I recently installed Eudora 5 and I cannot read Greek messages. My OS is Windows XP.  Is there a way I can make the Greek fonts legible in Eudora?

Thank you,

Here is another source:

http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/Help/fonthelp.html

If these two links don't give you enough help, try using "greek font"
as the search argument in this search engine:

http://www.google.com/

One of the OPTIONS under TOOLS in EUDORA allows you to have control of font spacing.

The links you suggested, I am fraid, did not solve the problem. The other applications have no problems with Greek fonts.

I was able to find a work around for Windows XP. If one goes to international settings > advanced then choose Greek from the drop down list and from the list below tick the appropriate character sets (I personally chose all the sets that map Latin and English) and then press apply. In this way I was able to make the program display and write in Greek. (I am not sure if other people can read it though).

I guess I get to keep the points!

hi
follow this step

This file, then is only to be used for Romanian (and Albanian). Do not use this as well as the Central Europe file, as they will conflict with each other - both translate from the Latin-2 network and Windows standards. The Romanian file contains four tables, for mail from Macs, Windows, the ISO (International) standard and an IBM Code page.
MacRomanian<->ISO-8859-2. This is a table that transcodes from the Mac Romanian system to the ISO 8859-2 (Latin 2) standard. The message is marked "iso-8859-2".

MacRomanian. This table is best used only to other Mac users (with Romanian fonts). It does not transcode anything, so all characters, including those not existent in 8859-x, will survive. The message is marked "x-mac-romanian".

MacRomanian<->Windows-1250. This table transcodes to and from Central Europan Windows (i.e. Code Page 1250, or 'Windows Latin 2'). The message is marked "windows-1250"

MacRomanian<->IBM852/Latin-2. This is for mail from an older Central European code page made for IBM / DOS machines, named Code Page 852. Although it is not likely to be much used in email, you may come across it, so we have provided a transcoding table for it. The message is marked "ibm852"

In addition, there are two "repair tables" also for this package (see above, under Cyrillic, and "Repair Latin1, below). They are for the Windows and ISO 8859-2 tables. The repair tables are marked by a star (*).

Greek
The Greek file contains five tables for mail from Macs, Windows, the ISO (International) standard and two IBM Code pages.

MacGreek<->ISO-8859-7. This is a table that transcodes from the Mac Greek system to the ISO 8859-7 standard (also called 'ELOT 928'). The message is marked "iso-8859-7".

MacGreek. This table is best used only to other Mac users (with Greek fonts). It does not transcode anything, so all characters, including those not existent in 8859-x, will survive. The message is marked "x-mac-greek".

MacGreek<->Windows-1253. This table transcodes to and from Greek Windows (i.e. Code Page 1253). The message is marked "windows-1253"

MacGreek<->IBM737. This is for mail from an older Greek code page made for IBM / DOS machines, named Code Page 737. Although it is not likely to be much used in email, you may come across it, so we have provided a transcoding table for it. The message is marked "ibm737"

MacGreek<->IBM869. This is for mail from another Greek code page made for IBM / DOS and OS/2 machines, named Code Page 869. The message is marked "ibm869"

In addition, there are two "repair tables" also for this package (see above, under Cyrillic, and "Repair Latin1, below). They are for the Windows and ISO 8859-7 tables. The repair tables are marked by a star (*).

It seems that I soved the problem by myself and I get to keep the points. There is another twist to it though: sometimes I get mail in GreeK that I cannot read but the solution by ranjan01 seems to complicated and not worth the trouble. So I consider this question anwered.
