ZASS 10.1 and Eudora 7 - jerky e-mail sendings
Since about one month, I noticed that sending e-mails with an attachment was slow and jerky (the message seems to be sent by fragments getting out very quickly separated by pauses of a few seconds).
After some testing and comparison with another computer, I realized that this was probably due to ZA as the problem disappear if I exit ZA. What is strange is that if a restart ZA, the problem does NOT reappear before a certain time (a few days). When it has reappeared, the same maneuver (existing and restarting ZA) makes it disappearing again for a certain time.
Any suggestion ?

Re: jerky e-mail sendings
You could try to fully remove your ZA and install the latest 10.2.064.000 fresh of any custom settings. This may or may not help. However, if there is an incompatibility between Eudora and ZA this is unlikely to be resolved as Eudora was left undeveloped since at least 6 years and certanly no one will work on compatibility with an abandoned software.
Probably better to finally move to a still supported e-mail client also for security reasons (e.g. free Mozilla thunderbird or paid Outlook) ?
