Yeah... right now I'm running Windows, plan to migrate to BSD but delaying 
that until my life is settled again. Meantime, I looked at Sylpheed Claws 
and it's not yet stable for Windows.

Guess I'll just have to wait and re-evaluate when I'm ready for the migration.

Meantime, if Eudora pisses me off too much, I can always migrate to 
Pocomail. Done that for a few things anyway.

I was thinking that unsubscribe isn't necessarily the only thing one might 
want to do with one's subscription. Maybe a multi-function button -- like 
the ones I see in Mozilla -- depending on what headers it sees.
