu Bar, click on Help, then Payment and Registration.
  • From the Payment and Registration window, you can choose the mode you want to use, customize the ads you see, or find the latest versions of Eudora.
