Eudora OSE is a mail and news application from Qualcomm based on the open source Thunderbird client from Mozilla.
Qualcomm is committed to both preserving the Eudora user experience and to maintaining maximum compatibility, for both developers and users, with Thunderbird.
Qualcomm goal is to build a single development community around Eudora and Thunderbird, so that both mailers advance faster than they previously have.
Whereas "Eudora OSE" is a branded version of Thunderbird with some extra features added by the Eudora developers, "Penelope" is an extension (also called an "add-on") that is used in Eudora OSE and can also be used with Thunderbird.
The Eudora OSE installer includes the corresponding version of Penelope along with it so there is no need to install Penelope if you are installing Eudora OSE. Most features in Penelope can be accessed when used with Thunderbird, but there are a few that require Eudora OSE in order to work correctly and it`s not something that gets tested.
